We are proud to be partners of VIS ALBANIA, Komuna MALESI E MADHE and COOPERAZIONE ITALIANA in the development of rural tourism in Albania`s extreme north, the “Malesi e Madhe”, the big mountains.
Mountain biking is one form of this rural tourism – in a great area of wild nature & friendly people for you as a rider, and as income & interest for the local population!
We are currently developing 10x trails / tour recommendations in the area, training local youth as future bike guides etc., but already today we have something special for you:
The first 3x tours in the area as FREE GPX-FILES AND TRAIL SHEETS – ready for you to go out there and explore!
Look at what tempts you most, load the file on your gps, and enjoy exploring this marvelous area on your bike – now September and early October are the perfect months!
