Internationale groepsreis Snowshoeing in Albania

Snowshoe amidst the rugged Albanian Alps and experience traditional rural life

Route 9 daagse rondreis Snowshoeing in Albania

This is uncharted territory for recreational snowshoers. The rugged Albanian Alps possess a wild and outstanding natural beauty and the country a captivating history. Ancient blood feuds and folklore mark its past and agricultural life has remained unchanged for centuries. Some say that visiting Albania is as close as you'll get to stepping back in time. It wasn't until the collapse of the People's Socialist Republic of Albania in 1991 that the world got its first glimpse of the country within. After winter snowfall, the remote mountains around Valbonë and the Kosovo border offer some fantastic snowshoe routes passing alpine meadows, rural hamlets, snowy summits and pristine forest. There’s time too for sightseeing in Prizren before heading back to Tirana for our last night.
