Starting in Tirana and ending in Berat, the "Walking In Albania" trip is a guided trekking tour that takes 8 days. You will travel through Valbone, Kruje and Berat in Albania. "Walking In Albania" is a small group trip which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

This fascinating, lesser-known Mediterranean country has a pristine, rugged and wild landscape waiting to be discovered. It wasn't until the collapse of the People's Socialist Republic of Albania in 1991 that the world got its first glimpse of the country within. Our trek is focussed in the remote Albanian Alps in the north, where ancient blood feuds and folklore mark its past. We explore the remote regions of Theth and Valbonë on foot, where Agricultural life has remained unchanged for centuries. We then have time to explore the historic towns of Berat and Krujë and delve into the captivating history of this hospitable country.

Exodus Tailormade Southern Albania
“I felt we spent too much time in the bus and not enough time walking and exploring. Sometimes we didn't know where we were going because our guide had only told the people at the front of the group. It would help if the guide said where we were and whether we would need walking boots or swimsuits etc. Otherwise it was an excellent trip - we saw a lot of southern Albania.”

“My advice is to visit Albania soon before everyone else catches on! At the moment it feels relatively tourist free and undiscovered to those who like an adventure.”
