DAY 01:  PICK UP APT IN THE MORNING – KEPI I RODONIT – SHKODER 

After pick up in Tirana airport, our Jeep Safari will continue to the Gjiri Lalsit forest. The adventure begins where the Jeeps will drive at the sand terrain and inside the forest. Then we will drive in an asphalt road at Kepi Rodonit to visit the military bunkers build in communism time. On this site we will have a brake of 30 minutes. After the short brake, we will start the jeep adventure with off road driving at the remote villages of Lalez area and afterwards taking the asphalt road of Fushe-Kruje. From there we drive to Shkodra, the largest city in the north. Here we visit the Rozafa Castle and take in the superb view of Shkodra Lake sur-rounded by mountains. 

Dinner and accommodations are in Shkodra.

 

DAY 02:  SHKODER – THETH – SHKODER

After breakfast we drive through the picturesque National Park of Theth. Once we arrive in Theth we spend the day in and around the area of Theth enjoying the charm of the village known for its stunning nature and traditional wooden-tiled houses. After either a 30 minute off-road drive or 2.5 hour walk, we visit the famous Blue Eye, a natural phenomenon caused by the extremely cold water that flows up from deep within the ground into the warmer waters of the river. After some time at the Blue eye, we visit the waterfall and the Canyon of Theth. Late afternoon turn back in Shkodra for accommodation and overnight.

Dinner and accommodations are in Shkodra.

 

DAY 03: SHKODER - KOMAN LAKE– VALBONE   

This morning after an early breakfast we make our way to Koman to take the ferry to Fierza in the Tropoja region bordering Kosovo. The building of a hydropower station on Albania’s biggest river, Drin, has created the artificial lake of Koman, with a wonderful opal green water colour, while surrounded by high rocky mountains. If you didn’t know that you were in North Albania you could very well assume you were in a Norwegian Fjord, as the panoramas of this two hour navigation are simply breathless. After getting off the ferry there will be a 2 hour drive to arrive at Valbona valley which stands almost back to back with Theth, which we visited the previous day. Afternoon includes a moderate hike through the Valbona Valley National Park to the waterfall of Valbona. 

Dinner and accommodations are in the Valbona guesthouse.
