ALBANIA - undiscovered beauty in Europe

Before we started our trip everyone asked us why do you go to Albania?
After returning home it's our mission to explain why!
In our opinion this country is still undiscovered by tourists and one of the last spots in Europe where you can experience an original life with a very warm welcome!
We traveled through Albania in October and still had 28°C and sunshine for ten days.

48 Hours in Albania 2019: Insane 50km Theth to Valbone Hike from Shkoder

We had no idea what to expect in Albania, and to be totally honest, Anne planned this entire trip as a surprise and Jeff had zero idea where they were going until literally the moment they landed in Tirana.

Hiking the amazing Peaks of the Balkans trails, the hiking in Albania is absolutely stunning and spoiled my over tourism of anykind.

We visited the amazing blue eye watering hole for a swim and hiked over 50km around Theth and across the ridge to Valbone - one of the most stunning hikes we have ever done.

We didn't know much about Albania before we landed in Tirana, but we'll never forget it now - one of our most adventurous and surprising weekend adventures yet!

Albania may have a sordid past, but it will be one of the most popular hiking and adventure travel destinations in the coming years, we promise, so go now before it gets too busy!

While you may only know Albania for their stunning beaches in the south or as the bad guys in many movies, it is so, so much more and somewhere to be added to your bucket list immediately!

Enjoy beautiful Albania like we did!

In this travel guide, we visited Shkoder, Rozafa Castel, and Tirana.

The country was included to the Lonely Planet’s Best In Travel List for Value for 2019 with the guide summarising: “Albania remains a destination where you can hike amid beautiful mountain scenery, stay in tiny and timeless villages and explore the buzzy capital Tirana for far less than pretty much anywhere else in Europe.”

We would definitely go back again to explore picturesque towns in southern Albania and relax in one of the beautiful beaches.

Please feel free to reach out to us if you need any travel tips. We will soon release a travel blog with more detailed information.

Welcome to Albania
Closed to outsiders for much of the 20th century, Albania has long been Mediterranean Europe's enigma. Until fairly recently its rumpled mountains, fortress towns and sparkling beaches were merely a rumour on most travel maps. But, with the end of a particularly brutal strain of communism in 1991, Albania tentatively swung open its gates. The first curious tourists to arrive discovered a land where ancient codes of conduct still held sway and where the wind whistled through the shattered remnants of half-forgotten ancient Greek and Roman sites. A quarter of a century after throwing off the shackles of communism, Albania's stunning mountain scenery, crumbling castles, boisterous capital and dreamy beaches rivalling any in the Mediterranean continue to enchant. But hurry here, because as word gets out about what Albania is hiding, the still-tiny trickle of tourists threatens to become a flood.
