– Departure time: 08:00
– Pick up from selected hotels in Tirana
– Guided hike along the Zeza Canyon
The Zeza canyon, formed by the river with the same name, winds its way between Kruja and Gamti mountains.
The river has a narrow bed and its canyon has steep slopes. It flows from east to west cutting its way through limestone cliffs. There are some shallow sections where it is even possible to bathe in the clear water. The Zeza canyon is wild and dramatic, as it zigzags between the mountains.
The guide will pick you up at your accommodation for the transfer to the starting point of the hike. You will hike partly on a trail which used to be an important route, connecting the villages behind the mountain to the city of Krujë. It was paved with cobblestones, most of which have been eroded away. There are two bridges along this trail, which testify to the importance of this trail in earlier times.
The trail is sometimes visible and sometimes hides among the lush vegetation. During the hike you will be rewarded with magnificent views of the river and its canyon.
