Albania Nature & Activities

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

Albania covers a total area 28,748 km2 and is distinguished for its spectacular and diverse terrain. One-third of the country consists of lowlands located primarily in the west and extending along the Adriatic
and Ionian coasts. The remainder of the country is hilly or mountainous and offers tremendous views and vistas. The highest point in Albania, at 2,751 m, is Mount Korabi in Dibra district. As one might
expect, this beautiful and varied terrain offers visitors many opportunities to enjoy Albania’s natural beauty.
The beauty and unique climate offered by the highlands is often just a short drive away from all that the coast and its Mediterranean-like climate have to offer. Albania also enjoys long periods of pleasant weather. Summer is the most sunny and beautiful of the seasons, but the remainder of the year is beautiful, as well.
