Albania, officially the Republic of Albania, is a country in Southeastern Europe. The country had a total population of 3 million people as of 2016. It is a unitary parliamentary constitutional republic with the capital in Tirana, the country's most populous city and main economic and commercial centre.

Almost two-thirds of Albania’s geography is either hilly or mountainous. These enable outdoor recreation potential and of course impressing off road cycling. There is a renewed interest in adventure tourism in Albania with towns like Vermosh, Thethi, Razëm, Bogë, and Valbona serving as destination points for expeditions. In the mountains you can also find cultural experiences. You can also explore Albania’s pearl, Albanian Coastline. The Albanian coast begins in the northwest at the Buna River delta, which marks the Albania-Montenegro border, and extends southward until it reaches Stillo Cape at the Albanian-Greek border. Including various lagoons and harbors, the coast stretches for a total of 450 km and touches two seas: the Ionian in the south and the Adriatic in the north.
