TIRANA, January 26

“Albania’s star has been rising, with more travelers each year wanting to explore its treasures,” the International Edition of the Guardian says in a recent article about the world’s 20 best adventure destinations for 2018. The article by the influential British paper features an appealing list of outdoor activities for all the thrill-seekers that are looking an exciting vacation. Even though underrated from the adventure travel industry, Albania is a perfect playground when it comes to the great outdoors. From the northern Alps to the Ionian Riviera, the country offers a vast range of outdoor activities like multi-day hiking trails, mountain biking, diving, off-road adventures, rafting, horse-riding, paragliding, etc.
Albania falls under the category of great coastal hiking trips in the Guardian’s list.

The Albanian Riviera is known for its beaches and crystal clear water. Yet, what would be better than hiking to those areas where there’s no road infrastructure. One of the newest attraction regarding coastal hiking trips is the National Marine Park Karaburun-Sazan in Vlora area. Several new trails have been marked in Karaburun Peninsula while Sazani Island was the year’s highlight. Excellent areas for coastal hiking trips in Albania are Rodoni Cape area, Divjake-Karavasta National Park, a great selection of hiking trails in the southern coast that can also be found under the Mysterious South Project, and many others.
