Things You Should Bring
Meeting point – Tirana or Berat.
We leave Tirana early in the morning (around 8 a.m) . We drive for about 1,5 hours to the beautiful city of Berat and do a break in hotel Castle Park. Breakfast is provided upon request. After that we depart straight to the Osumi Canyons (about 1,5 hours drive). We arrive in the rafting site and start to get changed and dress the rafting equipment (neoprene suit, jacket, helmet) and go with the minibus to the edge of the Osumi river. There we get the instructions from the professional guides certified by the Albanian Rafting Federation. We start the downriver and enjoy the adrenaline, fun and joy that provide the team sport rafting in the marvellous Osumi Canyons.
It is not included any extra drink except of water. You’ll probably feel like tipping your local 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, 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.
