Bovilla Lake

Hiking in Tirana, in one of the most picturesque areas where the deep blue of the lake is mixed with the grey of the rocks and green of the Flora around the area. Located around 15 Kilometres from Tirana, this artificial Lake is one of the main suppliers of drinkable water in Tirana. With a spectacular surrounding arena, the terrain is compounded also by 4 areas of fauna and vegetation.

What to Expect

The hike around lake Bovilla and Gamti mountain is divided into two main parts. The first part starting from the lake is characterized by a slow, low gradient ascending. For the hikers with less experience and not in the best fitness conditions usually, the journey ends before getting to the peak of Gamti. 

Continuing to the peak the trail will get quite steep and narrow, but the view totally worthy while reaching the top. 

  • Maximum Altitude for the Easy Hike 620 m
  • Time for the Easy Hike - 40 minutes
  • Maximum Altitude for the Long Hike - 1246 m
  • Around 3 hours hike to the peak

Tirana to Bovilla Lake

We will start at 9:00 with Hotel Pick Up and driving toward Bovilla Lake, located around a 20 Km drive from Tirana. The Trail toward the Gamti peak starts near the level of the lake. Depends on the physical conditions, we will decide to complete the long trail to the peak or the shorter one to the “Balcony of Bovilla” offering spectacular views of the lake. 

Free time for lunch in one of the Local Farm-style restaurants with stunning views of the lake. 

Return in Tirana.
