ALBANIA / Albania

Abstract

The lack of economic and educational opportunities in rural areas of Albania has led to high levels of urban migration. The Albania Rafting Group (ARG) hopes to develop tourism year round and have the benefits from tourism improve the rural economy. In partnership with the Ministry of Sport and Education, ARG is building an eco-adventure park in the Skrapar region in southern Albania. Our project, through a free listing exercise and survey, identified adventure activities to make the resort an attractive destination. We provided detailed plans for a ropes course and an obstacle course that included information on elements, location, safety, and construction.
