Best Time To Travel To Albania
We recommend traveling anytime between April and September because the weather is perfect for hiking, city exploring, and beaching. Keep in mind, during the month of July and August the Albanian Riviera will be packed accompanied with scorching heat.
When coming in winter, the snow-covered peaks are the perfect place for your first Albanian ski or snowshoe trip. Whether you are coming for a beach festival, old Ottoman buildings, the Albanian Alps, or to sit in natural hot springs, you will be surprised you hadn’t come here sooner.
