Local food and gastronomy
Located only 3 kilometers from Shëngjin town, the Rana e Hedhun beach (Gheg dialect of Albanian), thrown our poured sand in English, remains relatively unexplored, and it is considered a rare forgotten Mediterranean landscape. It seems as if the sand dunes has descended from the mountain Rrenc while, in other moments, it seems that the sea has the more active role in shaping it. The pine trees surrounding the area make a stunning view and a worth destination, not far away from Tirana to visit on a day trip.

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!
