Albania is without question one of Europe’s hidden wonders. Ancient Roman history rubs shoulders with some of the most breathtaking mountain scenery you can imagine. Bubbling hot springs, charming mountain villages, a Mediterranean climate, delicious food, and empty trails await.
Spending four core days running among the mountains and valleys of the alps, traversing the high peaks which run the natural border between Albania and neighbouring Montenegro.
We’ll experience running on empty trails as well as lush alpine meadows and waterfalls, with impromptu stops to bathe in natural hot springs. Our nightly accommodation will be cosy mountain lodges with delicious Albanian cuisine and wine to ensure we are well-rested and recovered.
Alongside the alps, we’ll be spending some time urban running as we explore the communist-era sights of Tirana, as well as having some well-deserved chill time on the beaches of Durres.

Pure Trails for Everyone. Forever.
Since day one, it’s always been about giving back, protecting the places we run and, leaving the smallest of footprints.
We set up Pure Trails Adventure to be just that, pure trails.
That doesn’t just mean running on #CENSOR# trails where few others travel, but looking after the people and places we visit, keeping them pure for future others to enjoy.
