Feel like leaving and disconnecting from everyday life? We suggest you this itinerary in the south of Albania. Through this trip you will have a total immersion in the typical Mediterranean nature: turquoise blue sea color, small virgin creeks, wild vegetation, overnight stays in tents at the seaside and hiking along the coast. One final invitation: Enjoy these beautiful moments!
Lagoon of Divjaka - Vlora
We will start the day with a visit to the Divjaka lagoon. A very beautiful forest covers a good part of the National Park.
In order to better explore the lagoon we are going to have a nice ride with fishermen's boat (1 hour ride). After the boat ride we will walk in a fairy forest at the edge of the Adriatic Sea which will bring us to observe the nest of Pelicans in the lagoon. After lunch we will leave in the direction of the city of Vlora otherwise called as the city of the flag because it was here that in 1912 Albania proclaimed independence by the Ottomans.
