About this holiday

Head “off the beaten path” for a holiday with a difference and discover the incomparable beauty of Albania. Our tour will take us through stunning mountain and coastal landscapes as we journey through this fascinating country.

Drive through the Blue Eye

We spend our first night in Corfu before a short but stunning cruise across to Agia Saranta in Southern Albania. From here we’ll take a spectacular drive along the Blue Eye National Park to the UNESCO Heritage town of Gjirokaster. Dating back to the Ottomans, this medieval town has a wonderful old quarter with a maze of narrow stone cobbled streets and a Turkish bazaar, perfect for some unusual souvenir spotting!

Albania’s stunning landscapes

We head further inland to the beautiful medieval mountain town of Tepelene gorgeous scenery, inspiration for Lord Byron’s “Mother Albania” poem. Moving on to the coast, we visit beautiful Vlora, with its elegant wide boulevards, and stylish shops and restaurants you could easily be on the Italian Riviera – it’s quite a surprise. Spend some time to just sit back with a coffee and a raki, the local firebrew, and watch the Albanian world go by.

To get a glimpse of Albania’s spectacular interior, where time really has stood still, we’ll head up into the mountains and into the Llogara National Park – the jewel in Albania’s crown. Here we’ll get a real flavour of local life on our visit to a traditional shepherd’s village and enjoy a tasty picnic of local produce.

Our final day in Albania will take us to one of Europe’s best kept secrets, the ancient ruins at Butrint – a UNESCO World Heritage site, thought by many to be one of the finest ancient cities in Europe.
