Stop At:

Known as the Mountain of Good - The wondrous Mount Tomorr has stood proudly at the heart of Albanian folklore and mythology throughout the ages, and become an important place for outdoor adventurers and spiritual pilgrims alike. As with Mount Olympus, Mount Tomorr’s presence in Albanian geography and folklore overshadows that of all other natural wonders of the land. With its imposing height of 2416 metres above sea level, the beauty and grandeur of this mountain has had an immense influence upon the collective imagination of Albanians throughout the ages. Even mentioned in Homer’s Iliad, there is no shortage of mythology and legend surrounding this mighty peak. You’ll see that the journey to Mount Tomorr is packed with adventures, both physical and symbolic. Words cannot begin to describe this mountain’s dominance over the surrounding landscape. Positioned in the centre of a plain without neighbours, the mountain looks over all directions, unobstructed. The city of Berat looks over Tomorr in its east, while Mount Shpirag dominates the scenery in its west. Its craggy peaks, dense forests, abysses, and frequent storms, make this mountain simultaneously attractive and challenging for mountain climbers. In fact, Mount Tomorr has been a focal point for Albanian alpinism for a long time. A Mountain with a Vast History Throughout history, pagan, Christian, and Islamic rituals have all contributed to Mount Tomorr’s status as a holy sanctuary. The deity associated with Mount Tomorr since Illyrian times is called Baba Tomorr (Father Tomorr), the most prominent mythological figure in Albanian folklore. When the English ethnologist Margaret Hasluck climbed the mountain in 1930, she was astonished to find that the prevalent faith among the people centred on Baba Tomorr, much more than on the Holy Bible or the Qur’an. According to history experts, this cult can be traced back to pagan natural cults, wherein supernatural powers were attributed to natural phenomena in order to explain their mysterious wonders.

Duration: 3 hour

Stop At: Bogove Waterfall

The Bogova Waterfall, rising 20 meters above its pool of aquamarine waters, is an exquisite still-untouched spot to get in touch with nature. If you are looking for the exotic side of Albania, the one of the endless natural spectacles, pristine waters and untouched landscapes, Bogova Waterfall is a must! Situated on the left bank of the Osumi valley, this pearl of the Albanian landscape hides behind dense lush forests. Surrounded by rich hues of green, this waterfall’s appeal rests precisely in its isolation from the rest of the world. At a height of 20 meters, the waterfall stands above a pool of crystal clear waters that is 12 meters in depth. The scenery immerses you in a tropical paradise that seems to be entirely untouched. The sheer clarity of the water, the calming sounds of the waterfall and the green landscape that surround this area give you an idea of how the world must have been in its very beginnings. In the hot summer months, the temptation to dive into the refreshing water is great but only the truly courageous make it into its very cold temperatures.
