The second edition of SOF took place in the south-coastal village of Vuno, unique for its stylish architecture, urbanization, history and tradition. This second edition was fantastic for all the participants and it resulted a success too, up to 6.000 people visited the festival.
The last weekend of April was concluded the second edition of South Outdoor Festival, hosted this year in Vuno, Himare in Albania. It is the first of its kind encapsulating many activities at once, starting from ground activities: hiking, climbing, jeep safari, canyoning, yoga; water activities: stand up paddle, diving, kayak, as well as paragliding. Apart from participating in the sports activities, for the attenders was the perfect timing for exploring the Southern Coast, by visiting the Himara villages, indulging in the local mediterranean cuisine, experiencing the culture as well as listening to the traditional singing of the polyphonic singers. Vuno is one of the northernmost sea-facing villages in Himara Province, and is often named as “the mountain ridge acropolis”. Cut by the national road, above it the village disperses on the hillside, with pathways and arched passages linking the stacks of houses, while below, it expands and entwines with the cascading landscape seeming to join the seaside below. Here the architecture is unique, more noticeably the Tower of Shane Koka, and the dwelling of Odise Kasneci with traditional stone and woodwork.
