Tour Overview

Day 1

Tirana – Komani Lake – Valbona Valley National Park

Our journey towards Komani Lake begins early in the morning at 05:00 am. Our tour guide will come and pick you up at your hotel in Tirana. As we 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. We will stop for a short break by Vau i Dejes Lake, a beautiful and tranquil setting, and from here on we will experience local transport over bumpy roads but with a great view. At 09:00 we get on a ferry that will take us through Komani Lake offering spectacular views of the Albanian Alps, waterfalls, rural villages and wild forests. It is considered by many as an exotic experience combined with the unmatched hospitality of the locals. Our next destination will be Valbona Valley National Park. We will arrive in Valbona around 13:00 and after a delicious traditional lunch (lunch break will be around noon on all three days of the tour), we explore the area and admire the so-called Crown of the Albanian Alps. Overnight in a guesthouse in Valbona.
Day 2

Valbona – Maja e Rosit – Valbona

The hiking tour of the Albanian Alps gets more intense during the second day. Our hiking objective is "Maja e Rosit" one of the Balkan Peaks. On the way to the Maja e Rosit Peak we pass through Kukaj. The trekking takes about 3 to 4 hours on the way up and about 3 on the way back to Valbona Valley. The view from Maja e Rosit offers a spectacular view of Valbona Valley and the Accursed Mountains. We will enjoy a picnic lunch from this breath-taking corner of the world. Overnight in a guesthouse in Valbona.
Day 3

Valbona – Gjakova (Kosovo) – Tirana

Waking up with such a magnificent view of the Albanian Alps will make you want to stay longer. After breakfast, we will have a few more hours to explore Valbona Valley before we go to Gjakova (Kosovo). In Gjakova, we will visit the old medieval bazaar and enjoy a traditional lunch. We drive back towards Tirana (about 3 to 4-hour drive) through the mountainous terrain of the Albanian North. We will arrive in Tirana in the late afternoon.
