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.
