Meeting point – Saranda Tourists Office @ 10 a.m.
Travel with minivan to Butrint.
2-2,5 hours paddling and swimming into the lake and lagoon of Butrint. In antiquity, the amphitheatre was known as Buthrotum, the center of the Greek tribe of Chaonians. By the 4th century BC, Butrint became an important city and had its own amphitheater and temples. Within the next two centuries, it was annexed by the Roman Empire. We will stop in at Ali Pasha which lies some 2.4 kilometres (1.5 mi) due west at the mouth of the Vivari Channel. After the kayaking we will taste e delicious local lunch (fish food based but also meet upon request).
For the present activity you should love the outdoors, own good health condition and have consulted the doctor during the year. Kids over 5 years old are very welcomed.
The trip fare doesn’t include coffee and any kind of drink except water. 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!
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.
