What a fantastic time so far with Adventure & Fun Albania. A true adventure with loads of fun in incredible scenery with a warm Albanian people and from Kosovo. How truly blessed I am for this amazing opportunity.
A marvelous 12 day trip of the south. Beautiful country, excellent accommodations, great food. Private tour, shuttled around by our great guide Loren (amazing young man, owner of company) in his Land Rover. A small country with so much history. Wonderful to see how it has emerged from the dark days of Hoxha, Communism.
Friends and family said “why Albania???” and we are now saying “why not Albania”. The trek excelled all our expectations and couldn’t be handled in a more professional way. The whole experience was very enriching & humbling albeit a little challenging at times but the opportunity to be high in the mountains with just “our” small group was just magic. The trek involves various types of transport, permits, guides & accommodation and Adventure and Fun ensure all runs very smoothly.
This tour is a must do. We altered between mountains and coastlines with a variety of great things to do in between. Our guide Loren was beyond incredible. His professionalism and knowledge are above average. Our accommodations were more than we expected and the food options were amazing. We walked, we hiked, we learned and we paraglided. One of the most exciting things I’ve ever done. My friend and I were so pleased with everything.
We had such a great time at the Albanian alps!! Thank you so much for the perfect organization of our trip. Everything was extremely well organized and the booked guest houses as well as the hosts so lovely. We enjoyed holiday and our trip to the mountains so much – especially your tour recommendations and insider tips.
To all my friends who love adventure, exploring and experiencing life and cultures outside our comfort zones of home, please go and join the Adventure and Fun Albanian trips, in the Balkans, as you can see this is an amazing country and welcoming people. Go see and experience the mts.
We contacted Adventure & Fun Albania roughly two weeks before our departure with our wishes of what we wanted to hike and experience. We highly recommend Adventure & Fun Albania, we were taken so good care of at all times, our guide Loren always had interesting things to say about everything we saw and asked about. There was always the possibility to change or alter our hiking wishes during the trip and he was always there for us when we needed him.
Albania blew us away, great experience
Everything went super smoothly.
We would return in a heartbeat and would love to do other tours like the Peaks of the Balkans or head down South.
The country is surprising in all the right ways, the people are friendly, the food is awesome and cheap, our guides were brilliant (we had 2 guides for 4 people – so good!) and the accommodation/food/transport etc all as advertised and up to western standards.
North Albania exceeded our expectations and I can strongly recommend Adventure and Fun Albania.
The tour was fantastic. We loved every place that we visited. The drive through the mountains was beautiful. The beaches on the Ionian Coast were incredible. Albania has so much varied history, landscapes and architecture. Each day seemed to bring something different but was as good as the last. The accommodation on the tour was excellent, far better than we had anticipated, we couldn’t fault it in the slightest. The hotels were always clean, in a great location and we had some spectacular views from our room. We are both vegetarian and we were able to find some good meals everywhere we went, we again couldn’t fault any of the places chosen to eat.
We would definitely recommend doing a tour through Adventure and Fun Albania.
Great tour operator, first class service.
I have been to Albania two times and on both trips, we were travelling with AFA. In short, they make sure that you have a great tour and provide you with the best accommodation, the best places to eat and the best guides possible in whichever part of Albania they take you.
For Albania in general, it is a beautiful country, the people are very friendly and with the guides of AFA you will return home with lot of knowledge about Albania and its history which is really interesting.
I can really recommend Adventure & fun Albania and would always make them my first choice when visiting Albania.
Extraordinary service, H24 availability, exceptional activities, incredible discoveries, a faultless itinerary, unfailing flexibility, invaluable advice, unmissable support, places and people to discover – I’m full of stars in my eyes thanks to this agency, which I highly recommend!
Loved The Albanian Way
We want to thank Adventure & Fun Albania for the wonderful opportunity we had to travel with Ben on our Hiking and sightseeing tour in Northern Albania. The trip was really amazing and we felt so relaxed and well looked after. The tour went with only the two of us, so we felt quite special. Ben was a fabulous guide! He has a huge passion for his country, the outdoors and his job as a guide! His knowledge of the history and regions we were in is incredible.
We were delighted with each accommodation and the meals were delicious.
Where do I begin! We booked on last minute from Dubai in less than 3 days and land up with the best hiking plan in Albania. Doing the South trails was one of a kind, but what made it more special is our Guide, Loren … we can’t describe his professionalism or kindness in one review, he was super knowledgeable and super honest and kind representing Albanian culture and values to the core and we are blown away by his personality.
We wouldn’t just say “we recommend” because we were truly lucky.
Thank you, Adventure & Fun Team, and specifically Our Guide for the hospitality and kindness he showed us a true Albanian and we can’t wait to do the North Albania with you.
The overall experience was excellent. The itinerary was well planned and offered diverse activities and sightseeing. The hotels were very nice, and the meals were excellent. The small group of 6 travellers plus our guide made for a memorable experience for everyone. We travelled well together and everyone was considerate of other people’s needs and preferences. Our guide was a veritable gem, as he was very educated and knew everything about Albania. He lived through the Communist Times and told us so many stories about what people went through during the dictatorship. The places we visited were spectacular: we went to beautiful caves and swimming spots on the Ionian Sea in small boats twice; we also had the opportunity to go up into the mountains and enjoy hiking there; we were also amazed at the ancient sites of the Roman and Greek civilizations from 9th-7th century BC.
Professionally run company with all details of the trip taken care of from the moment I booked, My guide, Denis, was brilliant ensuring my safety and setting a pace I could handle. The scenery is spectacular and every day was different. The guest houses were comfortable and the food provided was very good and plentiful. A memorable hiking experience I highly recommend.
Wir haben eine wirklich sehr schöne Woche gehabt. Die Kueste war wuenderschon und auch die Touren waren gut organisiert. Es ist mit dem Selvaggio Blu auf Sardinien ähnlich. Unsere guide war sehr professionell und weiß auch sehr viel über Land und Leute.
Auch die Ngjipe Schlucht war super. Der Weg von der Strasse über die Schlucht runter zum Strand ist super abgesichert und man muss ein paarmal abseilen. Hat allen gut gefallen.
Thank you for two days of amazing experience. I was impressed by the level of organization. Everyone we met was extremely helpful, friendly in an authentic way and professional. The private tour on the Komani Lake was magic. The guesthouse in Valbona had a standard that I did not expect. Twelve years ago, when I slept last time in Valbona the conditions were very different! The hike from Valbona to Theth was breath-taking and we were so grateful for having a guide with a horse that could carry some extra kilos.
AFA made a very good job right from the beginning: Everything went well during the entire info & booking process and also the trip itself was very well organized (incl. German-speaking pick up from the airport). Questions were answered quickly. The whole tour was amazing, the Guides Ben & Saimir did a really good job and gave good support.
Loren organized a great trip for my husband and me with a great guide, beautiful hotels, delicious food and beautiful scenery.
