In 1991, when Albania tentatively opened its doors to the world following half a century of Communism, few could have imagined the smorgasbord of natural wonders contained within its modest borders. Walks in Albania are utterly incredible, from its gorgeous sun-kissed Ionian and Adriatic coastlines to its staggering mountain ranges.

Boasting no less than 15 national parks, you are absolutely spoilt for choice. Experience the rocky coves, gorgeous beaches and sea air of the Albanian Riviera, the last of all of Europe’s coastlines to be discovered. Inland, adventures in wolf-inhabited forests, through monumental gorges and below snow-capped peaks await.

Some of the finest hikes in Albania place you amongst the high passes of the truly spectacular Albanian Alps. Evocatively known as the Cursed Mountains, this is a fairytale landscape where tradition still holds sway in the quaint villages that hide beneath the towering limestone pinnacles.
