Walking Holidays in Albania

Embarking on a walking holiday in Albania is like stepping back in time. The country is dotted with ancient castle ruins, traditional villages, and breathtaking mountain landscapes. The people of Albania are warm and welcoming, always eager to share their stories and offer hospitality.

Embark on an Albanian walking holiday, where you can indulge in homestays and leisurely strolls through the picturesque valleys of Valbona and Thethi. All the while keep your eyes peeled for the majestic Golden Eagles that grace the wild landscapes and set out on a thrilling walk across the rugged terrain of the Valbona Pass. Immerse yourself in the cultural treasures of Kruja and Shkodra and venture into the alpine wonders of Cerem. Discover the enchantment of the tranquil waters of Lake Koman, all while exploring the breathtaking magnificence of Albania's awe-inspiring Alps.

Highlights of Walking in Albania

The Albanian Alps, also known as the Prokletije Mountains, offer some of the most challenging and exhilarating walks in Europe. This range of rugged peaks, deep gorges and crystal-clear rivers will take your breath away.

Walking in the Valbona Valley National Park

One of the most popular walking holidays in Albania is the Valbona Valley National Park. A protected area of natural beauty, the park boasts glistening lakes, lush forests and towering peaks. Home to many species of wildlife, including brown bears, wolves, and rare species of birds, it’s the perfect place to connect with nature.
