1. From Sarandë: Day Trip to Permet with Thermal Pool Visit
Near the border with Greece and North Macedonia, there is a small Albanian city named Permet. This city is famous for its wonderful nature combined with the rich culture. Permet is also known as ‘the city of roses’, which describes the presence of roses and a lot of flowers. It is also known as the ‘city of the river’ since the second largest river crosses the town forming a large canyon. In the Permet day tour, departing from Saranda will be included a relaxing visit to the hot Permet thermal pools. After the spa time, you will dive into the woody paths of the Redhi I Hotovës National Park, to continue the visit to Langarica Canyon, Kelcyra gorge, and some points of historical and artistic interest, such as Ottoman-era bridges (Kati Bridge) and Orthodox monasteries. You will discover the town of Tepelene, famous for the high quality of its cold spring waters. This journey will not be completed without the traditional food that you will be able to enjoy during the day.
