We believe that when all locals profit from living in or near a Protected Area, they will naturally become that area’s most passionate guardians. Many families understand that their greatest economic hope lies with sustainable tourism, but with no telephones in many areas or access to internet, how can potential hosts connect with tourists?
Since 2010 we’ve been running the popular website JourneytoValbona.com, now the most frequently used source of information for all aspects of travel in Northern Albania. Starting this season, we’ve begun an ambitious project to make it possible for anyone to take and make bookings online. You can watch it grow HERE. The best example so far is following the links for Gjelaj, to Danjel’s Guest House at the end of the valley.
