Albania Self Drive Tours 2019

We can provide brand-new Lada Niva 4x4s for Albania self drive tours, or modern road cars if you value comfort over adventure!

Only a fool would rush through Albania. This mountainous little country is tricky to get around, and could have been designed for slow travel. By far the best way to discover it is by a leisurely self-drive tour. With your own vehicle, preferably a 4×4, you’ll be able to get well off the beaten track and take the road less travelled as you meander from place to place.

We specialise in designing tailor-made road trips through Albania and the western Balkans, and have created numerous self-drive tours incorporating multiple countries, running as far south as Thessaloniki, as far north as Zagreb, and as far east as Sofia (we’re based in Tirana, so if you go more than a few kilometres west you’ll end up in the Adriatic). We’ve even designed Balkan road trips for TV shows, including a five-part series exploring Bosnia, Montenegro, Kosovo and Albania for Holland’s 3 Op Reis, presented by Geraldine Kemper (watch the finalé, at Albania’s beautiful Cape Rodonit, here).

Our 2019 4×4 Vehicles

We have a small number of brand-new three-door Lada Niva 4x4s (1.7-litre petrol / benzine), fitted with air-conditioning and stereos with USB connection. These iconic little cars are permanent four-wheel drive, with low range gearbox and diff lock. They go quite literally anywhere and are ideal for Albanian road conditions. Due to their small size, we recommend them for couples looking for an adventurous self-drive experience – there is very little leg room in the rear!

We also have one brand-new 5-door Lada Niva 4×4, again with AC and stereo, and also a suspension lift and mud tyres. There is plenty of space in the rear, so it’s ideal for a family of four, or four friends who want to get well off the beaten track.

Road Cars

 

We recognise that not everyone wants to be bumped around on a dirt track in a Lada Niva, so if you’re looking for a more civilised self-drive tour sticking to good asphalt roads please get in touch letting us know how many of you will be travelling. We’ll be able to supply a good road car, up to 8+1 in capacity (for more passengers you’ll need a special licence).
