About
Komani lake and Shala river have quite simply been missed for a long period of time. There is no better way to explore the Albanian Alps than by ferry, boat, and kayak. This two-days tour offers a serious shot of adrenaline as we head into some of the most rural areas with jaw-dropping sceneries of Northern Albania.

This two day trip was well worth the journey to get there. It's incredible to be able to visit such remote locations only accessible by boat. Surrounded by an abundance of breathtaking scenery and waking up with nothing but the sounds of nature was such a privilege to experience. 100% worth it. What an incredible adventure, disconnected to connect with nature.

I took a day trip of the Shala River and Komani Lake with Choose Balkans and had a wonderful time. I communicated with the team for several weeks before my trip and they were super quick to answer my questions by WhatsApp. The day trip was led by an awesome guide Valentin, who was energetic, knowledgeable and a skilled guide. While the drive to this location is super long (go for the overnight trip!), Valentin kept it engaging and fun. My favorite part of this trip was the small boat ride up the river. I felt like I was in the set of Jurassic Park or boating in Thailand. Such a beautiful spot!! The cold drinks provided by the agency and help with a dinner reservation were added touches that enhanced this great day trip.
