Go to Albania. Practical info, climate, best period, months to avoid

Go to Albania

Despite the rather small extension, Albania has different climatic areas. The reason is mainly due to its conformation.

Generally speaking, in the country it is possible to identify two large climatic regions. The coastal area is characterized by a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot summers, and mild and fairly rainy winters. In this area, the summer tourist flow is concentrated, with visitors attracted by the seaside resorts.
As you move away from the coast, the climate takes on a continental character, with fairly cold winters, especially at high altitudes.
The higher the altitude, the lower the temperatures, with an obvious thermal from day to night.

Precipitation is quite abundant throughout the year and, in particular, in October.
If you have decided to go to Albania in the summer, do not forget to pack fresh clothes and a light sweater for the evening. In winter, warm and heavy clothes. On holiday with your children, also remember to wear a raincoat due to frequent rainfall.

July and August are the favorite months for a beach holiday, and, as such, the most expensive. However, they are not the best months to visit the country or the capital, due to the heat.
September can be considered, in effect, the best month to go to Albania on vacation. Water temperatures are slightly lower than in August, but still perfect for a beach holiday. The climate, moreover, is also pleasant to move around the country, and visit Tirana and other inland locations.


January and February are the coldest months of the year. They are considered months of poor tourist appeal. In some places, the mercury column falls below zero.
Certainly, few venture for a trip to Albania this month. December, too, quite cold, retains a minimum of charm for Christmas; the reference, however, is not that of the known European locations.
