Croatia to albania

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a trip of 7-8 weeks duration starting in Croatia and finishing in Albania.
We hope to drive quite a bit. We would like some advise on the best places to see,stay and also the best beaches.
We would appreciate any thoughts.

    The area is, IMO, incredibly diverse and so none of us can tell you want YOU will want to see and experience. I urge you to get a couple of really good guidebooks -- perhaps the Rough Guides for the areas for which they are available (Croatia for sure -- it was BY FAR the best of the guidebooks I used for planning my time there), as they provide very comprehensive coverage of your options for seeing and experiencing things.

    FWIW, I thought the Plitvice Lakes National Park the single most un-missable of Croatia's many splendors. The lakes connected by gorgeous travertine waterfall formations, and each lake has unique microbiota, so that the lakes are different colors. The best way to see that is to make a single, long loop through the park -- something on the order of 6 hours or more (including time for the boat that connects the lower and upper lakes) and walking from the lower area to the upper area (so you face the falls as you walk).

    I haven't been to Albania yet, but sincerely hope to see Lake Ohrid one day.

    I envy you your time in the area and look forward to answering more questions as you develop your plans.
