On this daily cruise-excursion to Albania, you're offered the chance to visit ''the land of eagles'' which is yet virgin and unexplored.

Meeting point the New Port of Corfu, at the passenger station, for the necessary passport control. Leaving behind the island of Corfu and following the Albanian coastline, the ship enters, in a short time, the port of Saranda.

On arrival, the most adventurous and active of you will have the opportunity to participate in an optional excursion by coach that is organized by our company. At the archaeological site of Butrinti you will be accompanied by a local tour guide and you're going to find out a lot of the town's history, while you will be admiring its ancient monuments with the panoramic view from a castle that is situated at the top of a hill. When the guided tour ends, the beautiful region of Karahaxh awaits for you. There, you're going to taste delicious dishes from a rich buffet of a traditional restaurant located in the middle of an oasis of plane trees.

Return to the town of Saranda, where there is time for wandering through it, before the departure of the ship for Corfu.
