Tourism has contributed greatly to the development of places and societies in the economic, cultural and social spheres, but this phenomenon can be quite dangerous if it is used and viewed in a non-responsible way.
It is for these reasons that a group of young people trained in tourism development and communication had the idea to create a tourism agency orientated towards alternative forms of tourism such as: ecotourism, responsible, sustainable and united.

“LAND of Albania! where Iskander rose, Theme of the young, and beacon of the wise, And he, his namesake, whose oft-baffled foes Shrunk from his deeds of chivalrous emprize: Land of Albania! let me bend mine eyes On thee, thou rugged nurse of savage men! The cross descends, thy minarets arise, And the pale crescent sparkles in the glen, Through many a cypress-grove within each city’s ken. “
George Gordon, Lord Byron (From Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage)
Albania is a relatively small country located in the southeastern side of Europe.
It borders with Montenegro to the northwest, Kosovo to the northeast, North Macedonia to the east, Greece to the south and Italy to the west.
Suffering a lot of invasions and one of the harshest dictatorships in Europe, Albania had a difficult time placing itself as a safe tourism country in the eyes of the world. Without doubt, there do exist a lot of stereotypes which may make people hesitant about coming to Albania but however, these kind of stereotypes are being reduced day by day because tourists are choosing to see the real Albania. And what is a better way to understand something than to personally experience it?
Some of the most prestigious magazines and travel blogs named Albania “a must visit” country. We will give you some reasons why we think this is true and after reading them all, you can start with packing. 😊
1. THE ACCURSED MOUNTAINS
The Accursed Mountains or known otherwise as the Albanian Alps ( Bjeshket e Namuna) spread over the borders of Albania, Kosovo and Montenegro, and in Albania they reach a height of 2694m.
Without doubt, these mountains make some of the wildest, most magical and least explored places in Europe. Also this area has some of the world's best paths,trails,hikes and treks which became very famous after being discovered by the tourists and especially from the Byron's journey in Albania. There are aproximately around 22 hikes around the country so there's lot of outdoor opportunities waiting for you.
2. THE ALBANIAN RIVIERA
Albania has one the best Rivieras in Europe. What you will experience is : Clear crystal waters, pristine and untouched beaches.
Also, make sure to visit the old Albanian villages alongside the Riviera for a fully Albanian hospitality and traditions.
3. UNESCO SITES
For those of you who prefere to dwell in Albanian culture and heritage, we have a solution : Archaelogical and UNESCO sites. There are plenty of them in Albania.
Berat is a 2,413 years old city and it is known by Albanians as “the town of thousand windows” because of its unique architecture.
Gjirokasta, or The stone City is also part of UNESCO heritage sites.
The main characteristic of Gjirokastra is the intensive use of stones in building the houses, which look like small fortresses and the unique cobblestone Streets. This city is also home to one of the most famous ( internationally too) albanian writers, Ismail Kadare.
Other UNESCO sites
3. Apollonia Archaelogical Park
The best part of visiting a new country lies is when meeting with the locals. Albania has an ongoing history of its hospitality, and we don’t say this to brag but because it is true.
Once in Albania, people will treat you as their guest of honor and will try to make your stay as beautiful as possible.
