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
We’re organizing six-day group tours to see Albania’s famous lagoons. This tour is mainly focused on bird-watching and nature! It is definitely designed for those with a love of the outdoors but we will indeed visit other points of interest that don’t have to do with birds or fauna. The group will have a maximum of 12 participants and we’ll only run it if we will manage to have a minimum of 4 participants. Get in touch!
Please keep in mind that the itinerary will be flexible in order to allow for the best viewings!  We will have a more complete itinerary closer to the date but we do know where we’ll be staying each night (see below.)  From there we can make the best plans for you according to conditions and interests. Our local ornithology specialists will be hired by us to lead us through the best areas to visit for birds. This will make for a very fun trip!
We are consistently amazed by all the new things learned and by the enthusiasm of our amazing friends from Karavasta, one of the most famous parks in Albania. Albanian Trip and PPNEA are trying to promote the natural, historical and human beauties of Divjaka as well as trying to help local communities get stronger. Quite close to Tirana and Central Albania, this is a great place to visit – it’s the Kingdom of the Curly Pelican of Albania!
We have set some dates for the tour and we’ve chosen it to be in peak of the newborn season when the activity in the lagoons among the resident bird communities is at its highest!
Please keep in mind that we also have a Day Trip we offer of bird watching.
Contact us for more information on 2018 group departures. Winter and spring of 2018 are expected to offer a lot activity in the Albanian wetlands. If you are interested in coming in 2019, we’d be happy to plan that now!
The next tour for this year will start on:
March 21st, 2018
BUT! -we’ll be happy to discuss more departure dates for the coming months of this or future years.
An extension to the tour can be definitely discussed for groups or individual tours and we can add on the historical, artistic and culinary sides of Albania and the region, too!
