September 27th, 2021 Coastcamping

Couldn’t enter this area because of a huge building site. Road was blocked by a big truck! But maybe I was jus unlucky!

September 27th, 2021 Last escape

Ok… First of all. I think the whole north western part of Croatia is not really made for overlanders. Today I was searching quite some time to find a place before I head towards the border tomorrow. The area is filled with Hotels, Resorts, Golf Clubs, Amusement Parks etc… and all roads to the coast are blocked or private property. Lots of traffic all over. So my recommendation is to just stay away from here and for motorbikes don’t think about riding the coast streets down to Pula. Was no fun at all… Estern part is Ok though!

But - this being said. Here you can at least cover the night in peace. Road only 4x4.

September 24th, 2021 Camp by the lake

This is a very nice spot - please keep it clean. Went down the little way with my motorbike. One car passed in the evening… After sunset it’s very quiet. Take care about the cat :-)

September 24th, 2021 Guest House Kevser (motorbike friendly)

Nice Guest House with save parking just in front of the house. Payed 25€ for a 3 bed room. So in case you travel in a group might be a good option. Walk down to the city center takes round about 8min. Washing machine can be used. Fast internet. And very friendly owner. Speaks German and English:

September 21st, 2021 Road going up to Privedor.

Entrance fee is 10 KM now… Besides everything as explained before.

September 21st, 2021 Green Park

Payed 10€ for my motorbike and tent. Good spot for a break after or before the border. Hot showers and washing machine (3€). Restaurant is good too.

September 19th, 2021 Guesthouse Mitaj

Probably best place in town for overlanders. (See my other post).

September 18th, 2021 Weirdo Hostel

Well - today was a strange travel day. Since it was raining cats and dogs I decided to spent my last Lekë for an accommodation. Riding with my motorbike was not really funny. At the time of my visit there was three options available and I ended up staying at this place which I kind of regret in the end.

All of them cost 10€ the night and 5€ for breakfast and 5€ for dinner. I don’t know much of the very last place at the end of the road but it was very crowded that time so I kept on searching. The second place (the very first one to the left) was nice and with a huge flat area for camper vans. Also some shady trees. Rooms are everywhere same same - simple bets for up to 5. Only downside there was the room in the second floor and since I didn’t want to carry all my wet stuff up I kept on searching.

Now comes the weird thing. Once I told them at the place I stayed in the end that I am going to pay with my last Lekë (1500 which is even more then 10€ and another 5€, also my last cash, for the dinner) there mood changed quite to the negative. They started a huge discussion about it for minutes. At a certain moment I just didn’t care anymore and decided to take it as it is. I really didn’t see the problem. I spoke with some Albans later and they told me kind of the same story. This time I should have left already. Anyhow - dinner for me was some overcooked pasta and salat and a glass of water. Some other tourists next table had fish and meat and some red wine. When I asked them for a glass of wine they said there is no more ?!? So - this is Not a very albanic mentality but I think for some reason they wanted to cut expenses down because I didn’t give them the good €. Has maybe something to do with the fact that they live closer to a bigger Montenegro city then some other in Albania. The room was ok. Shower and toilet is outside - no hot water, no light. The other one had a bathroom in the house. I will set another marker when I leave the village. So maybe one of you can enjoy a better hospitality. When I payed my 1500L + 5€ they took it if it was poisoned. Also no goodbye… I really didn’t get it…

The road itself is just mindblowing. The village is really nothing special. The view from the valley into the surrounding mountains is nice though. ;-) Try you luck with Lekë and let me know…

Greetings Martin

September 18th, 2021 Eco Garden Hostel (motorbike friendly)

Fred has a very nice little hostel with several rooms. A room for 3 people cost like 20€. He speaks German and English. They are super helpful organising trips around Albania. It’s especially good if you travel by motorbike, since you can park save just next to your room. Small 4x4 should also fit inside the premises. For bigger campervans I wouldn’t really recommend it, since the access road is quite narrow. But anyhow - another guest had his Nissan Patrol parked just in front of the hostel. City center just 5 minutes walk away.

September 16th, 2021 Beautiful place

This place is permanently closed.

September 16th, 2021 Beautiful place

Place is closed now by huge fences… And in my point of view it’s good like this. Too much of an impact - flying rubbish etc… Just a few meters further you can find camping and rooms in a very rural environment. I made it by motorbike but wouldn’t recommend it. Probably easier to start hiking further back.

July 25th, 2021 Casa Dani

Very nice Appartment for up to three persons. Everything available you will need. Kitchen, washing machine etc… Lot of space for parking your vehicle too. Awesome view to the mountains and next city is just 5-10 minutes away. Recommended.

July 22nd, 2021 Euromaster Pellegrino Paolo

Good mechanic to get a tire change done. I ordered my motorbike tires the day I came from the ferry. Two weeks later - after riding around Sicili - got it easy and professionally changed. Payed 230€ for a new set of Annakee Wild which is quite a good deal as well. Recommend!!!

July 21st, 2021 Megalite dell’ Argimusco

Could be a nice natural place - but camping is actually not allowed here. There is a huge sign and parking spot jut at the entrance where the trails trough the rocks start. Unfortunately full of rubbish at the spots…

July 21st, 2021 Refugio Monti Peloritani

Abandoned Refugio inside the forest. Unfortunately home of some cows and the standard flying toilet paper that can be found around places like this. But besides… it has huge benches and tables, fire spots and a some grass spots for camping. View down to Messina can be found at the nearby little church (it’s also in IOverlander) or just along the very adventurous road. 4x4 and off-road motorbikes can make it. Everything bigger I wouldn’t suggest.

July 19th, 2021 Sicily Rooms Enna (motorbike friendly)

Nice hostel very close to the Center of town. Payed 50€ for two nights with a very good breakfast included. Parking though might be a problem for everything bigger then a „normal“ car. There is free parking on the street - but I didn’t see many free slots around. I was also struggling to find my way to the hostel. Try to reach it from the eastern side of town ;-). I was very happy to park my motorbike inside the premises - should be space for +- 4 bikes if necessary. Very friendly staff - no English.

July 8th, 2021 San Lázzaro Agerola camping beata

Stayed here 3 nights - payed 36€ - motorbikes are free. Recommend since there are plenty of shady places. Walk down to Amalfi is possible in 2 hours. The one up the mountains offers spectacular views. Ask the owner of the campsite for maps. They are very friendly. Also the bars and Restaurant offer good an cheap food. Loved this place!!!

July 5th, 2021 Parking ground next to Vesuv

The parking is actually on the side of the street. Not good for motorbikes or tent!!!

July 5th, 2021 Panilanda - simple food Hut…

Found this place by accident while riding to the volcano at night. Has awesome burgers and with a quick bite… loved the experience! Didn’t expect something like this at all at this spot!

July 4th, 2021 Vila ST. Lorenzo Hotel (motorbike friendly)

Stayed here for 5 days. Cost 35€ per night excl. breakfast. 4€ city tax extra per day. It has a parking area for a few cars and some motorbikes. Had a huge bed in a kind of dark room - but for the money it was good value. Bigger cars might not fit so call them in advance. The close area has some very good restaurants and bars that are quite cheap. Next Metro is a 15 Minute walk away. Tram Station like 5 Minutes. Felt very safe here and could enjoy my stay… So recommended! :-)

June 29th, 2021 Artisan Pup with free Wifi

Good pup with WiFi. With some luck you find nearby parking: Passwort = beerlovers
(Has good beer too of course)

June 28th, 2021 rifugio belvedere

This Place is not accessible anymore due to a landslide. I market the place at the end of the street where adventurous travellers can camp just on the path or park one small 4x4. Might be tricky to turnaround though for cars. Super motivated people can cross with very light MX bikes, bicycle or (what I did) by foot… Road wasn’t closed - I didn’t see any sign like the previous entry said…

June 26th, 2021 My Way Bad and Breakfast (motorbike friendly)

Good place to stay (payed 30€) via booking it is a little bit more expensive. Motorbikes can stay inside the gates. Otherwise save parking around the corner. Should be enough space for like 4 GS or likewise. City center is 10 minutes away by bike or just use the bus that holds in front of the house. Michael is also a very nice and helpful. +393284681169 [email protected] (WhatsApp).

Has air condition, coffee, hot showers and fast internet… Just don’t expect the “breakfast” to be very big. It’s more like a morning snack…

October 9th, 2020 Hostel Stelvio

Good and affordable Hostel with big private apartments. Very clean and super friendly host. For motorbikes there is a shelter and garage... Recommended!!!

October 3rd, 2020 Wild campsite with sea views

Place is not so easy to find... Just look for “Calle del Aguador - Hortellano. Just after the intersection turn right and follow the narrow path. I guess small 4x4 will make it too... Mind it’s close to a village and Highway... For a stopover Ok.

October 3rd, 2020 Wild Camp at Ruin

Quiet spot next to an old house - more like a ruin. Nice mountains around. Enough place for all kind of vehicles around.

September 12th, 2020 Wild Cliff

This place is permanently closed.

September 12th, 2020 Wild Cliff

It’s forbidden to drive on the cliff. Fine 250 - 25000€. Big sign just at the entrance.

September 7th, 2020 Casa do Preto

What a good Restaurant. Unfortunately just accessible for travelers with smaller cars or Motorbike. Amazing few to the lake and just crossing the tiny town is worth coming here... Everything bigger then a Defender is not recommended... Enjoy the meal.

September 3rd, 2020 Supernova

Really nice hostel... For motorbikes at „GALP“ just a few meters down the road you find a good parking. Ask the police man around if it’s ok to park there. It’s free!!! It’s always full with other bikes but 1 or 2 should always fit.
Hostel was 13€ a. Iggy in 4 Bed Dormitory.
