Tirana

Albanian adventure sports

Apart from the lovely people, Albania's main attraction is the magnificent mountain scenery. Unfortunately, with bad information, roads and signposting and few travel agents organising trips into these wild places, it's not easy for foreign visitors to get the best out of the country.

Tirana-based Outdoor Albania allows visitors to get in touch with nature, while taking in some culture along the way. They can take individuals or groups on tailor-made trips throughout the country, organising activities such as trekking, mountain biking, rafting, kayaking, mountaineering, paragliding, 4W-driving and more.

Programmes are adapted to the abilities of the participants, all guides are experienced and multi-lingual, and the equipment is of international standards. Even if you're in just Tirana for a short while, they can arrange an active daytrip in the nearby mountains. You can join a daytrip from Tirana and go hiking, river hiking, rafting, kayaking and cave exploring. In winter, activities are limited to snowshoeing and hiking.
