Touring two of the most beautiful valleys of the Albanian Alps, passing through Komani Lake in a small boat. Historical sites and the cities of Lezha, Shkodra, Kruja and Tirana will be visited during the tour. The tour is named after an ancient Illirian castle of the area and, during July and August, will include swims in a basin formed where the river Shala spills into Komani Lake.
Moving from Shkodra in the direction of Vermosh, one can only be amazed at how the landscape drammatically changes every few kilometers.
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 will accompany the adventurers. 2-3 lunches will be enjoyed in picturesque wilderness venues.
Navigating Komani Lake, one can admire the transformation of ancient valleys into fjords.
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.
