Tours in Albania
Until the collapse of the People’s Socialist Republic of Albania in 1991, few people had glimpsed the country hidden within, and Albania remains far less visited than neighbouring Greece. On Albania trips you’ll discover a wild and rugged landscape, snow-capped mountains, inviting beaches, pretty rural villages, and a genuine subsistence culture and an exceptionally friendly welcome. It’s a dream destination for many adventure travellers.
The country’s quiet roads are perfect for cyclists, and the national parks ideal for walking. Both Roman and Greek civilisations have left their mark here: the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Butrint is located on the picturesque coastline and is one of the country’s most important archaeological sites. According to legend, it is thought to have been a trading city founded in the eighth century BC by people escaping Troy.
