Getting to the bays can often be a challenge, as you take shepherds’ paths, passing by goats and sheep, and make your way down trampled paths that go through idyllic landscapes.

Campsites in Albania

Albania isn't a completely new insider tip as a camping destination. A lot has happened in terms of tourism especially in the camping sector. A large variety of campsites welcomes families, couples and also solo-campers. Compared to its northern neighbours, Albania is a rather poor country, which you will notice as soon as you cross the border. The Albanians, however, are very interested in tourists, especially in the rural areas, and like to invite you for food and drink - even if they don't have much. This hospitality is also evident at the campsites, where there is often a family-like, happy atmosphere. However, anyone looking for complete comfort is at the wrong address when camping in Albania. The campsites are usually smaller and more simply equipped than in other European countries. Those looking for an authentic experience in the midst of unspoilt nature will certainly find what they are looking for in Albania.

What Campers Should Know about Camping in Albania

Watch Out: Mountains!

Around 50% of Albanian territory is mountainous, reaching heights over 600 m. Streets are often made up of rough dirt paths, so make sure your vehicle is up to the challenge before you head out on your adventure.

Be Careful Behind the Wheel

When you’re driving in Albania, you should be extra careful. The locals see driving regulations more as suggestions, so their risk tolerance is also higher than most. If anything should happen, call 129 for the police and 126 for an emergency doctor.

Ease up!

The speed limits are relatively strict in Albania. In built-up areas, the limit is 40 km/h. Outside built-up areas, it increases to 70 km/h. When driving on the motorway, cars can drive up to 110 km/h, but if you’re travelling by motorhome, the speed limit is 90 km/h.
