NOT ONLY THE MOUNTAINS, BUT REAL PEOPLE AND REAL LIFE
Sondor Travel has been offering walking tours to Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro since 1991. Our wide range of trips includes products such as: Peaks of the Balkans, Valbona Valley, Theth Valley, Gashi River, etc. What differentiates us from the rest is the fact that we are born and raised in the Albanian Alps. This has helped us create a network of guides, assistant guides and walking routes who are the best you can find in the region. Our assistant guides are locals and previously shepherds who know their mountains by heart, competent to make your walking a unique and authentic experience.
In most our walking tours in Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro we use local accommodation, alpine pasture huts, and family running guesthouses. For us it is very important to give you a unique walking experience done in an authentic way. Sometimes it can be a great insight into the local nature, mountain geology, bird life; sometimes it can be an activity such as collecting blueberries, mountain tea, sheep herding and sometimes just being a guest into the local families, knowing their living, beliefs, stories, enjoying the traditional food prepared for us.
