Touring the three most famous valleys of the Albanian Alps, returning across Komani Lake in a small boat. Historical sites and the cities of Lezha, Shkodra, Kruja, Durres and Tirana are visited during the tour. The tour is named after the Goddess of Beauty, who was worshipped by the Illyrian tribe of Liburnes. During July and August, this tour includes invigorating swims in a basin formed where the river Shala spills into the lake.
On the road from Shkodra towards Vermosh, one can only be amazed at how often the landscape changes in small distances, a continuing marvel throughout the tour.
Sleeping and eating in these remote villages is a unique experience. Hiking/trekking guided by locals, in addition to our own professionals, is of moderate to challenging levels and horses/mules accompany the daily trips. 2-3 lunches are enjoyed in picturesque outdoor venues.
During navigation on Komani Lake, the transformation of ancient valleys into fjords presents a natural marvel.
The optimal number of participants is 10-15: upon request, we offer tours for one person, a couple or a family.
These tours and excursions offer unique and economic opportunities to support and sustain the small local businesses that are working to preserve and protect the Albanian natural treasures by sharing them with caring, respectful visitors.
