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.
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.
8:00: Breakfast on the beach before visiting the Amphitheater, the famed Archeological Museum and the city’s very cosmopolitan center. The lunch-feasts in Durres make choices challenging!
