This is a unique self-drive 4x4 adventure through south Albania. Join a convoy of iconic Lada Niva 4x4s as we wind our way from Tirana down to the Riviera, with overnights at the UNESCO cities of Berat and Gjirokastra, a village homestay perched on top of the incredible Nivica Canyon, and the Albanian Riviera.

No previous experience of driving a 4x4 is required, though of course, you do need to be very confident behind the wheel. Due to the nature of the terrain, some routes include precipitous drops and no crash barriers (obviously!).

An English-speaking guide will lead the convoy in a separate vehicle, with communication by walkie-talkie.

“I did this trip with my Father and Brother in one car and it was fantastic. Using Ed's instructions we were able to navigate our way through the Southern mountains of Albania in our 4x4 Lada. The car was amazing and never gave up on us or the challenging routes. We also thought that the roads were the perfect, giving us a range of challenges satisfying all three of us with varying degrees of capability. We ate brilliant food along the way and stayed in great accomodation - the highlight being the evening we spent in a beautiful house with an Albanian couple over-looking the canyon. Even when it rained it just made the trip more exciting and the routes more challenging.”
