Did you know that the hiking in Albania is some of the best in the world? Ok, maybe not the best in the world, but definitely some of the most beautiful trails and views I’ve ever had the pleasure to lay eyes on.

I’ve hiked in the Himalayas in Nepal, explored Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado, summited a 19,000 ft active volcano and trekked the stunning rainbow mountains in Peru and much more. I consider myself a fairly active traveler and my standards are pretty high… yet, Albania still crushed them.

If you’re thinking about hiking in Albania, these 11 photos will definitely inspire you to stop day dreaming and start making your trip a reality!
