Description

The greenest and the cleanest town in Albania, also known as the “city of roses.” The small town of Permet is famous for its folk music, literature personalities, and the good cooking, especially sweets, the so called ‘gliko’, or preserves. You will be served good wine and raki in Permet and around. The slogan of Permet is “We have everything except the sea”. And that is absolutely true! High mighty mountains surrounding the whole area, the crystal clean waters of Vjosa river’s entire 270km course is wild and untamed and adorned with beautiful canyons, braided river sections, islands and oxbows. Taste the best cuisine and unique dishes, experience old orthodox churches and green fields with sheep roaming around. Rafting in Vjosa river is a fantastic experience full of emotion, wild Albanian nature and a class 3 rafting that is going to provide all adrenaline lovers with the rush they need. Waves up to four feet, strong currents that make the boat stagger and narrow passages where the crystal-clear water is still intemperate which will make this trip unforgettable. In Benja there is a stone bridge arch over a winding stretch of brilliantly blue-green water. Built in the Middle Ages, it has been letting people cross the sulfur-rich river since the days of the Ottoman Empire. Warm water rushes beneath it, providing a relaxing treat for those who visit. Near the bridge, you’ll find the Benja Thermal Baths, born from the geothermal waters near Përmet, Albania. The heated water flows down the river unless it gets diverted into one of the several man-made pools. They’re a splendid spot for a hot soak on a crisp, cool day.
