Hi Dale, Albania is replacing the dirt trails with tarmac at a very fast rate and some of the trails we went for are now coated in lovely new tarmac.
i have never rough camped in Albania but there are plenty of suitable areas although the ground is always very rocky. i very highly recommend 'Camping Albania' near Shkoder, run by a dutch family and also the campsite near Lesovik in the South. otherwise i stayed in small hotels.
the trails i have done are all suitable for an adventure bike with suitable tyres, Tourance - TCK's, ideal for a rider with only basic off road skills
SHKODER - KOPLIK - THETH - DRISHT - SHKODER; Best trail and scenery, also the most difficult
kUKES - PESHKOPI; Easy, very enjoyable with great scenery
CORVODA - PERMET; medium difficulty
KOPLIC - VERMOSH; medium difficulty but a jarring ride
GRAMSH - MALIQ; Easy - medium

Great pictures Andy, looks like you had a fantastic time.

How long does it take you to ride down to Albania?
