Join us on a holiday to Albania

Untouched rugged mountains and beautiful beaches. Unspoilt ancient sites and quaint old towns. Albania’s charms are waiting to be discovered.

Albania is one of Europe’s under-the-radar gems. Located on South-eastern Europe’s Balkan Peninsula, it was hidden behind the Iron Curtain for decades. Today, it welcomes curious visitors to its untapped sights.

In the north of Albania, nestled in a mountain-backed landscape of rolling hills, you’ll find the medieval town of Krujë. The village, on the hillside at the foot of the Mount Krujë, offers spectacular views of the landscape below. Once inhabited by the ancient Illyrian tribe of the Albani, Krujë is full of history and ancient traditions which still permeate the village today.

Albania’s national hero, George Castriot Skanderbeg was born in Krujë, but later made the capital, Tirana, his home, and he is still widely celebrated through the city. Spend time in Tirana exploring the sights and sounds of this marvellous place. Marvel at the giant statue of the Lord of Albania, as Skanderbeg is known, and wander through the bustling streets where the evening tradition of the xhiro promenade is enjoyed by both locals and visitors. Stroll through the ancient Ottoman bazaar, with its small boutiques and narrow cobbled streets where you’ll find hand-crafted curios, traditional clothing and antiques.

Away from the capital, you’ll find other treasures. See the Byzantine churches, the Red Mosque and the Onufri National Museum in the UNESCO-listed citadel of Berat, or perhaps take in the Greco-Roman city named for the god Apollo – Apollonia. You might also journey to beautiful Lake Skadar, which straddles the border between Montenegro and Albania. Drive, cycle or walk around the villages by the lake framed by snow-capped peaks. Enjoy the wild, untouched beaches and the beautiful mountains that dot this region, or head to Vlorë, and take in its fascinating museums, spectacular viewpoints and seafront promenade.
