Albania is perhaps one of the last great off-the-beaten-track places to be found for trekking in Europe. The scenery of Albania is simply stunning and the highlander locals are friendly and very hospitable. Sometimes for genuine travel experiences you have to go to far-flung places like the Himalayas, however trekking in Albania is a true revelation.

Discover More About Albania

Our walks in Albania take place in the rugged, undiscovered Accursed Mountains, the magnificent national parks of Thethi and Llogara and along the Albanian Riviera. Enjoy Albanian highlander hospitality, explore ancient ruins at Butrint and Gjirokastra and discover Shkodra, the oldest and largest city in northern Albania.

Follow a coastal trail along the Albanian Riviera in the footsteps of Lord Byron, learn about Albania’s history at the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Butrint and Gjirokastra, or head into the almost impenetrable Accursed Mountains. You can also combine the most stunning parts of Albania and Montenegro in a single trip – trek among glacial valleys and over spectacular ridges and passes.

Albania is a challenging walking destination and a good level of fitness and stamina is required. The walks are in demanding mountainous terrain, through forests and along coastal paths with varying conditions underfoot. Accommodation is simple and comfortable, with the opportunity to stay with Albanian highlander families in their remote village guesthouses.

The best time of year to visit Albania is from June to September, as the daytime temperatures will be warm, the high passes accessible and the countryside at its most beautiful.
