We care about protecting the environment because we hold our activities outdoors and because we are proud of the Albanian spectacular and pristine nature. We wish to continue to preserve it for future generations. This is how our leader Blerina Ago started with adventure tourism in the early beginnings as the v/president of the Albania Rafting Group (2009-2018).
We believe that adventure tourism and environmental protection are complementary, but they are significant forces. Adventure tourism promotes outdoor recreational activities with no impact on natural resources, admiring the beauty of unspoiled remote locations. Active Albania guides and visitors don’t just love the outdoors for a day or a tour. Our work continues beyond the trip that you will experience, as we are involved in whistle-blowing, community awareness raising, and scheduled cleaning days every week.

Active Albania’s contributors with the team leader Blerina Ago, have been actively engaged in the protection of the Osumi Canyons from the eminent threat of Hydro Power Plants. But another natural water source is at risk: the Vjosa River, the last free-flowing river in Europe, located in the south of Albania, is under threat.
