Llogar National Park is distinguished by an exceptional variety of landscape from the alpine peaks of the Keran mountains covered with snow in winter to the sunny Albanian Ionian Sea. At 1,027 m (3,369 ft), the Llogaraja Pass has stunning landscapes with high mountains overlooking the Albanian Riviera and several islands in the sea. The region is dominated by a Mediterranean climate. This means that summers are hot and winters are usually dry and temperate.
