Mule caravan
Visit one of Albania’s most magnificent mountain ranges is the traditional way! Witness the blessings of natural harmony of the elements and the Holy Mountain of Tomorr on the back of a sturdy mountain mule, just like the mountain people of times past. During ancient, Roman and medieval times, Mount Tomorr was considered the Olympus of the Illyrians, the original people of the region. Tomorr was considered the fairy house of the region, and a divine oracle of the nation. Participants will experience a traditional Albanian village and be treated to seasonal regional cuisine.

Flexibility

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.

Not Included

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!
