3 days bike trip north of Tirana

In 2017 I did a trip with my dear friend Ilir Hysa, who has been running the Tirana Backpackers Hostel already for many years. We decided to do a short bike trip together. A bit north of Tirana we found this beautiful route. You can download the GPS track here.

Ode to Albania

This panorama was shot in the valley parallel to the south coast, in the valley of Kuç, called Lumi i Vlorës and also Mesaplik. In the summer season, the coastal area attracts hundred thousands of tourists, whereas if you hop over to the next valley, there is not even a handful of them. However, in 2019 the old road from Vlora to the coast, leading through that valley, will be renewed and become the new main connection.
