BOAT TOUR IN KARABURUN&SAZAN MARINE NATIONAL PARK
With turquoise waters, olive fields, ruins of the old Kanina castle, ancient monasteries and famous beaches, Vlora is the perfect destination for those searching a mix of beach and culture. While it can get pretty busy during peak season -especially August- in June, mid July or September you can enjoy the city and surrounding beaches without the crowds. Trips4fun organizes comfortable speedboat expeditions to explore Karaburun peninsula and Sazan island Marine National park, with some of the most spectacular beaches in Europe. The tour is a great chance to discover Haxhi Ali’s pirate cave (the ideal spot for supreme snorkelling opportunities), secret tunnels, abandoned villages, coves and some of the most unique hidden gems of Albania. This place thanks to its crystalline waters and idyllic landscapes is one of the most beautiful destinations to visit in the Balkan country.
SAFARI IN VJOSA-NARTA PROTECTED LANDSCAPE
If you prefer off roads to sea, don’t miss the opportunity to discover Narta Lagoon, among the wildest destinations along the Albanian coast, just 10-minute drive north of Vlora. This natural gem -an extraordinary ecosystem made of sea, lagoon, marshes, forests and sand dunes- is home to many birds and wild animals. A birdwatchers’ paradise: with professional binoculars and a Trips4fun’s expert guide, you’ll jump in a 4×4 before and fishing boat then, to discover the area, learn about the diverse wildlife and if lucky enough, even spot some flamingos and pelicans closely. After a sea food lunch at Dolphin Restaurant -the place to go to try authentic Vjosa Narta delicacies like fried fish and lagoon eels- Hidrovorri beach and Akerni forest, with enchanting and picturesque roads of sand dunes, huge bunkers and a pine forest, await you. The colors, sights and wild nature here are unforgettable. Albania has been billed “the pearl of the Mediterranean” for good and many reasons, this place included.
