Who we work with - Albania
If it’s the sea you’re after, you can choose from the Adriatic or the Ionian coastlines with views of Corfu available from the latter. Durres is one of Albania’s biggest seaside destinations thanks to incredibly cheap prices and wonderful views.
If you want to explore a UNESCO World Heritage Site, head inland to Berat. Once part of the Byzantine frontier, it became a hugely important part of the Ottoman Empire. There’s an impressive citadel and attractive churches to explore before heading towards Tomorri Mountain National Park. Here you can go skiing or search for endangered animals such as lynx, pine marten, golden eagles, and bears.
Otherwise head up into the Albanian Alps, or Accursed Mountains as they’re known, for stunning vistas and walking trails.

Fly into Tirana Airport for easy access to the whole of Albania. Take a tour of a country that was cut off from the rest of Europe until as recently as 1991 and discover its turbulent history.
Renowned for its hospitality, Tirana is a wonderful city that welcomes tourists with open arms. Explore its cafés and bars or take a stroll around the multi coloured tower blocks and estates.
For an insight into Communist architecture, head to the derelict Piramida near Skanderbeg Square. Originally a museum to the tyrannical dictator Enver Hoxha, it is now a symbol of the regime’s failure. For a more in depth study of Albania’s past, make your way back to the square to the excellent National Historic Museum.
