Our Albanian holiday offers a wonderful mix of rugged, remote mountain scenery, isolated villages where the welcome is always warm, sites of historic interest and the white gravel beaches of the Ionian Coast, the Albanian Riviera.
Our walks will take in the remote Laberia region, the highlands of the south, and include an ascent of Mt Cika whose outline dominates the skyline throughout our week. There will be time to explore the traditional villages and have a swim in the tranquil turquoise sea. One day will be spent touring the Riviera by bus stopping at places of interest as we move from the sea to the mountains where a hearty meal and an optional sunset walk await us. The holiday overall is high intermediate mixed with some easier days. We will be moving on each day in order to take full advantage of what the area has to offer, staying in a variety of accommodation – seaside hotels, mountain lodges and local village houses. Our last evening will be in Tirana where we will have dinner together. Transfers will be by private bus and all luggage will be transferred so you only need to carry a day pack.
Price includes: 7 nights full board accommodation (single supplement £20 per night – available on 5 nights); all transport to walks. Transfer from Tirana at certain times.
Not included: Flight to Tirana, tips for local guide
