Small Group Tours in Albania
Albania is a land where the past never seems far away, where daily life seems intertwined with a sense of age old customs that much of Europe has abandoned. Its mountains are home to some of the most traditional villages on the continent, while its towns are often dominated by centuries old fortresses, a reminder of the diverse array of cultural influences that have left their mark on the country. Our group tours and tailor made holidays to Albania take you to a stunning land dotted with the remains of civilisations long since departed, where East meets West and merges to create something uniquely Albanian. This neglected corner of the Balkans is home to breathtaking old towns, seemingly frozen in time, where Ottoman architecture jostles for space with ancient Roman ruins and picturesque old churches, and its scenery is simply stunning. Now opening its doors to visitors, Albania is revealing its long hidden secrets. Escape the crowds and explore this charming corner of the Balkans.
As a geographical and cultural entity Albania has often been enigmatic and somewhat misunderstood. This ancient land offers something increasingly rare in Europe these days – a glance into a culture that is all its own. Our 9 day small group tour focuses on the cultural and historic aspects of the country but you will also find beautiful pristine beaches and dramatic mountain citadels.
