Cycling Holidays - Albania Heritage by Bike

Albania Heritage by Bike

Albania

From £1,959 P/P

Discover the beauty and charm of Albania by bike as we ride over mountains, past lakes, quaint villages and through deep gorges towards the beautiful Ionian coast and on to Berat’s Ottoman villas. This tour takes in the hilly country south of the capital, Tirana, and passes through three UNESCO sites. Here many main roads follow the valleys, often following the rolling rivers that have carved out huge gorges. Particularly the Vjosa Gorge, where huge rock walls and cirques dominate the horizon. Extensive plateaus around Lake Ohrid and Gjirokastra provide a patchwork landscape of fields, the remnants of the collective farms.  We cycle from the mountains to the Ionian coast and follow a shady road through pine forests that snakes its way through fishing villages. We land at Saranda and make a side trip to the architectural ruins of Butrint, a UNESCO site. We spend our last nights on the stunning coast and end our tour on a private beach.
