Unexplored caves, beach massages and paragliding are among the activites announced for Kala Festival. The debut event at Dhërmi will take over an intimate beach location on the Albanian Riviera from Wednesday, June 20th to Wednesday, June 27th with plenty to do away from the music.
Snorkelling will offer views under the sea of marine life and shipwrecks, while pedalo, kayaks and stand up paddle boards offer alternatives to take to the open sea. Hiking trails will also be open while beach massages, sunset yoga, paddleboard yoga and kanga soundscape (an epic journey of sound, yoga, binaural beats, meditation and massage) will help heal aching limbs.
Excursions further afield will include a tour of 26km-long river gorge Osumi Canyon and a trip to Grama Bay. Tandem paragliding and refting will also be available.
Kala Festival Director Alan Crofton said: “We are incredibly excited to bring Kala Festival to life. Over a year of planning has gone into the festival and all the pieces are now falling into place. The latest announcement is all about having fun and next week we have the hard task of going out there for a week to test out the activities, finalise local restaurant menus and of course test out the cocktails! Be sure to check out the Kala social pages next week for updates on the trip.”
