The Trails of Albanian Alps is a self-guided walking holiday designed for intrepid travellers eager to discover the Albanian Accursed Mountains’ beauty at their own pace. The Albanian Alps offer breathtaking natural scenery and the best hiking through some of Europe’s last untamed natural locations and wilderness. From your starting point at historic Shkoder on Lake Skadar, you’ll have the chance to visit Rozafa Fortress. Your journey to the heart of the Accursed Mountains is an integral part of the Albanian Alps experience and includes a ride on the Koman Ferry (considered one of the world’s great boat journeys). 

The tour offers the chance to visit two of the most spectacular valleys: Valbona and Theth National parks. Both are dominated by towering mountains and include a walk through the Valbona Pass, along an old mule trail with breathtaking panoramas of the Accursed mountains. There’s also a hike to the Peja Pass in Theth with spectacular views of Mount Arapit, the “Albanian Matterhorn”, with its magnificent 800m sheer rock face. Included in the itinerary is a chance to visit the Albanian Blood Feud tower in Theth and the Blue Eye karst spring. The Trails of Albanian Alps hikes include rugged mountain terrain and take you through beautiful mountain valleys, alpine meadows, and remote villages surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Albanian Alps. The return journey includes a scenic drive over the Terthoria Pass to the lowlands and onto Albania’s capital Tirana for some sightseeing.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrival IN Albania

Your driver will welcome you at the airport in Tirana or Podgorica. You can gather first impressions while transferring to the hotel close to Shkodra’s centre. If the weather allows it, you have the choice to swim at the Balkans’ biggest lake or visit Rozafa Castle. Learn about its legend and enjoy fabulous views which excite your curiosity for the days of travel through the Albanian Alps. In the city, the cafés burst with people who flock for a stroll in the pedestrian area. Lined with bourgeoisie townhouses, a reminder of the city’s rich past, it has a certain Italian atmosphere. Immerse in the bazaar’s buzz at the Marubi photo library in Albania’s past, visit the museum, or enjoy an espresso with the locals. When daylight fades, you can choose between restaurants that offer carefully crafted traditional meals. On the next day, you are heading off to the Albanian Alps!
