Albania and Kosovo
Albania and Kosovo OverviewThis is an adventurous walking tour that goes off the beaten track in some style (with comfortable hotels and very good food and wine). Running from 12 - 26 May 2023 (max 14 guests), tour highlights include walking to isolated churches with Byzantine frescoes, to hilltop castles and ruined cities, and high in the Albanian Alps for flowers.
Albania and Kosovo - Walking in Illyria and Epirus
Albania holds obvious appeal for the adventurous traveller: the wild Albanian Alps, a rich archaeological and Ottoman heritage and an Adriatic coastline as beguiling as Croatia’s, all, intriguingly, hidden for decades by a policy of total isolation. Further investigation adds to the intrigue: 168,000 defensive bunkers strewn in city and country; astonishing mountain flora, thanks to an absence of modern chemicals; the improbable sight of teddy bears placed on all new buildings to ward off the evil eye and an array of virtually unknown UNESCO World Heritage Sites, any one of which would justify the trip.
