    Come explore the secluded Albania on this six-day ski tour with me. I’ll take you to some of the most unknown corners of the country and massifs, such as Mount Korab at 2.764 meters. With so many places that have never been skied before, the country offers hundreds of options for ski lovers. Let the adventure begin!

    As Albania offers endless opportunities for ski touring I can adapt the program depending on snow and weather conditions. We’ll start flying to Tirana. Then we’ll choose between starting from the border with Greece in south direction or to the north, starting near Montenegro.

    We’ll spend the following six days seeking for the best snow and weather conditions. In addition, we’ll drive around the area to explore more of Albania, while learning about its lively culture and history. Some of the places we can go include the amazing Korab Peak or the Valbone National Park. On our last day, we’ll delight in Albania’s cuisine in a local restaurant in Tirana and spend the night in a hotel.

    This trip implies walking 3 to 6 hours each day to enjoy the best places for ski touring. That’s why I recommend an intermediate-advanced physical and technical level.

    Book your trip now! This fascinating corner of the world is waiting for you. It’ll be my pleasure to be your guide.
