Overview

Learn traditional recipes and eat delicious Valbona cuisine in these  8 days of local experience in Albania. Tour the northern Albanian Alps, ride a horse along the mountain road, visit the old mill and explore the waterfalls of Valbona and Theth. Taste the delicious local wines and sip some Raki. Be local! Come to the north of Albania and experience sights few tourists get to see. Try your hand in the kitchen as you enjoy a hands-on cooking class with your hosts. You’ll help prepare and enjoy the cuisine of this beautiful, picturesque region of the country using fresh ingredients from the farm.

Moreover, our accommodation in Valbona is a rural guesthouse set in the northern Alps with beautiful valley views. The property has a small farm and many outdoor areas including a terrace where you can relax. Also, our group leader knows a lot about locally grown organic produce. Moreover, he loves showing visitors around the region of his ancestors.

We hike the classic pass of the Albanian northern Alps that for centuries linked the two most known valleys of the area, Valbona, and Theth. We use mules to carry the luggage to the next house. Several stops at lovely springs along the way make the journey pleasant and refreshing.
