Training Local Guides to Lead Tours on the High Scardus Trail


The continuing development of the High Scardus Trail raises the need for local experts that will safely and successfully guide hikers through the Dibra Region.

With prospect of guiding  future tours on the trail, seven local hiking enthusiasts and amateur guides of Dibra were selected to partake in a three-day training in June 2020. 

The training was organized on behalf of Zbulo! Discover Albania and implemented by two of their guides. Between sharing experiences, important theoretical guidelines and active role-play on hikes around Rabdisht, it was a unique learning opportunity for all parties involved. 

We’re happy to have seven local experts join our team of guides and can’t wait to see them in their element! ⛰️
