Immerse yourself in this previously isolated country by bike over 8 days. Some say that visiting Albania is as close as you’ll get to travelling back in time. It wasn’t until the collapse of the People’s Socialist Republic of Albania in 1991 that the world got its first glimpse of the country within. Huge snow-capped mountains, inviting beaches, rural villages, a genuine subsistence culture and an exceptionally friendly welcome are what you will find here.

You will cycle through the very best of Europe’s beautiful unknown, beginning the tour on the Macedonia border, biking towards the ancient town of Gjirokastra passing soaring peaks and lush green valleys. From here, you'll begin the descent to the Albanian Riviera, passing Unesco-listed Butrint and Llogara National Park, before relaxing by the sea at a hotel in Vlorë.

Cycle from mountain plateaux to the Albanian Riviera exploring fishing villages, national parks and thermal springs along the way.  This trip is a road ride on paved terrain where some sections are in poor condition with potholes and some unsurfaced areas. The terrain is undulating with some long, gradual climbs. The optional climb on Day 7 (3,422ft/1,043m) is the most challenging, although there is always the option of the support vehicle to get you up to the pass. The operator aims to use quiet roads where possible, although on one occasion there is a need to pass busy sections to reach quiet roads beyond.
