'Via Egnatia' was a road constructed by the Romans in the 2nd century BC. It crossed Illyricum, Macedonia, and Thrace, running through territory that is now part of modern Albania, North Macedonia, Greece, and European Turkey. We start our walk by crossing the Shkumbin River via Kamara Bridge, a cobblestone ottoman bridge built in 1715, and continue uphill to reach Via Egnatia. The walk is considered moderate, with approximately 500 m elevation, 12 km total length for a duration of approx. 5 - 6 hours depending on the group & breaks. The first part of the day we'll be mostly in the shade so you might need a windbreaker.
Technical Info: This walk is considered moderate, with 500 m of elevation, 12 km total length of the trail, and a duration of approximately 5-6 hours. Travel time to head of the trail is 1 hour (one way). <
