Itinerary
Koman Lake, Valbona and Theth in 3 Days from Tirana

Day 1Tirana – Koman Lake – Valbona

We will leave Tirana at 5:00 am to drive toward Koman Lake when the ferry departs at 9:00 am to the other side of the lake, Fierza. Since 1985 this manmade lake is the only way how locals who live in the surroundings to get in touch with the modern world.
Driving from Fierza to Valbona will needs around 45 minutes, passing through Bajram Curri, the municipally of the area. Lunch break in Valbona and hiking in Kukaj, a very remote area in Valbona Valley surroundings when we will see how the people do their living.

Day 2Hiking from Valbona – Theth

Also called “the Big Day” of the tour, we now set off on the thrilling hike from Valbona to Theth following the ancient path that the locals have been using for years. Back in the day, it was only possible to travel from Valbona to Shkoder on foot taking two full days of walking!
Walking on this path we will pass through the oldest part of the village where people are still living in their more than 100-year-old stone houses that are remarkable remnants of the past. The 18-km trek offers spectacular views of long rocky valleys and lush green forests. We stop for lunch at one of the traditional cafés along the way but do stock up on snacks just in case. After trekking for about 7-8 hours we arrive in Theth that will for sure amaze us with its unique nature, history, and traditions including the village’s symbol, the Lock-In Tower. Overnight and dinner at the guesthouse.

Day 3Theth – Shkoder – Tirana

After breakfast at the Guesthouse, the” Gurnas” Waterfall is the next attraction. Around 45 minutes walk from the center of the village the round to their pass through most of the village into soft hilly terrain.
Living Theth behind and driving for around 3 hours we will reach Shkoder, the biggest city of the Albanian North. Free time in Shkoder and return in Tirana in the evening where it is the end of our tour.

Solo tengo palabras de agradecimiento para Andi y su equipo de Go As Local por los 3 inolvidables días que pasé recorriendo el norte de Albania.
Los paisajes son impresionantes, el trekking de Valbona a Theth una maravilla y Andi un guía de 10. Se conoce el país a la perfección y sabe de todo.
