which happen to be right on the peak season of activities in the lagoons and among the resident bird communities. It will spend 6 nights around Albania, will start and end in Tirana and we’ll sell it for 699.0 euros/person in standard double rooms with bed and  breakfast in small local hotels (single supplement 99.0 euros/person) and plenty of parallel visits to balance the interests of those that are interested in more than just birds and fauna. Please contact us for a detailed program in case you’re interested. The group will aim to have a maximum of 18 participants in it and will only leave if we will manage to have a minimum of 5 participants in it. We’ll soon update this information with more details about what we expect to show you and what the days of the program will exactly look like. In case we’ll have more interest in groups wanting to develop this project in other days, we’ll certainly be happy to think and discuss that.

Birdwatching, food, beach, history and local meetings for the coming months and specially in winter 2016 – 2017. We had a first big experience on the 14th of July 2016 – we were quite amazed by all the new things we learned and by the enthousiasm of our amazing friends of Divjaka and Karavasta. Albanian Trip and PPNEA trying to promote the natural, historical and human beauties of Divjaka as well as trying to help local communities get stronger.

Some pictures from our first day and group tour in Karavasta can  be found in our Instagram feed. Let us know when, how many and how much time you would be willing to spend  in this great natural and not only reserve. Quite closed to Tirana and Central Albania it will be a great place where to spend a weekend too! Near the Kingdom of the Curly Pelican of Albania!

We first launched this escorted cultural tour for English-speaking visitors in 2014, managed to convince a few people to go  with us and they loved it! Not very huge but still 2015 was a success. The tour started off in Tirana and took in Korça, Përmet, Gjirokastra, Butrint, Llogara and finally Berat. Albanian Trip’s very own Elton Caushi and Gjergj Mihali led the itinerary to avoid marathon drives and ridiculously early starts. The tour took to the amazing and unusual North as well and brought to some of the cream of its regions. Even the British Airways flight times were civilized! We had no big crowds on the tour but the ones that decided to go with us, loved it!

 

We’ll be happy to offer a Christmas gift of 5% discount on the price of the whole tour for those that will book before 31st December 2016.

Stay tuned for this one coming. Summer  2016 we had our very first lepidopterist tour of some parts of Northern Albania and we’re already planning for next year.

It’s been a great surprising tour, adventure and country. With a fantastic bunch of Israeli butterfly and nature connoisseurs that helped us learn and understand a lot too. Not a very easy task but fulfilled with a lot of enthusiasm, persistence and hard work in amazing company of the some of the most notorious lepidopterists from Israel.

Our next tour will start on the 1st and end on the the 7th of July. Start and end will eventually be in Tirana. The tour will bring to Tirana, Shkodra, the Valbona Valley, the Theth Valley and will eventually happen with a bus, minibus or eventually 4wd cars that we’ll share with the visitors.

We’ll be most happy to arrange longer stays if you will be interested in Albanian mountains, beach or city stays.

We just want to see how much interest and how many ‘partisans’  we would manage to gather together. If you believe this sounds very interesting please drop us an email to contact@albaniantrip.com!
