Highlights of Albania with John Geiger

This adventure will offer travellers a firsthand look at this previously isolated country accompanied by international bestselling author, dynamic lecturer, and CEO of the RCGS, John Geiger. John has been featured on countless television and radio programs, as well as documentary films such as National Geographic’s The Angel Affect, which was based on one of Geiger’s many exploration themed books, so you can be sure he has endless anecdotes, insights, and stories to share.
Experience the diverse range of cultures and landscapes of Albania, from the artist havens in Voskopoje, sweeping panoramic views of the Gramos Mountains, ancient Greek sites in Llogara National Park, and the narrow-cobbled streets of UNESCO-listed Berat. Relax and enjoy the famous food and wine of Permet, visit crumbling castles in Korce, and follow in the footsteps of Julius Caesar at the site where his battles against Pompeii were won.
