In its south and west Tirana is surrounded by hills that form a green belt around the city. These hills are the perfect place for mountain biking, and are also the main destination of the first day of this travel. After a short break we will pick you up at the hotel and drive you to the south of the city. On the edge of the park with the lake of Tirana we will start our bike trip. Today's trip is a preparatory and introductory one. At the starting point where you will get the bikes, your bike guide will be waiting to welcome you. We will ride through the Selita Hills up to a monument, right on the top at 330 m above sea level. After a short break we’ll bike downhill in the direction of Picalla - Stërmas - Sauk.
