With a huge variety of landscapes and exceptionally friendly people, cycling in Albania is one of the best ways to truly get to know this nation’s culture and geography. Mountainous with a long Mediterranean coastline, you can expect epic views, challenging climbs, fantastical mountain valleys and sweeping sea panoramas. Pedal along quiet roads through black pine forests to historical fishing villages and pause for lunch – the food is outstanding. Whether you’re after day rides or week-long bike adventures, there are cycle routes in Albania’s wonderful landscapes that will capture your heart. 


In the far south, pedal to the seaside town of Sarandë with its blue sea and mountain backdrop. In the east, ride along the shores of Lake Ohrid and Pogradec, and look across to Greece on the other side. In the west, enjoy flatter terrain along the stunning coast to Divjakë-Karavasta National Park with its myriad bird watching opportunities. It’s cooler in the north as you take on higher mountains and find utter peace. Wherever you go, you’ll be met with hearty meals and plenty of local knowledge.
