“Hassan's knowledge, motivation, positivity and sense of humor made every hour slip past like we were just taking a leisurely stroll.”

Testimonial

My fiancé and I have been traveling through the Balkans for about four months now and nothing has topped our trek with Hassan and Outdoor Albania.

The tour was planned out perfectly and our bellies were filled with ridiculously good food (like, so good it was hard to believe) for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Parts of the trail were a little strenuous, but the views made the discomfort disappear. This is a SERIOUSLY beautiful area.

Hassan’s knowledge, motivation, positivity and sense of humor made every hour slip past like we were just taking a leisurely stroll. He jumped at any opportunity to make us a little more comfortable or a little more happy, and I really appreciated that.

I HIGHLY recommend the four-day tour through Valbona, Thethi and the Blue Eye and I’m positive my new friends (who I met on the tour) would agree!

Discover the blue eye with Outdoor Albania

“The trip absolutely exceeded our expectations.”

Testimonial

A group of us (friends from Australia, USA and England) went on a week long trip with Outdoor Albania in mid-Sept. Not knowing a lot about Albania or the company, we weren’t really sure what to expect, but we all went in with an open mind and a sense of adventure. What can I say? The trip absolutely exceeded our expectations.

Our guide Gerg was fantastic and very knowledgeable about the area and the trip was extremely well organized. The hotels we stayed at, while basic, were clean and we all felt safe. The food – WOW! every single meal was AMAZING. We didn’t eat a bad dish the entire week.

The kayaking along the coast is stunning. The water is clean and clear and the most amazing color of blue. The towns along the coast are quite basic, some more established than others (Hirame and Saranda are quite large), but all were comfortable and the people were very friendly.

They are a quickly growing country with some typical problems, such as garbage clean up. We often encountered areas where garbage was strewn about. Of course this is an infrastructure problem that will get better in the years to come. My guess is that within 10 years, the Ionian coast of Albania will become a popular yachting designation just like its neighbors Greece and Croatia.

We would all highly recommend this trip if you are in good shape and enjoy kayaking, or just want to try something new. I don’t have a lot of kayaking experience and I felt fine. In all, we kayaked about 65km in 6 days. It’s truly the best way to see this part of the country, and Outdoor Albania is an excellent company to do it with.

Sea kayaking with Outdoor Albania

“Outdoor Albania made it possible for us to establish an unguided trip with a lot of good experiences.”

Testimonial

We had the pleasure of renting kayaks, accommodation and transportation from Outdoor Albania. The knowledge and contacts from Outdoor Albania made it possible for us to establish an unguided trip with a lot of good experiences.

Three days of hiking and three days of paddling. We visited Theth, walked to Valbone and enjoyed stunning Komani Lake in kayak. Contacts from Outdoor Albania gave us the opportunity to stay with local and friendly Albanians, although we were quite prepared for camping. Outdoor Albania was willing to rent us the kayaks and let us travel on our own, which was what we wanted as experienced paddlers.

But the company is used to manage guided trips, so the services for getting local knowledge and maps were not quite in place. Eventually it turned out to be a magnificent and compact experience in a very very beautiful country.

Outdoor Albania made it possible!
