Length of trip
We will start our experience in the Kruja Old Bazaar visiting a workshop where we will see how a qeleshe is made. The hat that dates back to ancient times. Being one of the main accessories in our national garb and a symbol of Albanian national identity, the plis (qeleshe) has been arduously preserved by our people for a long time.
After the workshop we will enjoy a period dressing of Albanian traditional costumes and have a walk to the Old Bazaar to learn more about rich handicraft of local artisans. After the local lunch we will enjoy a walking into culture and history at the epicenter of Albanian’s independence from Ottoman Empire and enjoy the great views that the city offers.
The trip fare doesn’t include coffee and any kind of drink except water. 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.
