As Eastern and Central Europe becomes increasingly popular, tour operators are expanding their offerings to more destinations. For example, Journeys International has recently expanded its trip offerings to include Albania and the Czech Republic.
Albania emerged from isolation in the early 1990s, and visitors can expect to experience a distinctive culture and a well-preserved natural environment. From the white-sand beaches of the sparkling “Albanian Riviera” to rugged hikes through the “Albanian Alps,” Journeys travelers will find jawdropping landscapes here without the crowds and high prices characteristic of other European countries.
Visitors to the Czech Republic will explore the castles, rolling hills, cobblestone streets and one of Europe’s most beautiful capital cities in Prague. Walking trips will also take travelers beyond the city to discover deep forests and towns between Prague and Vienna, Austria. The Czech Republic has a strong sense of history balanced with modern style. Visitors will be able to explore spired castles towering over traditional villages and visit Podyji National Park and the winding Dyje River.
Charming Czech Republic and Trekking the Albanian Alps will debut in Journeys spring 2013 catalog, but are available for immediate review and booking on the company website and by speaking with a Journeys Destination Specialist.
