Day 1: 

“Mother Theresa” International Airport – The coastal village of Jale

Once you have met Albania Adventure at “Mother Theresa” International Airport, you are about to start the vibrant Rock Climbing experience. We will be headed towards the coastal village of Jala, which is situated in the southern coast of Albania.

We will be accommodated at a hotel-restaurant by the sea.

Breakfast and dinner will be served at the same restaurant while lunch will be packed.

Day 2: 

Canyon and Beach of Gjipea

More than 70 climbing itineraries have been accomplished by Albania Adventure guides in this area. 

Gjipe beach is the spot in which all the rock climbing experiences are accomplished in southern Albania.  By using Albania Adventure 4x4 vehicles we leave in the direction of this gem of Albanian coastline and drive through an almost extreme off road segment, which makes the use of 4x4 vehicles a necessity.

“Garten Eden” is the first sector to be climbed once having reached Gjipe beach and prepared our personal equipment.  Apart from the electrifying rock climbing experience, it is impossible not to be dazzled by the magnificent scenery of Gjipe bay in this sector when reaching the peak.

Considered as a pearl of Albanian Riviera, we will have lunch on the beach which has a wild, simple and kind of alternative atmosphere, clear emerald water and a majestic staging, nestled among the rocky cliffs whose color ranges from red to grey and white, dotted with the green of the shrubs.

Return to Jala bay in the afternoon

Day 3: 

Canyon and Beach of Gjipea

Gjipe continues to be our destination the next day. We reach Gjipe by using 4x4 vehicles. Climbing “Pfeiler” sector, in which a 7a+ itinerary can be found, is a challenging escapade. Sunbathing in this segment is also another option as it is almost totally exposed to the sunrays before noon. It is worth mentioning here that this sector has been called “Hyperventilator” as it is also windswept all the time.  

“Rote Wand” is the other sector to be followed after enjoying lunch and relaxation. Another itinerary called “Che Vita” is also found here. At an altitude of 83 m above sea level the panorama of  Gjipe bay is spectacular.

Day 4: 

Canyon and Beach of Gjipea

You will feel  adrenaline running through the veins while climbing “Ladi” sector with more than 15 climbing itineraries accomplished, at a difficulty level 5b-7a+. Fantastic photos of Gjipe canyon are possible to be taken once reaching a “balcony” in this sector to carry on with our challenge.

Day 5: 

Canyon and Beach of Gjipea

Proceeding with our climbing adventure, this day is definitely going to be different. In the morning canyoning thrills will be experienced along Gjipe canyon. This experience totally depends on the season you decide to visit Albania. To fully enjoy and accomplish this adventure the most suitable seasons are spring and autumn  because it is very watery in winter and in the summer it is very dry.

This adventure will last four hours on average. We will be enjoying lunch on the canyon breeze. In the afternoon we will get pleasure from the beach and the crystal blue sea.

 

Day 6: 

Canyon and Beach of Gjipea

This day’s rock climbing is located in “Rio” sector. Positioned in the canyon’s interior part, this sector will be climbed in the shadow the entire day.

Because new itineraries are added every year in this sector, we will be having more than 10 of them here, from 5c to 7a difficulty level.

Day 7: 

Canyon and Bay of Gjipea Rock Climbing this day will be really different from other days, as it will be passed in the sector "Mare", a sector with 9 routes, which are not more than 3 m away from the sea waves. The height of these routes is from 8 to 18 m. The position of this sector makes it different from the other ones and really impressive too.

Day 8: 

Jala coastal village – “Mother Theresa” International Airport.

Depending on your flight timetable, we leave the coastal village of Jala towards “Mother Theresa” airport.
