Protect, Preserve, Promote

We understand why people want to visit Albania, so we work hard to preserve the things that you have come to seek first-hand- our land, our traditions, and our heritage. It is our goal to not only offer the beauty of Albania to visitors, but to help keep it that way.

Peek Inside our country

Peeking inside our country will entice you to see even more! You won’t be able to experience everything in just one visit, but it’s a great place to start. A country full of endless experiences, we will help guide you.


Albania’s landscape ranges from majestic mountains and gorges, luscious valleys, winding rivers, lakes and a seemingly endless countryside. Geotourism helps us protect these natural wonders through appreciation, respect, and promoting sustainability.

What Our Guests Are Saying


What a great trip to Albania, Macedonia & Greece we had! What a beautiful country! Thank you hugely for putting together such a wonderfully balanced journey. Our patient guide and knowledgeable, Kela was excellent! I think she showed us all the best spots in the time we had, and with a bright smile, she could talk the stone faced guards or policemen into getting her way. The food was excellent and she made sure I had a dairy-free meal. I felt very taken care of, safe and spoiled. A great trip all the way around! thank you! thank you very much, warm wishes
