Our 2020 schedule of cultural and adventure tours

About Our 2020 Albania Group Tours

Our previous Albania group tours have used 4×4 vehicles to access the more remote regions. However, we’re finding that many of our clients aren’t so happy with the bumps and sometimes spartan mountain accommodation! 

So for 2020, we’ve created different categories of Albania group tours, with different levels of comfort –

Cultural Discovery Tours

Guided Self-Drive Adventures

Wild 4×4 Adventures

Our Cultural Discovery Tours will use a minibus with driver and follow the asphalt roads. You’ll overnight at comfortable hotels in cultural centres such as Shkodër, Berat, Gjirokastra and so on. We’ll still provide the relaxed, informal and sociable experience for which we’re known, but these Albania group tours will be much less challenging than in previous years.    

Our Guided Self-Drive Adventures will travel on Albania’s extensive network of dirt tracks. We might overnight at more offbeat locations (sometimes basic, but always with private rooms and en suite facilities). And you’ll get to drive one of our Lada Niva 4x4s – though there will be three spaces in the guide’s vehicle for solo travellers and/or non-drivers who promise not to complain about the bumps.   

Our Wild 4×4 Adventures are designed for people who relish an adventure, and will overnight at much more basic accommodation (including with shared facilities). Wild camping will also be on the agenda. The routes these tours take will be much more challenging, and might require some impromtu road-building along the way. If you’re not prepared to get muddy and rough it at times, these tours certainly aren’t for you!
