Swiss photographer Didier Ruef (and friend of Albanian Trip’s co-founder, Elton) offers a comprehensive and interesting tour to the explored and unexplored pockets of Albania. Of course the focus is on taking photographs but you will also get the best on offer in terms of food, accommodation and local hospitality.
Helping with technique and composition, Didier picks the best spots and timing for high-quality images you can brag to your friends about (and you can check out his personal website here!) Albania is the perfect ground for “new meets old:” modern buildings with splashes of colourful paint and cosmopolitan people are less than an hour away from shepherds in traditional clothing herding their flocks.
This one-of-a-kind tour should not be missed! Pack your best camera gear – you are guaranteed to get stunning photographs in this beautiful landscape.
While in the past this tour was done with people brought from Geneva, we are opening it up to anyone who wants to sign up – it’ll be a great opportunity to meet new people with similar passions (and you don’t have to worry about taking too long to set up your tripod!)
The photographer and the guide will be able to communicate in English, French, Italian, German and Albanian so photographers and travelers of the world, unite! This is going to be a great trip – see below for the itinerary!
We have two dates on offer for 2019, one in spring and one in fall:
Spring: April 13th to 20th, 2019
Fall: September 1st to 8th, 2019
Please keep in mind that we can change the itinerary as we go! We may discover photo opportunities that present themselves and can’t be missed and we will change the course accordingly. Otherwise, here is where we can expect to be:
Day 1- Tirana
Day 2- Tirana
Day 3 – Elbasan-Berat
Day 4 – Berat-Karavasta
Day 5 – Korca
Day 6 – Rehova
Day 7 – Gjirokastra

The tour of this price will be listed in Euros and will be posted once we gauge the interest! Of course, we can take Albanian Lek, GBP and USD, too. We will discuss payment options with you.
