Hiking and Trekking

Rugged snow-clad alpine peaks, lush green valleys, sparking lakes, wetlands full of wildlife, traditional villages and a varied coast embracing two seas - the Adriatic and the Ionian Sea - Albania has all the ingredients necessary to develop hiking and trekking tourism. Even though hiking maps and the signposting of tracks has become more common and supra-regional and transnational mountain trails are slowly emerging, for inexperienced hikers it is advised to participate in an organized tour or to benefit from the services of local or experienced mountain guides. There exist also many ancient routes perfect for walking tours or trekking ones like the ancient Via Egnatia that connect Durres with Istanbul or the Ceasar path into the Llogara National Park .
