Ever dream of going on a proper adventure? Heading out to discover new lands and experiences? We do. So, with a Land Rover LR4, we set out to find the least explored valley in Europe.
In the Accursed Mountains of northern Albania, deep in the valleys below Europe’s southernmost glaciers, you forsake electricity, shops and modern conveniences, but you find honour, warm hospitality and staggering natural beauty.
Albania is 77 per cent mountain and Land Rover’s Terrain Response makes light work of the rough, rock-strewn tracks that weave and corkscrew up into these peaks. In the valleys, you’re greeted by local people who live by a strict code of hospitality – one that is very welcome when you have spent a day tackling snow, ice, swollen rivers and rock fall in your Land Rover.
