This tour is named after Epikad, the brother of the Illyrian King Gent. It is an intensive mixture of easy to medium level outdoor activities amid superb landscapes, visits to historical sites, samplings of local food and beverages and comfortable accommodations.
Highlights: round-trip by bicycle of the Ohrid lake, crossing the Albania/Macedonia border twice; a hike through fir forests to reach the Stone of Goat, a natural monument; a walk through the Langarica canyon, one of the two grandest of the country; visits to the cities of Kruja, Pogradec, Korça, Përmet, Gjirokastra, Tirana and Durrës.
Optimal number of participants is 10-15: upon request, we offer tours for one person, a couple or a family.
These tours and excursions offer unique and economic opportunities to support and sustain the small local businesses that are working to preserve and protect the Albanian natural treasures by sharing them with caring, respectful visitors.
8:30: Guri i Cjapit (the Stone of Goat) is the day’s objective and requires approximately four hours of hiking through fir forests, so splurge on the tasty local yogurt for breakfast.
14:00:After lunch, a visit to the artificial lake of Gjanç offers the opportunity for a refreshing swim or an invigorating coffee – both in an idyllic setting.
16:00: Up and onwards to a delightful dinner and sound sleep in Përmet.
