Comprehensive best of Albania cultural and scenic trip

Still emerging from isolation, Albania is a country that is off the main tourist trail, but offers a diverse range of unique attractions that are waiting to be discovered. Experience its stunning natural scenery as we journey from the Adriatic Coast across the White Mountains to the peaceful shores of Lake Ohrid. Along the way you can see villages where time appears to have stood still and the rural lifestyle has gone unchanged for generations. There's also a wealth of historic sites left behind by past civilisations, such as the Illyrian tribes, ancient Greeks, Romans and the Ottoman Expire. Whatever your interest there is something for everyone to discover in Albania.
