Visit Albania today and discover a fascinating history, unique culture and beautiful landscapes, from mountains to sea.

Located in the western Balkan Peninsula in southeastern Europe, bordering Montenegro, Kosovo, Macedonia and Greece, Albania is truly a unique and authentic country.

While things have changed a lot since the fifty years of communist isolation, this ancient land still offers something increasingly rare in Europe. 

You’ll continue to find beautiful pristine beaches on parts of the Ionian coast, enchanting classical sites like ancient Apolonia, Butrint & Gjirokaster, and dramatic mountain villages such as Voskopoja.

Take an eight-day tour of southern Albania, hitting many charming points of interest, while experiencing a truly amazing country.
