Discover Balkan charm in AlbaniaAlbania

We’re tipping big things for this burgeoning Balkan country, so now’s the time to make tracks before everyone else catches wind of its charms. MIR Corporation’s two-week Albania: Beyond the Guidebook tour offers the perfect introduction to the country.

After starting in the vibrant capital of Tirana, where the buildings are painted different colours, you’ll pass through the remote Albanian Alps, visit a local qeleshe (skullcap) workshop in Kruja, down shots of raki in Permet and gawk at the incredible Ottoman architecture in the UNESCO World Heritage-listed town of Berat. Plus, there’s mussel tasting on Lake Butrint, a walking tour of Shkodra and a cooking class in Korce, which just goes to show how full of surprises Albania really is. 

MIR Corporation’s 14-day Albania: Beyond the Guidebook tour starts at US$4,995.
