Your chance to
Trek amidst the remote and rugged Albanian Alps
At a glance
3 full day walks, 4 half day walks
This fascinating, lesser-known Mediterranean country has a wild and rugged landscape where agricultural life has remained unchanged for decades and UNESCO World Heritage Sites reveal the diverse heritage of a hospitable nation. Our circular route is focussed mainly on the remote north of the country and encompasses the picturesque Theth and Valbonë regions of the Albanian Alps (where some of the best walking in the country can be found), a short visit to Kosovo, and time to discover historic Berat, to name but a few of the highlights. With a local leader throughout and a second leader for many of the walks, we can share their wealth of knowledge about this captivating country.
