General Trip Information
Level of difficulty (1-5) 2
We will come and pick you up closed to your hotel in Saranda city. Saranda is a city on the Albanian Riviera, southern Albania. Sandwiched between the Ionian Sea and hills of olive groves, the town is edged by beaches and a promenade. Close-by, Butrint is an ancient city, protected as a UNESCO World Heritage site. The hikes are easy and fairly flat trails. It is included the snorkeling kit. Please provide your weight and shoe size. You should pack: • Breathable light-weight waterproof gear (Goretex, Sympatex, etc) • Wind-stopper jackets • Small backpack with rain coverage • Cap • Sunblock • Mosquito repellent • Hiking poles • Water bottle • Sunglasses
Don’t forget your underwater camera.
Heading back to Saranda for the evening, you’ll stop off at the Porto Palermo castle if time allows it; a historic site with a story almost as romantic as the views you’ve seen throughout your hike today.

We’re really flexible and none of our itineraries are written in stone, so if you have a particular interest you’d like to include or you need to leave a trip earlier or join later (at a pro-rated fare), just let us know and we can almost always make it happen. Likewise, all adventure travel requires a certain amount of flexibility and we sometimes have to make minor changes to the activities because of weather and availability, but we have plenty of options up our sleeve.
The trip fare doesn’t include coffee and any kind of drink except water. You’ll have extra activities (optional tour) if you choose them, and you’ll probably feel like tipping your guides at the end of a fabulous trip, though you won’t need to pull out your wallet every few minutes on your Albania Rafting Group adventure tour!
Only 20 km from Saranda you can reach by car or by boat the amazing beach bays of Lukova. This village is located in north of Saranda city. Beautiful landscapes of the sea, crystal clear waters, greenery and an oasis of serenity. From Lukove we will start the 1,5 hours hike to Krorez Bay.
Many have been impressed by his natural beauty, virgin nature, peacefulness and a crystal clear sea water. We will have a short break to enjoy the packed lunch and the opportunity for snorkeling. Than we will hike about 1,5 hours to Kakome beach and use the time for swimming and snorkeling. Kakome is one of the most beautiful stretches of unspoiled beach that can be found in the Mediterranean and certainly the pearl of the Albanian coast.
