Full description
Albania is known for its Mediterranean climate and biodiversity. In this small country, you will find mountains, rivers, greenery, and both underground and underwater caves. Spanning 1,500 meters, Pirogoshi Cave is one of the largest caves in Albania. It is located near Çorovodë. After departing at 8:30 AM from Berat, you will briefly stop at Poliçan. This small village was built in the 1860s by the Communist government as an industrial town for the production of weapons and munitions. Then you will go to Skrapar and walk around the beautiful mountainous district for about 20 minutes. Upon arriving at the Pirogoshi Cave, prepare to experience a spectacular transition into a mystical world full of colors and exciting sounds. Beautiful natural phenomena fill the inside of the cave: stalactites, stalagmites, waterfalls, ponds, hidden passages, and bats. This area is also home to Osumi Canyon, one of the most outstanding natural attractions of Albania. Its edges have an unusual ecosystem that preserves the greenery on both sides of the gorge year-round. Mediterranean bushes like heath and briar flourish along with rich flora and fauna.
