Our hiking tour of Albania was made very easy by Choose Balkans team. We joined the 5 days hiking tour of Southern Albania trekking to Grama Bay, Karaburun Peninsula. The view from Mount Cika was astonishing. Don’t forget to try Kos me Mjalte (Yougurt with honey) stupendous. Highly recommend this tour and their service. Thanks also to the horse provider
