After I had already traveled to Albania several times privately, the desire grew in me to offer such a trip commercially in the future. In the first place, I wasn’t really interested in off-road driving – there are certainly better destinations in Europe. Rather, it was the desire to bring this contrasting country, almost on our doorstep and yet so completely different, with its diverse and, I think, quite intense contrasts, to a wider group of people.
A little off-road and a little more culture. Perhaps more in the sense of an overlander than an off-roader. Or just a bit of both.
After the decision was made in 2017 to turn Albania into a salable concept, I received inquiries from friends and acquaintances whether it would not be possible to take part in a kind of scout tour in 2017. Somewhat surprised, this made me think about this type of off-road trip.
Said and done…
The idea quickly became serious and suddenly I was no longer traveling alone in Albania. What can I say … we were a great group. Ten days welded us together, more than anyone expected. We met as casual acquaintances and returned from the tour as friends.
