Albania might be starting to gain traction as a tourist destination, but is still a pretty well-kept secret. With its dramatic mountain ranges, amazing beaches, and delicious cuisine, it’s taking off in the tourism world. However, leave the bright capital of Tirana and things slow down.
Tip: Check out the dramatic Lake Komani, a man-made lake built in the 1970s. You can sail between high mountains full of hidden villages without seeing a person.
