Pogradec Tour Reviews

4.8 - Excellent Based on 32 customer reviews
Fantastic! Reviewed Tour: Cycling in Albania
5 - Excellent
“This is a fantastic trip and it definitely exceeded my expectations! The scenery was beautiful and varied, the food was really delicious and so fresh! The cycling was perfect, a good mix of some more relaxed days with a couple of more challenging days and climbs. The people are super friendly and the guides were very helpful!”
Scenic splendour and cycling endeavour Reviewed Tour: Cycling in Albania
5 - Excellent
“This was a splendid trip, made all the better by the staggering beauty of the Albanian mountains and countryside and the excellent company of all on the tour. The cycling was immense, challenging all of us on the tour with the long and arduous climbs and then providing thrills and big smiles as we sped down the long, winding descents with endless views stretching ahead of us. The first half of the trip is in the mountains but then descends to the coast for a day or two before climbing once again for more mountain scenery and finishing with a long descent to the final hotel, once more on the coast. A good variety of scenery and culture that provides an excellent taster of life in present day Albania as the country moves from its communist past and trys to adapt to modern day capitalism and all the challenges that this poses.”
Cycling in Albania: Big Hills, great food! Reviewed Tour: Cycling in Albania
4 - Very Good
“Cycling in Albania is not easy, but is rewarding. The views commanded from some of the many climbs were spectacular. We enjoyed staying in some of the more remote parts of the country and then on to the slightly more commercialised coast. The evenings were great fun, with superb food, and an interesting group of cyclists. Despite the mixed ability almost everyone completed every ride including the final climb over Llogara pass.”
A trip worth taking Reviewed Tour: Cycling in Albania
4 - Very Good
“Beautiful scenery, interesting country, real contrast between the mountainous interior and scenic coastline, lovely food, great weather and lovely friendly people - both locals and in our group. This was definitely a trip worth taking. Cycling was good and like many other reviewers,we thought this was more challenging than its current grading. We couldn't believe how little we spent over the week - though to be honest there wasn't much to buy, other than the essentials.”

“A wonderful trip to an interesting country that few of us know much about. The cycling was - well, I think challenging is the word for the first and last day - certainly at the upper end of "moderate" if not beyond moderate, and that would include the opinion of the very experienced cyclists in the group - but don't let that put you off, as my wife and I, who cycle maybe 10 miles a week at the most, all on the flat, coped with the very mountainous terrain and significant distances. Food was great, if a bit monotonous (and good for non-meat eaters), accommodation varied from a little basic (but perfectly clean and acceptable) in the more rural areas, to fairly good in other areas. Roads were a bit mixed, with quite a lot of areas of potholes and uneven surfaces; traffic was very light and very respectful of cyclists; people were very friendly (although there is not much people-to-people contact), and the landscape was beautiful”
