In early autumn, the ATTA escorted a group of adventure travel tour operators and media from Kosovo to Albania and Macedonia.

Storytellers Mark Crawford and Gregg Bleakney captured the adventurous activity, the stunning scenery, the telling ruins, the new flavors, sounds and colors of the Western Balkans.

The AdventureWeek Western Balkans participants returned from the trip with a new understanding of this overlooked region of Europe. After seeing a sampling of what they saw, we hope you will too.

  1. Great photos! Speaking for Albania, it’s changing incredibly rapidly. Western Balkans is definitely a destination to get to sooner rather than later.

  2. Fully agree with you, Ed! Albania is changing – hopefully only for good! There is a will to preserve it – let’s see what happens…

  3. Hosting the International Tour Operators to the Balkans was a positive experience not only for the operators on the Ground but a great “eye-opener” to many that the Balkans can certainly be thought of a Destination. This part of the world has everything other destinations have and more…Western Balkans – Land of Discovery MapGuide portal is a great reference site to discover this part of the world on your own or with Geo Tourism professionals to assist along the way! http://www.balkansgeotourism.travel.
