Back to the Albania trip

Albania - Hydropower, Biodiversity and Conservation

Global Action offers a truly bespoke service and no two itineraries are the same. Sometimes, itineraries may be subject to change due to circumstances outside our control. We will always endeavour to give you an outstanding trip tailored to your learning aims.

  • Day 1

    Shkodra

    Welcome to the gateway to the Albanian Alps! Scenic streets, Ottoman influences, and an introduction to the social and economic history of 'the soul of Albania'.

  • Day 2-4

    Lake Koman to Kosovo

    From freshwater biodiversity on Lake Koman to hiking in the Albanian Alps - you'll find out why hydropower is a big deal here. A night in Kosovo to learn about the power of film for social change.

  • Day 5-7

    The Adriatic to Gremenj National Park

    Organic agriculture, the fall of communism, and the challenges faced by modern migrants in this 'transit' country.

  • Day 8

    The Vjosa Valley

    Meet local activists to learn how they persuaded the government to create the first wild river national park in Europe instead of building a hydroelectric dam.

  • Day 9-11

    Gjirokaster, Butrint and the Albanian Riviera

    Ancient cultures in UNESCO World Heritage Sites, sea kayaking, exploring marine ecosystems in Albania's UNDP-supported maritime park, and a visit to the outstanding Berat Citadel.
