Six Day Bird-Watching Tour

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!
This year’s tours will start on:
January 21st, 2018
February 21st, 2018
