Itinerary

First PartDriving from Tirana/Durres toward Vlora

We will leave Tirana at 07:30 to head toward the southern coastal part of Albania. In around 2:30 hours of drive, we will have reached the “City of Independence”, Vlora. In addition, we will join a small group about the tour organized by our local partners in Vlora. In this 3-hour tour, we will be able to cover some of the best parts of  Karaburun-Sazan National Marine Park, renowned for its rich biodiversity and stunning natural beauty. The national marine park encompasses terrestrial and marine ecosystems, making it a haven for nature enthusiasts. The park is home to diverse flora and fauna, from rare plant species to a myriad of marine life.

Second PartThe Former Military Island of Sazan

Sazan Island stands as the largest island in Albania, a treasure trove of history and natural wonders waiting to be explored. This enigmatic island of the Albanian Riviera has been known since ancient times, with the ancient Greeks being among its earliest visitors. Its strategic location has bestowed it with a fascinating military history, evident in the extensive underground tunnels that crisscross beneath its surface. These tunnels, once secretive military installations, now add an air of mystery and adventure to the island, inviting explorers to delve into its hidden depths. One of the island’s most striking features is its dramatic rock formations, sculpted by nature over millennia. These formations, along with the island’s rugged coastline, have remained untouched, offering a pristine and unspoiled environment that stands in stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of modern life. Hiking along these ancient paths provides breathtaking views of the surrounding seas and the unique geological features that make Sazan Island a geologist’s paradise. 

For those interested in birdwatching, the island is a sanctuary for various bird species, offering ample opportunities to observe these creatures in their natural habitat. In addition to its natural allure, Sazan Island also holds significant cultural and historical importance. Furthermore, the remnants of past civilizations and military fortifications tell a story of an island that has played a crucial role throughout history. Today, efforts are being made to preserve these historical sites, ensuring that future generations can appreciate the island’s rich heritage. Whether you are exploring the ancient underground tunnels, marveling at the untouched rock formations, or diving into the crystal-clear waters of the Adriatic and Ionian Seas, Sazan Island offers a unique and enriching experience. It’s a place where history and nature converge, providing a serene escape from the modern world.

Second StopHaxhi Alia's Cave (Pirates Cave) and some small remote beys

 The tour continues with a mesmerizing 40-minute boat ride to the iconic Haxhi Ali Cave, where you’ll have a generous 20 minutes to swim, snorkel, explore, and be enchanted by the cave’s natural beauty. A famous cave with a total length of around 100m has been used by various Sailors and Pirates, where one of the most famous was Haxhi Aliu from the city of Ulcin in today’s Montenegro. Free time to swim and explore the cave. 

Free time in some remote bays for swimming and sunbaths and return to Vlora base. 

 

Third StopMonastery of Zvernec

After leaving Vlora and lunch we will head toward the Island of Zvernex. Connected now by a wooden, picturesque bridge this Island is the seat of the active Orthodox Monastery of Zvernec. 

On a small island within the Narta Lagoon, the Zvernec Monastery appears before hundreds of pine trees.

Also known as the St. Mary Of Divinity Church, the Byzantine-era church was thought to be built sometime during the 14th century. Despite its age, the building is extremely well preserved.

The inside is full of beautiful paintings and exceptionally intricate woodworking. The outside has a well-maintained garden, and a few modern structures belonging to the church.

Right next to the entrance to the bridge, metal flamingos shoot out from the water. These are here because Narta Lagoon is known for its actual flamingos. After a long absence, the area is now said to be home to around 3,000 of these long-necked fellows.

If you like birds, you can also have a seat along the shore and search the skies and water for pelicans, herons, and a few other species.

After an afternoon spend in Zvernec, return in Tirana at the evening
