On the Balkan Peninsula in southern Europe, Albania borders the Adriatic Sea along its entire east coast and the northeast coast of the Ionian Sea. The country shares its borders with numerous countries such as Macedonia, Montenegro, Greece or Kosovo. Its mild coastal climate, wild landscapes and long-unexplored cultural wealth have contributed to Albania's popularity in recent years. Albania is also known as 'the last secret of Europe'. An unknown destination that little by little has been opening up to the world and whose inhabitants are delighted to receive with open arms. Despite being a small country, its variety of landscapes is formidable: mountains, lakes that go into neighboring countries, the beaches of the Adriatic that are almost virgin along the coastline and the inland cities invite travelers to a beautiful journey back in time.
In the Dinaric Alps, we will walk through the isolated valleys of Theth and Valbona, a region never conquered by its invaders discovering remote mountains and valleys, in a multicultural area inhabited by Albanians and Slavs. We will experience the traditional life and the true hospitality of its people. In addition to going up and down mountains, you can also explore its interior with the various speleological excursions that show the treasures of the most incredible caves and grottos in Albania, a clear example of this is the Blue Eye (Syri Kalter) a magical spring of water that hypnotizes.
We have designed a 5-day itinerary that takes in the highlights of Albania’s historical and cultural heritage, including: UNESCO World Heritage sites; Ancient Greek and Roman ruins; key Communist locations; fascinating historical towns; medieval castles; picturesque villages; Orthodox churches and Muslim mosques. This trip is also a great opportunity to sample Albania’s varied regional cuisines, meet local people and enjoy Albania’s incredible scenery!!
