Description

An epic tour from Berat to the mountainous park will take you close to a large number of animals such as bears, wolves, and birds of prey day. In addition to its scientific aspects, the natural park landscape is a melting pot of recreation, history, and culture. Apart from the wild, also meet the locals who live in the national park.

 Day 1: Berat–Roshnik-Dardhe–Sotira waterfall

  • We start from Berat early in the morning. Our professional local drivers will come to pick you up.
  • Prepare for an unforgettable scenic drive from Berat to Roshnik.
  • 10 minute tour of Roshnik, a famous village with a rich history. Known as the origin of The Köprülü family, a noble family of Albanian origin in the Ottoman Empire. The family provided six grand viziers (including Kara Mustafa Pasha, who was a stepson).
  • After a café break we start our adventure to Dardha. It is going to take 1h 30 minutes.
  • Dardha is a 700-year-old village, with a beautiful nature located in the heart of National Park.
  • Just five families live living in the village today and they survive on farming. It seems like the life here has stopped 300 years ago. They are hospitable, kind, warm, wise and hard workers, but still far away from modernity.
  • After a drive with an unforgettable view, we arrive in Dardha. Here we meet our local guide who will take us for a 2 hour trek to an amazing waterfall called Sotira. It is the most beautiful waterfall of Albania, coming out from a cave and nobody knows where all this water comes from. Locals believe it to be a miracle of the God of Mountains.
  • We will then enjoy a picnic lunch. Some can enjoy the fresh water while the others can explore nature, caves, birds and animals.
  • We start the trek back to Dardha.
  • We will stay overnight in Dardha, and since it is going to be cold, an fire in the garden will be arranged while you are enjoying the stars and listening to the voice of mother nature before a peaceful sleep.
  • Raki will also be made available for your enjoyment

Day 2: Explore the beauty of Tomorr

  • We will start early in the morning. It will be full trekking day through the stunning view of the park to reach our second destination called Tomorr.

Day 3: Another scenic hike in the Tomorr Mountain

  • We will begin early in the morning and eat breakfast outside in nature and enjoy the wind and view of the village. It will be hard to say goodbye to the locals here who have been living alone for such a long time.
  • Here you are not just a visitor for them but also a part of their families. So you can expect a lot of hugs and smiles from them. In Albanian tradition, a guest is very important and they will do everything to make you happy.
  • Start trekking to Lybesha, which is also an old village and its history is more than 500 years old. This trek will need more energy than 2 other treks but don’t worry, if someone is tired he can try to “Drive the Donkey “
