Albania doesn’t make many top destination lists, which means holidays in Albania can be your little secret. In truth, this small country in the Balkans offers heaps of history, nature and adventure. Its castles and historic villages lend it a magical, storybook-like feel, while its coastline along the Adriatic and Ionian Seas can give you the perfect beach getaway.
Albania has a lot to show you, so put on your walking shoes. If you’re a history buff, tour the historic towns of Butrint, Gjirokaster, Berat and Durres to explore their ancient monuments. If the call of the wild drowns out the whisper of history, take a hike to Lura National Park where you can climb mountains or skip through flower-laden meadows (start working on your daisy chains!).
Pro Tip: Albania was made for castle scavenger hunts, but if you only have time for one castle, make it Berat. A small group of Albanians still live within the walls of this UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Finally, when it’s time for some serious R&R, hit the coastal towns and enjoy the gorgeous beaches and fresh seafood. Don’t try to resist the delicious baklava. Just don’t.
Fly into Tirana International Airport (TIA) in the country’s capital city of Tirana. Right out front, you’ll find taxis ready to whisk you off to your Albania accommodation. Once you finalise your bucket list, you’ll discover that the most popular modes of public transportation are the public buses or the minibuses known as furgons. Take a train ride and enjoy the beautiful vistas along the way as well as beautiful views of rural Albania.
