Trekking in Albania

Trekking in Albania

Walks Worldwide have two new dates for its ‘The Accursed Mountains’ trek to Albania following enormous demand.

One of the extra dates is at the time of the London Olympics for those who would rather challenge themselves physically than watch other people do it.

The trekking is graded as ‘demanding’, walking between four and eight hours a day at altitudes of up to 2000m.

Mark Knowles, the man responsible for researching and creating Walks Worldwide’s treks, says: “Albania is our real big surprise this year… This remote area of Europe can easily be compared with more far-flung and exotic destinations, including the lesser-trekked regions of the Himalaya…”

The new dates for Walks Worldwide’s The Accursed Mountains small group trips (max. 10 people) are 30 June and 15 September 2012.

The 8-day itinerary costs from £565 pp which includes 7 nights’ accommodation, most meals, local guide, overland travel and baggage transfers whilst walking.
