“Between heaven and sea”

Himare- Pilur - back via offroad on upper section to Himare)

This trail brings you from Himare up to the traditional mountain village of Pilur, nestling between heaven and earth, or at least sea and mountains. The modern asphalt road takes you south out of Himare, and then a signposted turnoff to the left starts the road up the mountain. Over a mix of broken asphalt and dirt road the climb takes you up to the village of Pilur. Here a scenic view of both mountains and sea, peaceful village life, various sights (Monastery in a small forest, Communist monument) and a bar with the occasional fresh food await you. Once you’re ready to leave Pilur, an alternative road on the upper half back down to Himare follows some great offroad sections.
