Albania has climbed up the list of the world’s hottest destinations and interest in this, for most people, unfamiliar country is greater than ever. Time here has stood still. Once you get beyond the capital city, it resembles in many respects what you would find in a photo album from the 1960s with fewer cars and more donkeys. In the village square, men play backgammon watched over by churches and mosques.
Your hosts are three academics, Kristina, Ilir and Aurel, who have all studied history, archeology, biology and chemistry and who have a passion for nature, animals and monuments. They have ridden since they were little and decided to explore the countryside on horseback with their friends. They have developed their rides and for the past five years, they have been taking foreigner visitors with them.
It is always special when someone is passionate about what they do and so what could be better than having three people with the same passion.
