Itinerary

Day 1 Tirana – Shkodra – Theth
Day 1 Tirana – Shkodra – Theth

This tour towards the Albanian Alps departs from Tirana very early in the morning. As you drive along the way towards Northern Albania, you will be amazed by beautiful landscapes; wild fields, rivers, Shkodra Lake and rugged untouched mountains. As you take the turn from the main road to Theth the area becomes more rural, with fewer cars but more wild nature and amazing landscapes. Due to its favorable position this area is famous for cultivating medicinal herbs, and if you are lucky to travel in May – June you would be amazed by the pretty and aromatic fields of lavender making you feel like you are in Provence (France). On the way to the top, you will pass through a steep sneaky hillside reaching up to 1700 meters above sea level at Qafa e Thores. They say this is the spot with the best picture – perfect view of the Albanian Alps. Head towards the Guesthouse in Theth. After resting a bit, you can visit the old Church and the “Lock in” Tower (symbol of Theth) and its fascinating story in centuries. Overnight in a guesthouse in Theth.

Day 2 Theth – Blue Eye - Theth
Day 2 Theth – Blue Eye - Theth

Your hiking tour of Theth continues to the natural wonder the so called “Blue Eye of Theth”. The hike lasts 3 to 4 hours one way. The Blue Eye is formed by the erosion of the rocks by the water that descends from melting snow of the Albanian Alps. You will keep your eyes peeled from the iridescent glow of greens and blues colours of this marvel of nature, inviting you to dive in. Last but not least, if you are brave enough, don’t forget to bring your swimming suits with you as some of us will dare to swim in these cold crystal-clear waters. Overnight in a guesthouse in Theth.

Day 3 Theth – Grunas Waterfall – Theth – Tirana
Day 3 Theth – Grunas Waterfall – Theth – Tirana

Waking up with such a magnificent view of the Albanian Alps will make you want to stay longer, however, after breakfast hike from Theth to Grunas Waterfall (about 1-hour hike). A curtain of white water comes over the grey rocks as if it were being poured from a bucket that never empties. The water tumbles down the hillside in a series of mini-waterfalls. At around midday get ready to get back to Tirana. The elaborated zig-zags road through the mountainous terrain smoothens down little by little taking us towards Shkodra Lake. You will return home full of the wonders of Albania, with a new sense of self-excitement to share with those around you.
