Lake Bovilla is one of the most amazing hidden gems in Albania. This reservoir provides most of the drinking water for the capital city of Albania- Tirana, and is located around 25 km from the city. If you look around, you will see the green peaks of the mountains that give the lake its astonishing view. You will see in the west the mountains of Gamti and Brari, as well as the mountain of Dajti to the southeast. Lake Bovilla has nature that has been barely touched by human hands where there is plenty of wildlife roaming around, not to mention the breathtaking panoramic views it provides! A private guided tour that starts with picking you up from your accommodation at 9:00 am and start driving towards Bovilla Lake. Half of the drive will be asphalt, and the other half will be off road until we will get closer to the mountains where you will be serenaded with the views of the mountains. We will get to Bovilla’s lake dam and start our hike to the top. The hike is not intensive and very enjoyable because the views get better with each step! It takes around 35 minutes to get to the top, but on our way we will have a break at Bovilla Restaurant for a coffee/cold drink and enjoy the amazing view. After that we will head to a little more challenging short hike, to the very top of “Bovilla Balcony” to enjoy the breathtaking view. You will have some time to take photos and to eat some food that you can bring with you (there is also the option to eat at Bovilla Restaurant and try some Albanian traditional cuisine). This will conclude our tour and we will drive back to your hotel.
