The tour departs from Choose Balkans Office. On request (at least 12 hours before tour departure) we can pick you up at your hotel in Tirana free of charge.
Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Komani Lake, Koman Albania
Our journey towards Komani Lake begins early in the morning at 05:00 am from Tirana. As we take the turn from the main road to Vau i Dejës the area becomes more rural, with fewer cars but more wild nature and amazing landscapes. We will stop for a short break by Vau i Dejes Lake, a beautiful and tranquil setting.

At 09:00 we get on a small local boat (this destination is only reachable by boat) that will take us through Komani Lake offering spectacular views of the Albanian Alps, waterfalls, rural villages and wild forests. It is considered by many as an exotic experience combined with the unmatched hospitality of the locals. We arrive at Berisha village at about 10:30 (somewhere at middle of the Lake). Here is where we begin our kayaking exploration of the area along the lake. Overnight in a traditional guesthouse by the lake Koman in a small village called Berishë.

Day 3: Valbona - Theth

Stop At: Valbona Pass, Rruga Azem Hajdari, Bajram Curri Albania
Trekking to Theth from Valbona would be an intense day as the walk takes about 6 to 8 hours (about 1050m elevation) in a remote terrain, nevertheless unquestionably worthy! The Valbona pass to Theth offers a spectacular view of the Balkan Peaks and “Bjeshket e Nemuna”. When reaching on the top of Valbona Pass you will experience a serious shot of adrenaline.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Shkodra Lake, Shiroka, Shkoder Albania
We will experience local transport riding through a steep sneaky hillside reaching up to 900 meters at Qafa e Thores. They say this is the spot with the best picture – perfect view of the Albanian Alps. The elaborated zig-zags road through the mountainous terrain smoothens down little by little taking us towards Shkodra Lake.
