Day Tour of Ohrid Lake (Albanian side) from Tirana

Day Tour of Ohrid Lake (Albanian side) from Tirana

Situated on the shores of Ohrid Lake, Pogradec is one of the oldest settled civilizations in Albania. As we drive down the elaborated zigzags, we encounter the tremendous scenery offering one of the most picturesque views of Lake Ohrid and the Lin Peninsula. In addition to the enchanting views, we will discover the mosaic of Lin, dating back to 4th-5th centuries A.D. Ohrid lake, of tectonic origin (2 – 4 million years old), is the deepest lake in Balkans and it is under UNESCO protection due to its unique value and being home to 17 species of aquatic animals. Drilon waters form a small lake, surrounded by beautiful greenery that makes the area and the nearby village of Tushemisht a unique oasis of beauty and tranquility. The area is also famous for its culinary wonders, such as the traditional fish dishes, especially the baked speckled trout (Koran in Albanian) as well as the famous pickles.
