Last year, we had the pleasure to welcome the Armbruster Beekeeping School with a group on a tour to the South of Albania. We are thrilled to announce that they will be back next year! The travel dates are from August, 29 - September, 6 2020 and planning of the itinerary is in full swing.

This time, the journey will take the group to the North of Albania: We will visit beekeepers in Shkodra, Lezha, Puka and Tropoja. The chestnut massif in the mountainous North is the largest of the Balkans, and the deliciously intense Chestnut Honey from Tropoja has been recognized last year as a unique Albanian trademark. Along the way, we go birdwatching on the Lake Shkodra, get an insight into Albania's weaving tradition in a small village close to Montenegro, enjoy one of the world's most beatiful ferry rides on Lake Koman, get to know the country's Slow-Food movement, go hiking in Albania's first UNESCO World Natural Heritage Sight, visit Vitor Shahinaj in Puka for a taste of the traditional Çiftelia and trace the Illyrian history on the island of Shurdhah, to name just a few of the destinations during the trip.

Each year in March, the ITB, the world's leading travel trade show, takes place in Berlin. Countries, regions, tour operators, travel agencies and many more present everything travel related. This year, we were very excited to have the opportunity to participate and present our Honey Trail at the ITB.

Thank you to everyone who visited us at the Albania stand and the stand of the RCC Western Balkans project! We were very happy about the interest in Albania as a travel destination and the Honey Trail in particular, as well as the many interesting conversations with both travelers and colleagues, and we took home a lot of new contacts and insights.
