Adventure Albania enables Albania’s exploration through the following activities:
An activity suitable for underwater world lovers. Seabed exploration is made possible thanks to the modern equipment our agency provides. This experience is definitely going to be memorable. Numerous caves or shipwrecks, found along the Albanian coast, offer a lot in terms of underwater exploration. Our diving instructors, who will always accompany you, will make this experience possible even if you are a beginner diver. It is almost impossible to leave Albania without diving at least once. You will always want to practice Scuba Diving once you try it.
An amazing way for sea and lake exploration in Albania is by kayak. Paddling by the force of your arms and at the pace that you like, always led by Albania Adventure professional kayak guides, you will be able to explore beaches, bays and caves which are impossible to be reached by land. The two – seat professional kayaks are ideal for sea exploration and are equipped with spacious barrels, 50 lt, to store food and the necessary equipment for this activity.
Stand Up Paddle Monster
Stand up Paddle Monster is a 16ft-giant-inflatable board that can float up to 8 people, all you have to do is stand up, paddle and have a lot of fun! Perfect for team building or grab a group of friends and get ready for some big laughs! Paddle into the waves or explore our stunning coastline, caves and virgin beaches. No matter whether you are an experienced water person or a beginner, this guarantees great times and lasting memories.
Rock climbing is a recent sport in Albania which is performed in steep slopes. Ropes and safety equipment are required since a perfect combination of force and technique is needed. Gjipe is a place found in southern Albania. Rock climbing and the spectacular landscape can be enjoyed simultaneously here. The beach and canyon of Gjipe are situated between the beaches of Dhermi and Jala. In cooperation with Globo Alpin, Albania Adventure has created more than 70 rock climbing itineraries. It is a tourist attraction frequented by climbers from all around the world nowadays.
A relatively long route activity, varying from 3 to 15 days. The days start early in the morning and finish in the late afternoon. From the very first day till the last one, the only contact is with nature. The Alps and highlands are the appropriate places for trekking purposes. The group always sleeps in tents while trekking. Food is also prepared in the camping tents.
First thing in the mornings is to dismantle the tents, load them on mules in order to be set up again in the evening when we reach the destination specified in advance. During trekking we go to no restaurants or hotels. This activity is suitable only for people who are easily adapted to nature and are able to cooperate and live in group.
Our agency possesses all the necessary camping equipment and organizes tours for a minimum of one or two participants and a maximum of 150 participants. It is worth mentioning here the excellent experience of the worldwide known company Salewa, which led this experience for its staff.
In order to enjoy the trekking adventure to the maximum, the ideal number of participants would be 8-12. Trekking is one of the most interesting ways to explore Albania and be in contact with nature.
Consisting in pursuing paths which reach the mountain peaks, hiking is an activity practiced in the Albanian Alps and high mountains. Hiking duration varies from 1 to 12 days. We are always accommodated in hotels or guesthouses during this activity where breakfast and dinner are served, meanwhile lunch is taken away, certainly something practical.
Hiking differs from trekking in terms of accommodation. During hiking, hiking adventurers are every night accommodated at a hotel or a guesthouse where food is always provided. While trekking, sleeping tents are set up, food is preserved in bags and is prepared by the group in camping surroundings.
Furthermore, to get closer to the mountain climbing tracks, 4x4 vehicles are used during hiking, while on trekking mules or horses are used for movement purposes - including here kitchen equipment, food and all the needed camping materials. Hiking requires good physical preparation.
Snowshoeing is the perfect way for walking over the snow and exploring forests and hills in Albania in winter. Previous experience is not required, but this is the perfect season to enjoy the company of family members and/or friends. Wonderful snowy sights will undoubtedly remain for a long time in your memory.
Ski touring is a relatively new sport practiced in Albania during winter season. The last European mountains suitable for ski touring are found in Albania, probably not reached by skiers yet. This virgin mountainous territory means being on constant discovery and adventure trip and at the same time living an experience beyond imagination.
Experience and technical preparation are essential so as to go ski touring in Albania. You should also be flexible and responsible.
To us it is a passion more than a sport. Albania offers one of the most perfect territories in the Balkans to perform this sport. The magnificent views change continuously within a few-hour-drive. By 4x4 motor vehicles, we explore roads which can hardly be called as such. These vehicles are modified to be driven in rough terrain, which are often too extreme. This adventure runs through fields, rivers and mountains which have not been stepped for decades, probably. Our Off Road adventure guides, who will accompany you in this adventure, have all participated in international competitions organized by Rally Albania since its genesis in Albania. They are winners of more than 10 first prizes, second and third as well.
If you choose to explore Albania by Off Road adventure, we will make it possible for you, either as a passenger or as a driver of 4x4 vehicles.
Cycling experience in unforgettable in Albania because you are very close to nature and rural inhabitants. The track passes through roads that wind through mountains and forests. We will be cycling along rivers and will be accompanied by their marvelous sounds. The stunning views of south coastline will be part of this activity. We will have the possibility to visit ancient cities, small villages, scenic natural parks and also World Heritage Sites declared as such by UNESCO.
Our tour operator specializes in organizing cultural tours so that visitors in our country are offered the opportunity to know the Albanian historical and cultural heritage. When visiting the numerous archaeological and historical sites of Albania, visitors often have a feeling of going back in time. Ancient ruins and cities like legendary castles, Paleo-Christian churches, Byzantine monasteries and medieval mosques are protected by UNESCO nowadays. These antique sites are distinguishable features of Albanian history, one of the ancient countries in the Mediterranean.
In case you decide to actively spend your holidays the ideal choice would be the Multi Activity Tour. If such an itinerary is your choice, it is going to be beneficial because all the above mentioned activities are included. All you need to do is to choose the season you want to visit and explore together the Albanian natural beauty.
