Day 1 Tirana – Komani Lake – Rural Village – Shala River
Day 1 Tirana – Komani Lake – Rural Village – Shala River

A place this spectacular can’t stay a secret for long: Shala River has its springs from melting snow of the Albanian Alps. This explains the transparency of its waters that create a vivid palette of colors while running through wild mountains.
This tour departs very early in the morning from Tirana. You will depart towards northern Albania with a shared transportation provided by our partner. As you take the turn from the main road to Vau i Dejës, the area becomes more rural with fewer cars but more wild nature and amazing landscapes. You will get on a small local boat (this destination is only reachable by boat) that will take us through Komani Lake offering spectacular views of the Albanian Alps, waterfalls, rural villages and wild forests. You will make the turn to Shala River after 30 minutes. Once you arrive at the destination deep in the Albanian Alps you will have some free time enjoy the view. The ones that are interested can explore the nature around the area. Shala river is one of the most adventurous and wildest places to hike. If you are brave enough, don’t forget to bring your swimming suits, as some of you will dare to swim in this paradise so-called the Albanian Thailand. Overnight in a traditional guesthouse (may have shared bathroom) by Komani Lake in a small rural village.
