We spent four days walking the Accursed Mountains in Albania and Kosovo. We were provided with a guide who himself had been born and bred in Albania. Not only was he able to guide us on the walks, but he had a thorough local knowledge of the flairs and fauna, as well as the cultural customs of the local people.
Whilst the walks we did could be quite strenuous, the scenery and the shepherds huts we stayed in made it all worth while. The Albanian hospitality was second to none, and the food some of the best we have ever eaten.
At the end of the holiday we felt a huge sense of achievement and it has certainly raised the bar for future trips. We cannot thank enough Ed and his team from *** - and in particular a big thanks to Nic our guide, Mephmut the horse handler and Dorri the horse (who carried our bags).
