Description

Explore beautiful Theth, the last unexplored destination of Northern Albania. A traditional village that sits deep at the heart of the Albanian Alps. Situated at the end of a winding mountain road, Theth is home to just a few houses surrounded by looming mountain peaks and meadows full of wildflowers. Watch slow village life unfold, wander the roads with the hillside cows, and enjoy some of the most incredible views on a hike. Discover the landscape that rivals the Swiss Alps, with the dramatic peaks of the Accursed Mountains looking over the town and green fields filled with cows and goats. These lands carry a lot of history and legends, and even though they happened a long time ago, you can feel the presence of the past mixed with the present in the echoes and mighty sights of the mountains surrounding you. Visit Shkodra, one of the oldest cities in Albania that dates back to the 4th century B.C. It lies by the magnificent Shkodra's Lake, the biggest in the Balkans. It is also known as the city of bikes and is highly important in Albanian culture. Continue to the ancient Rozafa Fortress with stunning views over Lake Shkodra and pastel-painted Old Town buildings with a distinct Italian ambiance. Discover the Albanian Epos's fascinating legends and how they relate to the castle's history. Marvel at the city, famous for its architecture, sense of humor, and friendly atmosphere. Shkodra is one of the most crucial city centers of Albania. Discover the city's religious diversity, where one can find a Catholic Church, Orthodox Church, and Muslim Mosque next to each other.
