Albania is a small country with coastlines on the Adriatic and Ionian Seas and an interior dominated by the towering Albanian Alps. It’s located on the Balkan Peninsula in south-eastern Europe. Although increasingly popular with European travellers, it remains largely untouched by mass tourism.

Along its southern coast, the Albanian Riviera is known for its traditional Mediterranean villages, beach resorts and vibrant nightlife. Further inland you will find unspoilt forests, emerald lakes, lush valleys and rugged mountains. All dotted with historic towns inhabited by friendly locals and traces of fascinating ancient cultures. With stunning mountain scenery, a thriving capital city in Tirana and beaches to rival any in the Mediterranean, Albania is fast becoming one of Europe’s most exciting and rewarding off-the-beaten track destinations.
