Kruja hiking tour - private: Your day starts with the transfer from Durres to Kruja for a 1 hour drive where the trail starts.
The day starts in the morning with a hike up to Kruja mountain. There are amazing views towards the town, Albanian sea shore and the mountains of Qafshtama National Park. On the top of the mountain there is a Bektashi (a Muslim religious sect) Temple very interesting to visit. This temple was created in 13th century by the Sari Saltik semi-legendary Turkish dervish, venerated as a saint by the Bektashi in the Balkans and parts of Middle East. The bonus of the hike up to the mountain hasn’t finished yet. At the temple there are always people waiting for you to come and they invite you for a coffee and ashure (a bektashi traditional desert maid by wheat) at their fireplace. They are very happy to have guests and share some interesting stories of the place.
Once made our way down through the same trail, you will be given free time in the old bazaar of Kruja for shopping or just to relax with the locals before being transferred back through the same way towards Durres city.
