Snowshoeing In the holy Mountain of Tomorr

Snow shoeing

Overview

Mount Tomorri lies to the east of the city of Berat and northeast of the town of Çorovoda and enjoys the status of a National Park.
Tomorri is the most unique and enigmatic mountain in Albania. It has been called the throne of the gods for its height, ferocity, beauty and riddle.
According to mythology, Pelasgian Dodona or "Bad Winter" Dodona reigned there. There are areas of everlasting snow as well as many water springs In winter, Tomor Mountain is a marvel for nature and snow lovers. Snowshoeing is a sport that gives you fantastic opportunities to experience spectacular scenery, magic, serenity, regeneration and blessing of gods from the shrine of gods.
Falling snow gives you the pleasure of enjoying this spiritual mountain in a completely different way, spending unforgettable moments with friends, family and children who go crazy with playing snowballs.

What to Expect

Early breakfast and departure 5 a:m. SUV trip to Bektashi Tekke (about 2 hours) and preparation for the snowshoeing. The snowshoeing experience will last about 5 hours,reaching the Tomorri Peak and coming back to the Tekke.
After the snowshoeing we will enjoy a local lunch and departure for Berat. If the time promises we highly recommend the wine tasting tour in Nurellary winery.

In Albanian folklore, Mount Tomorr is anthropomorphized and associated with the legendary figure of Baba Tomor , envisioned as an old giant with a long flowing white beard and four female eagles hovering above him and perching on his snow-covered slopes. According to German folklorist Maximilian Lambertz , Baba Tomor is the remnant of an Illyrian deity. Nowadays is a pilgrimage destination for the Bektashi religion.

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
