Start in Tirana and end in Kruje, the tour "Highlights Of Albania" is a guided cultural, religious and historic sites trip that takes 10 days. You will be traveling through Llogara National Park, Lake Ohrid, Berat and 5 other destinations in Albania and Macedonia. "Highlights Of Albania" is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others. Please see the package includes section for further details.

Albania has a history to rival its better-known (and busier) neighbours and an equally impressive wild landscape. Past civilisations have left their mark here, mainly the Romans and Byzantines, which we see throughout the tour, including at the ancient Greek colony of Butrint and the 13th-century Berat Castle, both Unesco-listed. We also discover modern Albania, visiting the cities of Tirana, Korçë, Durrës and foodie-favourite Përmet. Expect a warm welcome wherever we go.

Interesting insight to Albania
