This is how your trip will look like:
Day 1: Tirane – Shkoder
Your tour will start in the morning in Tirana or at the hotel pick up, from there you will be driven to Shkodra, the largest city in the north. Here visit the Rozafa Castle and take in the superb view of Shkodra Lake surrounded by mountains.
After the visit in Shkodra, you will be driven through the picturesque National Park of Theth. Then stop at Qafë Thore, a mountain pass that offers spectacular views of the Theth Valley.
On arrival in Theth you will spend the day in and around the area enjoying the charm of the village known for its stunning nature and traditional wooden-tiled houses. Depending on how you are feeling, you can walk or be driven downhill from the guest-house and visit the attractions near the village. There will be a chance to visit the local church and the Kulla e Ngujimit, the tower used in the past by men as a shelter from those involved in vendetta known as 'blood feud'.
Day 2 - Theth - Blue Eye
On your second day in Theth you will visit some of the most beautiful natural attractions Albania has to offer. After either a 30 minute off-road drive or 2.5 hour walk, you will visit the famous Blue Eye, a natural phenomenon caused by the extremely cold water that flows up from deep within the ground into the warmer waters of the river.
After some time at the Blue eye, visit the waterfall and the Canyon of Theth. This day of exploring nature and enjoying the outdoors will have you ready for the wonderful dinner and accommodations that await us back at the guest house.
Day 3 - Tirana
Spend the half day in Theth. Afterwards return to Tirana. Your travel will be filled with beautiful landscapes of the Theth valley during the way back. Your adventure will finish in Tirana.
