hike northern Albania

Volunteers are building 130km of trails around the remote village of Curraj Eperm.

Albania trails

It’s part of a non-profit, student project called the Albanian Challenge (www.albanianchallenge.cz).

The village is cut off from the rest of the world. In fact it takes two days to walk there.

Highlights include caves, waterfalls and peaks  3000m high. Typical Albanian culture (food, architecture and customs) will be of interest to foreign visitors.

The Albanian Challenge was launched after the town lost its bridge in a flood. Increased tourism will help with the rebuilding effort.
