Uncover Albania on a unique tailor-made holiday

  • Immersive local experiences

  • Hand-picked & locally-owned hotels

  • 24/7 in-destination support

One of the fewer European destinations still untouched by the mass tourism, Albania instantly wins you over with its spectacular nature, fortress-like old towns and warmth of the local people. The food is simple but oh so delicious, the wine is cheap and aplenty, and there’s no shortage of activities whether you’re a seasoned hiker, a renowned foodie or an acclaimed beach bum.

Our Albania experts are here to help you choose the places and experiences that fit your bill and show off the best of Albania, from safari-style glamping in the mountains, to kayaking over mirror-like turquoise lakes, to dipping into North Macedonia for a day or spending the evening cooking local delicacies with a local family.

“Albania is one of Europe’s last remaining “hidden gems”, although it’s not hard to see why it’s slowly growing in popularity. Albania has stolen my heart from the very first encounter, and ever since my first visited I’ve been urging everyone I know to visit this incredible country. From the incredible mountains in the north, to the stunning beaches along the Riviera and all the fascinating history in between, it’s a great option for those looking for a unique adventure without flying long-haul!”
