Tour Description

If you are searching for an authentic travel experience look no further than Rural Albania- 4×4 off-road tour.

Our Rural Albania tours combine culture and off-road adventure. Instead of driving city to city on main roads, we take small mountain tracks, meaning you’ll get to see incredible landscapes and pass through remote villages.

Hot or cold seasons are no excuse not to go exploring Albania’s beautiful less-visited regions. For mountain roads you need to hire a serious 4×4 car and we’re happy to announce that we have several – all available for a fraction of the price you’d pay with one of the international car-hire firms!

Albania is a rural and untamed country. Around 75 percent of our country is mountainous, just waiting for exploration. With a terrain of more than 2000 km to make it happen, makes off-roading an unusual travel experience.

As people say that adventure starts out of your comfort zone, we often feel relaxed away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Being stimulated by the curiosity we will proceed further with the unexplored wild world. During this tour we will have the chance to visit numerous churches, temples, colorful mosques and archaeological sites listed as World Heritage of UNESCO.

You can get there by hiring a driver to chauffeur you, or by renting a 4×4 to drive yourself. We are experienced in creating tailor-made tours, that fit our clientele special interest. We love tours that combine hotels with home-stays and can put together unique itineraries traveling as far north as Albanian Alps and as far south as Albanian Riviera.

Please contact us for rates and availability.
