One aspect of Albanian culture that interests us is Socialist Realism art – of which Albania has in abundance. The communist regime took the visual arts very, very seriously and the country is peppered with their works, from mosaics to monuments (many of which are now sadly vandalized or have simply been neglected.)

You can visit the National Gallery of Arts in Tirana to see its collection of Socialist Realism art, but without any context or in-depth descriptions, the works can sometimes be a little perplexing. This is why we try to arrange for our clients a visit to the gallery with one of Albania’s finest Socialist Realism artists, Robert Permeti. Those who have taken the tour with him before have been moved by his stories and have learned a lot about the time period.

Calling all plant lovers! After our amazing experience with the Geneva Botanical Association, we’re more than excited to launch our very own Botanical Tour of Albania. This tour is designed to be flexible. We would be happy to discuss with you how many days you have to set aside – whether just a few days or an entire week – and we will come up with the best plan of action while following advice from some of the most informed specialists of Albania and Europe.
Of course, the seasons are important and we will aim to make these journeys when conditions are ideal for following specific flower and plant routes.  We can tell you that the tour will be based mostly in the lush and mountainous northern region of Albania. Here we will explore the rich natural aspects of the region. However, if you have more time to set aside, we can journey to other parts of the country.
Rather than setting an itinerary in stone here, get in touch with us!  Let us know the number of days you have free, when you are coming and from there we can begin to discuss what opportunities there are.
Price:
The price will be discussed based on the duration and number in your group.  Don’t hesitate to email: contact@albaniantrip.com for more information.
The price will inlcude:
  • Fuel and AC car rental
  • All expenses for professional guide/driver
  • Entrance fees at the suggested sites
  • VAT tax

Elton has an incredible, earth-shattering idea floating around in his head for a tour that will bring you to the kitchens of families, farms and restaurants for an 8 to 12 day self-guided tour in Albania.  It’ll combine beaches, mountains and urban environments and will surely encompass loads of food, wine and raki.  The idea is both to taste the delights on offer and also be a part of their cultivation or production process- a full experience.  Nature will be in abundance.

Let Albanian Trip organize one of the least touristy experiences you can have in Albania!  Of course it will include visiting classic local beauties like Berat, Butrint, Lake Ohrid or Gjirokastra, but the best part is that you will spend quality time with local families in the charming, lesser known towns and countryside.  This is the best way to make genuine new friends that will help you truly explore and understand Albania or the Adriatic part of the Balkans.

We will arrange for you to travel a bit, then you will spend 5 or 6 days with a local family.  From there, you can move to another part of the region or stay on a nice little beach.  Whatever you decide, you will extract wonderful memories and experiences!

Since this is very much a tailor-made trip, we will be working with each individual or group to discern what your particular interests are.  From there, we will establish a price, itinerary and activities accordingly.

2019 is approaching!  Contact us for more info regarding this new approach into a great corner of Europe and the Mediterranean.
