Albania, this small country located in the Balkan peninsula, has gone a long way after being isolated for almost five decades due to its communist regime. Now, Albania is finally taking its well-deserved spot on the global map of tourism.
The coastline kissed by the Adriatic and the Ionian Sea, mountainous north, and affordability are just some of the main reasons why Albania is becoming the getaway for both passive vacationers and adventure seekers. A place to be for those who fancy nice and quiet holidays, offering a wide range of options in luxurious resorts by the sandy beaches – and a paradise for adventure seekers. Hiking trails of any category that take you to waterfalls and natural springs, mountain biking, paragliding, rafting and exploring in the canyons, and off-road tours are just a few of the activities that will shake your adrenaline.
But words don’t do justice to the beauty of Albania. So, have a look at the pictures that reveal its magic and let the wanderlust hit you.
