Mussel Tour

Food in Ksamil

The huge brackish Butrint lagoon is famed for its mussels, and fascinating 2½-hour tours by traditional boat will show you how the mussels are collected and cleaned. You then sail to the lagoon shore, where your haul is cooked up and served with local wine and homemade bread. Tours run in summer only; phone to reserve a place in advance.

In winter occasional orange-harvesting tours are available.
