1 Reviews
Tours Reseller exclusions Nature & adventure Outdoor sports

Shala River and Komani Lake offer a serious shot of adrenaline as we head into some of the most rural areas with jaw-dropping sceneries of Northern Albania.


  • Shala River is described as the 'Albanian Thailand'
  • Shala River, sourced from the melting snow of the Albanian Alps, is a hidden gem
  • Visitors can swim in its pristine waters


A place this spectacular can’t stay a secret for long: Shala River has its springs from melting snow of the Albanian Alps. This explains the clarity of its waters that create a vivid palette of colors while running through wild mountains. Our journey towards Shala River begins early in the morning. At 05:00 am, our tour leader will come and pick you up at your hotel in Tirana or Shkoder. As we take the turn from the main road to Vau i Dejës, the area becomes more rural with fewer cars but more wild nature and amazing landscapes. We will stop for a short break by Vau i Dejes Lake, a beautiful and tranquil setting, and experience local transport over a bumpy road but with an amazing view. We will get on a small local boat (this destination is only reachable by boat) that will take us through Komani Lake offering spectacular views of the Albanian Alps, waterfalls, rural villages and wild forests. We will make the turn to Shala River after 30 minutes. You will have some free time to enjoy the view. The ones that are interested can go explore the area. Shala river is one of the most adventurous and wildest places to hike. If you are brave enough, don’t forget to bring your swimming suits as some of us will dare to swim in this paradise so-called the Albanian Thailand. We will get back on the boat to Koman Lake. From here we drive back to Shkoder or Tirana after an unforgettable experience. You will return home with a new sense of self excitement to share with those around you.
