Albania Tours

What makes Albania so seductive is its relative remoteness and recent isolation from the rest of the region. While the coastal areas are attractively familiar, here at Jules Verne we will also open your eyes to the riches further inland. The mountains of Albania conceal Ottoman fortresses and ancient Illyrian sites, historic villages, monasteries and mosques.

Where will our Albania escorted tours take you?

Unlike so many travel destinations, much of the country remains unspoilt, so there is still an array of treasures to explore on your Albania trip. It’s not just what you will see that makes a tour through Albania special, but it is also what you will get the chance to hear. With its Greek, Latin, Turkic and Slav influences – as well as its own unique notes – the language is intriguing.

We’re confident that any traveller will be enthralled by this country, book on our Classical Tour of Albania and you'll get to witness Berat, a UNESCO World Heritage site, hillside Museum City of Gjirokastra and explore modern Tirana.

Or stay in one base in Durres to explore the Highlights of Albania with excursions to the previous capital of Kruja, modern Tirana and Ottoman Berat.

Alternatively tour Albania as part of a baltic exploration with Secret Balkans visiting Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina in addition, or Balkan Explorer also visiting the beautiful landscapes of Kosovo and North Macedonia on an 8 night tour. 

When is the best time to go on one of our Albania trips?

With a Mediterranean climate, Albania experiences rainy yet mild winters and hot, sunny summers – especially along the coast. To ensure that you get the most out of your Albania tour with us, we would recommend that you book your trip throughout the spring or autumn months, as these are generally the best times to visit.
