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.

The Inspiration Project: Albania

Our goal for our Adventure 2017 campaign was to give disadvantaged children from all over the world the chance to experience the same adventures as our travellers do. In Albania, we took 30 children from a small orphanage on an Exodus tour of Berat, led by experienced Exodus guides.

A UNESCO World Heritage Site, Berat is affectionately known as the City of a Thousand Windows by Albanians, and it is a key part of the country's history. There’s a beautiful walk through the aromatic pine forests, marked by the striking white shapes of the Ottoman houses perched on the hills, and an imposing 14th-century castle overlooking it all. The citadel contains both Byzantine churches and Ottoman mosques side by side, linked by ancient cobbled streets and – surprisingly – houses where people still live. It’s the dictionary definition of living history, and a chance for the children to learn more about their own culture and identity.
