Full description

Embark on a journey through the wild terrain of Permet, in Albania’s scenic south. Get picked up in Tirana for a tour of the peaks, valleys, and hidden gems lying along the Vjosa River. Go rafting in wild waters, fill up on local cuisine, and spend the night in a hotel while soaking up the culture.

Once you arrive and settle in Permet, head straight to the river for a quick rafting lesson before taking on Vjosa. Get ready for an adrenaline rush while sailing in the wild streams and canyons. Rest up with a riverside picnic lunch and admire the lush green views of the treasured region.

Enjoy dinner at the hotel, and take some time to wander the rustic streets before turning in for the night. On day 2, rise early for a tour of the lesser-known spots in Permet, followed by a picturesque hike. Visit the villages of Lipe and Leuse, with 14th century Greek Orthodox churches and monasteries.

Relax on your ride back to Tirana, and reminisce about your tour through this untamed paradise.
