The jeep tour begins with a visit to the historic Lekursi Castle, built in 1537 by the Ottoman Empire in a dominant position above the city of Saranda to protect the entire surrounding region. Today it is a breathtaking place for photos, including beautiful views of Corfu and the Ksamil little islands.
The tour continues between off-road routes and natural landscapes, and under the shadow of ancient olive trees of the Albanian Riviera until we reach our beautiful Secret Beach.
The Secret Beach is one of the most beautiful beaches on the Albanian Riviera, for this reason we will stop at this beautiful wild beach, reachable only with our off-road Jeeps. Here, away from mass tourism, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in the turquoise waters of the Ionian Sea and relax on one of the most fascinating beaches of the Albanian Riviera.
After stopping on the beach, the excursion continues to discover the peninsula of Porto Palermo, the only safe port between Saranda and Vlora. Our guides will reveal the story of its fascinating Castle, home of mysteries, power games and intrigues, was ordered by Ali Pasha Teplena as a gift to his wife Vasilliqui. Climbing to the top of the castle terrace we will admire a splendid panoramic view, perhaps among the most suggestive of the Albanian coast.
The discovery of authentic Albania also proceeds under the gastronomic aspect. The stop for lunch is planned in a very suggestive location where an Albanian family will host us in their home and will make us taste a simple and tasty cuisine based on fish and more. Lunch is optional (it costs only 10 euros including wine and raki ….) which you can pay directly to the family.
After the lunch break, we will leave for Qeparo, an ancient stone village on the Albanian Riviera clinging to the rock and marked by emigration; our guides will take you inside its ancient history: you will explore its narrow alleys and you will be enchanted by the sea view, at a 400m height.
The excursion does not end here; fun and wild nature are waiting for you. Through a pleasant and adventurous off-road route, we will arrive at the Blue Eye National Park in Albania. After the walk in the park we will reach the Blue Eye source, an extraordinary lagoon considered a real monument of nature, which enchants visitors from all over the world with its crystal blue waters.
The tour ends in the afternoon and we return by jeep to Saranda, to take you back to your hotel/apartment.
We guarantee you an unforgettable off-road experience onboard open jeeps guided by our professional guides who will take you to discover the truest Albania.
Our Italian, English and French speaking guides will make this experience even more interesting by sharing with you fascinating stories about Albania’s past.
Get on board! A day of great fun and adventure awaits you to discover Albania as you have never imagined it to be!
