Day-1 Tirana – Dajti – Tirana
You start your Albanian weekend with the smooth land in Mother Theresa Airport and depart to the capital, from where you will head to Dajti Mountain. There starts your hiking adventure on the slopes of the side of Dajti. Most of the mountain range is part of Dajti National Park, so on one side you will have the ideal clean green nature, and on the other side you will leave behind the noise of the modern capital. Lunch will never enjoy the same as there and after you reach your goal of the day, you will return back to Tirana for dinner and overnight.
Day-2 Tirana – Kruja – Sari Salltik – Tirana
Another adventure awaits you today, and this time is beyond the historical town of Kruja. After leaving behind the main stronghold of Scanderbeg, you will keep on hiking rock after rock in the side of Sari Salltik Mountain, with a tekke on top of it dedicated to a dervish Bektashi saint with the same name. The overview is so stunning that you will be literally breathless.
In the afternoon, before sun going down, you will descend the mountain and depart to Tirana for dinner and overnight.
Day-3 Tirana – Onward
You finish your Albanian weekend with the exploration of the capital, where you will get your last and best impressions of Albania. You will take a look at the Scanderbeg Square, where our national hero stands strong like he stood agains the Ottoman invaders, sorrounded by the historical buildings of the Ministries, the Opera, the Tirana International Hotel, the National Historic Museum, Bank of Albania and Et’hem Beg Mosque. Each of these buildings are symbolic representatives of the era of their construction. Your stroll continues south along Martyrs of the National Boulevard, passing other important landmarks and ending up to Mother Theresa Square at the Polytechnic University.
