Tirana bike tours

Tirana, Albania’s capital and largest city, is enclosed by the country’s central mountains and looks out towards the Adriatic Sea. Founded as a city in 1614 by an Ottoman Albanian general, the area itself has been continuously inhabited since at least the Iron Age. This long history has left behind a distinctive blend of traditional and contemporary influences, from Roman ruins and Ottoman mosques, to a growing tourism industry and excellent transport links, making Tirana the perfect location for taking day tours on your trip to Albania.




Spend time in the center of Tirana soaking up its lively cafe culture. Cafes, bars, and restaurants spill out onto the streets whilst markets bustle with locals and tourists seeking groceries and handmade souvenirs. The city also boasts a raft of cultural sightseeing opportunities: the National History Museum, the Archeological Museum, and the Natural Science Museum, as well as the National Theatre and the Opera and Ballet Theatre, all waiting to give you a taste of Albania's rich cultural offerings.

While there’s plenty to see in town, visitors should also take advantage of the city’s enviable location by taking a day tour from the capital. Ride to the resplendent Cape of Rodon on a bike tour that meanders through Durres Country and arrives at the chalky cliffs and tranquil shores of Albania’s largest cape.

For a bicycle tour that leads you from Albania’s capital to its second city, take the Tirana to Durres Bike Tour. You’ll discover the port city where sandy beaches, poplar trees, and ancient ruins abound. Or, if you can’t pass up the opportunity to visit the deepest lake in the Balkans, and one of the oldest lakes in the world, the Tirana to Lake Ohrid Bike Tour is for you. Cross the border by bike as you cycle into Northern Macedonia and ride along the shores of Lake Ohrid, before stopping at the city of Ohrid and the historic town of Struga.

In short, there is no end of sightseeing opportunities in Tirana, and taking a bike tour is a surefire way to enjoy an immersive experience of Albanian culture and to gain some local insight into life in ‘The Land of Eagles’ with the help of your guide.
