About
Situated on the shores of Ohrid Lake, Pogradec is one of the oldest settled civilizations in Albania. As we drive down the elaborated zigzags, we encounter the tremendous scenery offering one of the most picturesque views of Lake Ohrid and the Lin Peninsula. In addition to the enchanting views, we will discover the mosaic of Lin, dating back to 4th-5th centuries A.D. Ohrid lake, of tectonic origin (2 – 4 million years old), is the deepest lake in Balkans and it is under UNESCO protection due to its unique value and being home to 17 species of aquatic animals. Drilon waters form a small lake, surrounded by beautiful greenery that makes the area and the nearby village of Tushemisht a unique oasis of beauty and tranquility. The area is also famous for its culinary wonders, such as the traditional fish dishes, especially the baked speckled trout (Koran in Albanian) as well as the famous pickles.

Very scenic trip. The weather was a mix of snow, rain, cold and a little warm at times. The park at Drilon was beautiful and walk around the place was nice. We couldn't see the mosaic at Lin as it was closed. Our guide Mr. Bledi was pleasant, full of smile and ever-obliging for our various photo-stops ! Thanks team Choose Balkans!

We wanted to go on a ''not so typical'' tour, but still visit some interesting places. The Lake of Ohrid is absolutely stunning. Most people visit it from the Macedonian side, but the Albanian side is also great. Lin was also a very interesting place, even though I never heard of it before, and we saw some of Albania's beautiful nature. The tour guide had lots to tell and everything was well arranged. I would recommend this tour for the ones that want to visit some non-touristic places.

Thank you so much for the good memories
