Bees and their keepers: Learn about the Albanian beekeeping tradition and practices and the wealth of bee forage in the country that Aristotle already emphasized. Taste different honey specialties, like mjalt mare or chestnut honey. Visit rural beekeepers and experience honey harvesting and other bee products such as propolis or royal jelly first-hand.
Albanian cuisine: Discover gastronomic treasures – ‘petanik’, a bean pie of Korça; ‘qingj në hell’, skewered lamb of the Labëria area and typical food ‘me mjaltë’ (with honey) like Shendetlie, a honey and nut cake. Take a cooking class along the way, enjoy picnics at the sea and on a mountain and experience Albania’s indigenous wines and best raki at a winery.
Passionate people: Meet the people at the heart of the Honey Trail – beekeepers who share their love for the craft of beekeeping, organic farmers who offer an insight into their farming, local rangers who show you the wild flowers, herbs and trees that make the Albanian honey so special, or the chef who happily imparts the secrets of Albanian cuisine.
