Small Group Tours by 4x4

Our group 4×4 tours are COVID-19 friendly – you and your partner or friend will be safe from the virus in your own Lada Niva, driving in convoy through rural Albania. No off-road driving experience is necessary – these tours are designed for any competent driver. 

What We Do

Scheduled small group tours by 4×4 minivan, private guided tours, self-drive tours, trekking and wild-camping adventures, and more

Cultural + Adventure

Our (anything but) standard small group tours combine culture and off road adventure. Instead of driving from city to city on main roads, we take small mountain tracks, meaning you’ll get to see incredible landscapes and pass through remote villages.

Wild Camping

For more adventurous travellers we offer unique wild camping trips. These can be done by 4×4, on foot, on horse-back or even by kayak or raft. In our view, wild camping is the best way to truly experience Albania – there is nowhere in Europe that feels as wild.

4×4 Self Drive

We began life as a specialist in Albania 4×4 tours, and remain at heart a team of petrol-heads. We can put together private self-drive tours by brand-new Lada Niva 4×4 and get you to parts of Albania that most tour companies won’t even attempt to reach.

Tailor Made

We’re experienced in creating tailor-made tours, from self-drive to special interest. We love tours that combine hotels with home-stays, and can put together unique itineraries travelling through Albania, Kosovo and their neighbours.

In July 2017 we provided a 4×4, route planning advice and ground support for Dutch TV presenter Geraldine Kemper and a crew from top-rated travel show 3 Op Reis. Geraldine’s Balkan road trip from Sarajevo to Tirana was broadcast in Autumn 2017 – and includes epic footage of our favourite hidden corners of Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo and north Albania.


“Drive Albania made our BBC documentary possible – end of story. Without them and their local knowledge we would not have been able to make the film we did. Good reliable vehicles, prompt and efficient service as well as brilliant guides and drivers.” Chris Cottom, Director, BBC2’s The Misadventures of Romesh Ranganathan.


“Instead of covering long distances between places of interest with little to see in between, we ventured, lumbered and sometimes inched up and down the twisting tracks of rural Albania. On both tours the off road driving was a delight, fulfilling my highest expectations and distinguishing this journey from any other I might have chosen.”

Hilary Dennison, who combined our North & South Albania 4×4 Tours 

Drive Albania on YouTube

We’re reluctantly dragging ourselves into the digital age with a video diary. If you’re interested to see the Drive Albania team (usually accompanied by Bubi the Office Dog) explore the wilder areas of Albania and Kosovo in our mostly trusty 4x4s, check out our channel on YouTube.
