Journeys Offers New Albania and Czech Republic Programs

February 27 2013

Ann Arbor, Michigan – February 27, 2013 – Journeys International has recently expanded its trip offerings to include Albania and the Czech Republic.

“At Journeys, we pride ourselves on listening to our clients and filling their bucket lists,” says Robin Pollak, President of Journeys International.  “We inspire adventurous travelers with new ideas for unexplored, remote destinations.” The recent additions of Albania and the Czech Republic are remarkable alternatives to the more common western European vacation. “Not only do these countries expand our offerings in Europe; the land, culture, and history our travelers will experience are a natural fit for the Journeys mission,” explains Pollak.

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 charming towns between Prague and Vienna, Austria. Not enough?  Perhaps some of the best beer in the world will highlight a visit to the Czech Republic! This central European country is drenched in rich history and the legacies of great Renaissance figures, yet balanced with modernity and youthful energy. Pollak notes that the Journeys traveler will step back in time and enter the fairytale-like surroundings of spired castles towering over picturesque and traditional villages.  Visitors can slow down even more by spending time in Podyji National Park and enjoying the tall, dense forests and 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.
