Gjirokaster XC is an itinerary of 20 km. With our bikes we are going to cross grasslands, through villages of Nepravisht, Drino, Libohova and Bulo. The route ends in an old bridge, which dates from the Ottoman period, 1km away from the city center.
This ride is fairly flat without any sharp climbs as we head for one of Albania’s most scenic destinations – the ‘City of 1000 Steps’, Gjirokaster. This UNESCO World Heritage site city clings to the slope of Gjere mountain above the valley of the Drinos river. We are going to explore a green side of UNESCO World Heritage site.
This day trip starts and ends in Saranda
