On the Honey Trail you will discover Albania’s centuries-old beekeeping tradition and along the way the cultural richness and diverse nature of the land, which offers such excellent conditions for beekeeping.
At the heart of the Honey Trail are the encounters with local people and their way of life, allowing them to immerse themselves in the culture of Albania.
Compiled by local experts from a socio-ecological point of view, the Honey Trail offers a unique travel experience and at the same time supports beekeepers in rural Albania in setting up sustainable operations. Our offer also includes tailor-made all-inclusive and self-drive tours, beekeeping stays for honey harvest (farm stays) and day trips to beekeepers and beekeepers.
