Travelers who want to escape the chaos, noise and energy of Albania’s larger cities will find peace and quiet in the picturesque hills of the Dajti Mountains, located a short drive from Tirana.
Fit and intrepid travelers can hike along scenic trails to the top of this 1,613-meter tall mountain. But those who prefer to take in nature in a more leisurely way can still access all this beautiful destination has to offer, thanks to a cable car that provides a fast track option straight to the top. Travelers can look out over epic views that include the Adriatic Sea, the Port of Durres and more.
Taxis to Dajti are available from Tirana for about 15 Euros. Be sure to arrange a pick up time with the driver for an easy return trip.
There is a restaurant that hangs off the mountain top that showcases some of the best views around, but be mindful that the views can come at a steep price.
