Join me for a journey that goes beyond the ordinary sights and experiences that most tourists can find in Albania. My guided tour offers the perfect opportunity to become acquainted with the culture and traditions of my country, and to see for yourself the wild nature of the Ionian land. Just as importantly, I can be your photographer so that every special moment of your adventure is captured.

The journey starts from your accommodation, taking you along the scenic route amongst the mountains to the Blue Eye spring, a famous natural monument. Here, you have the pleasure of exploring the forest and finding the crystal clear source of the Bistrica river.
