Skerdilaidi Tour is named after an Illyrian King, son of Pleuratis II. It is an intensive mixture of easy to medium level outdoor activities amid superb landscapes, visits to historical sites, tastes of excellent local food and beverages, and comfortable accommodations.
Highlights: a bicycle round-trip of the Ohrid lake, crossing the Albania/Macedonia border twice; a hike through a fir forest to reach the Stone of Goat, a monument of Nature; a walk through the Langarica Canyon, one of the two grandest of the country; a visit to the cities of Kruja, Pogradec, Korça, Përmet, Tirana and Durrës.
Optimal number of participants is 10-15: upon request, we offer tours for one person, a couple or a family.
