about auron expeditions

Auron Expeditions was founded in 1994 during a time when only adventurous travelers dare to visit. Auron Tare was instrumental in establishing Butrint National Park which today is considered the “gem of country” as well as one of the World Heritage Sites of UNESCO. Today there are only two World Heritage sites that exist in Albania, Butrint National Park and the City of Gjirokastra.

The team at Auron Expeditions has spent several years facilitating a number of special interest groups coming to Albania. One of the first expeditions organized was for Smithsonian Museum. Auron Expeditions reputation of organizing unique tours and special events while always leaving their clients with the ‘best experience’ possible when visiting the country. They have worked with Save Venice Foundation, National Geographic, British Museum, Institute of Nautical Archaeology, Religious Science and Environment Foundation, UNESCO, World Bank, Oak Foundation, Packard Humanity, and USA National Park Service, to name a few. They are actively involved with developing sustainable programs with organizations such as BCTV and developing “voluntour” projects in the south. “We strive to be more than just another Tour operator, our mission is to bring the proper type of tourism into Albania as well as learn from the mistakes that other countries struggle with today.”

Recommended by publications such as Conde Nast Traveler, Herald Tribune, The Independent, Daily Mail, CNN Traveler, New York Times “our tours are focused on the interest of our guests as well as introducing the cultural and natural beauty of the country. We strongly believe that today’s travelers seek a purpose by exploring a new culture, discovering the past or experiencing the beauty of a site” states Auron Tare.
