Camper Cultural Tour "Albania, Macedonia, Greece 2018" from 3rd to 24th of April 2018

Dear Caravan and Mobile Home Friends and Balkan lovers, as already announced in different programs, the part wise guided tour "Albania-Macedonia-Greece 2018" across the Balkans is part of the project concept "long-term travel and wintering in the South".

As you can see from the attached program, the itinerary through the countries of Albania, Macedonia and Greece leads along many testimonies from the most diverse cultures that once shaped this region. A variety of ancient places and towns as well as natural landscapes will inspire you.

The special feature of our trips is the combination of cultural impressions accompanied with extensive landscape experiences and relaxing coexistence. This includes hiking, cycling and picnics in selected places, where we enjoy the landscape, tranquility and the special quality of the place. Traveling also means facing up to the questions of the present, perceiving the current political and social situation of the area visited and immersing oneself in the recent past, so that the picture of a region rounds off. However, traveling also means meeting people, communicating with them and gaining impressions of life in a distant land. There will be time and possibility enjoying that.

Who does not know us yet: We are a Turkish-German team with more than 10 years of life and travel experience on the Balkans, on Cyprus and in Turkey, and work, as part of the cultural project "Culture along the Roman Road System", to develop the concept of year-round tourism and wintering with introductory or subsequent sightseeing tours and partly guided tours across the Balkans. All named locations have already been approached several times with our own vehicle, all tours have been hiked several times, so that you can be disposed of outstanding knowledge. Locally there are also German or/and English speaking hiking guides available.

The offered tours in particular serve to get to know foreign cultures by involving the local population to their advantage for the smooth development of travel tourism - all income from the part wise-guided tour directly flows into the project work!
