About
A place this spectacular can’t stay a secret for long: Shala River has its springs from melting snow of the Albanian Alps. This explains the transparency of its waters that create a vivid palette of colors while running through wild mountains.

Amazing Trip of Komani Lake and Shala River
Jul 2021
It was altogether a new experience, 5 hours drive from Tirana to Komani Lake and then 1 hour 15 minutes boat ride to Shala River, perfect combination of sight seen from road and then from boat ride crossing the excellent view of green mountains, reaching Shala River.
Excellent arrangement, professional guys, highly recommended

It was one day trip with Brikena Shamitaz the tour leader. And it was great
Everything was good. From pick up time until last minute. They are kind and helpful while the way to Shala river and the river itself is wonderful. Great family Accommodated us for lunch and had nice time with them like a second family

Would love to do it again

Amazing
We booked a day tour Shkoder - Tirana.
The tour was amazing, everything that we needed to know was explained. The staff was very friendly and provided us with a lot of information before the trip.
We walked around the local streets of the city, visited the Bazaar, Caste of Rozafa, the Leaden Mosque and The Catholic church. We ended the trip by visiting Mes Bridge before heading back to Tirana.
For sure, we'll get back and try the other tours :)
Highly recommended.
