Not far from Berat’s city center, the ancient home of the Illyrian gods, Mount Tomorr, rises some 2416 meters above sea level. The mountain is famous for its national park, and also for the deeper, spiritual significance. This sacred mountain, named for and presided over in Albanian lore  by Baba Tomor or Father Tomor, carries a special significance among even modern day Albanians. On this off road adventure we will discover the beauty and the legends of the holy mountain who welcomes over 300 000 pilgrims per year from the whole region.

Meeting point – Hotel Castle Park, Berat. We can come and pick you up in any hotel or guest house in Berat.

 

We drive to Pronovik village for about 45 min in the asphalted road. Than we start the offroad for about 1,5 hours. During the drive we do the first stop in the Abaz Ali foot print, later we visit the Bektashi Tekke and the tomb of Abaz Ali where the mountain reaches the highest peak.

We will have a picnic lunch with local products. Than we drive back to Berat city and visit the Nurellary winery where we will have a wine tasting

Not Included

The trip fare doesn’t include coffee and any kind of drink except water during the picnic lunch and the wine tasting in the Nurellary winery. You’ll have extra activities (optional tour) if you choose them, and you’ll probably feel like tipping your guides at the end of a fabulous trip, though you won’t need to pull out your wallet every few minutes on your Active Albania adventure tour!

Flexibility

We’re really flexible and none of our itineraries are written in stone, so if you have a particular interest you’d like to include or you need to leave a trip earlier or join later (at a pro-rated fare), just let us know and we can almost always make it happen. Likewise, all adventure travel requires a certain amount of flexibility and we sometimes have to make minor changes to the activities because of weather and availability, but we have plenty of options up our sleeve.
