Albania - North to South
Here are what some of our customers have had to say about our Albania - North to South cycling holidays...
Sarah Meldrum & Jeremy Bolton, Edinburgh, Scotland
Great trip exploring a new country. A nice mix of hard cycling with some easier days and some great swimming opportunities to relax.
Greg Challis, Sheffield
This was a great trip with thoughtful support from our guides Arjan and Julian. Albania is wonderful place to cycle. The mountains are remote and beautiful, the people incredibly friendly and the history and heritage fascinating.
Kevin Thomasson, Poole, England, UK
Another great redspokes trip. I didn't know what to expect from post communist Albania. I was pleasantly surprised. A beautiful, lively, modern and very friendly country. Our guides Aryan and Juli did a great job looking after us in a friendly amusing and professional manner. redspokes rate it 6/10 more like 7/10. The scenery is varied ranging from stunning mountains to vivid blue seas. Excellent food and good local beers to rehydrate you at the end of the day.
Phillip Stapleton, Bognor Regis, England, UK
I've been on a good number of cycle tours and this one was right up there with the best. Albania is a fascinating mix of the traditional and the modern with history a plenty and scenery to die for. The people were so friendly and the occasional drivers that passed, so courteous. Our guide, Aryan was excellent working tirelessly to show us the best that Albania has to offer. My advice is to go there soon before too many other people discover this gem.
Michael Litchfield, Emerald, Australia
A unique combination of great cycling, great accommodation and amazing food the best of any tour I have been on ! Arjan's passion for his country shone through by providing great insight into Albania's dark past.. Both he and Juli worked tirelessly to ensure we had a fantastic trip. Highly recommend.
Malcolm Thoms, Fife, Scotland
Albania: great holiday and people, excellent food and guide!
Michael Heath, Nuneaton, England, UK
Absolutely superb trip and my eyes were really opened to this stunning country. I took a lot of convincing to travel here, but I'm so glad I did make the effort. Friendly people, great food, great cycling on safe roads and a good standard of hotel all around. Put this country on your bucket list before it becomes discovered properly by the tourists.
Linda Hoff, Malmo, Sweden
This is a fantastic trip around a fascinating and beautiful country. The mountains are impressive, the coastline stuning and the people very friendly and helpfull. Our guide and driver were an excellent team and very good amassadors for Albania.
Bruce Irving, Norwich, England, UK
Both guides are proud of their country and keen to show us everything. They were tremendous fun. We stayed in fanatastic places ranging from downtown Las Vagas, to super cool luxury and a farm stay cabin. All beach hotels were actually by the beach, perfect for a swim.
The food was really superb and so healthy. Excellent Macedonian wine. Albania was well above my expectations I did almost everything I could but left without eating a goats head, so I will have to go back!
Steve Trudgeon & Anne Scaife, Harrogate, England, UK
We really enjoyed the Albania tour with its challenging climbs and exhilarating descents. The guides love of their own country was inspiring. They could not do enough for us. The route and scenery were outstanding. The accommodation was all of a very good standard, allowing us to recover in comfort from each day's efforts. We would highly recommend this trip.
