DescriptionDay 1 Tirana / Shkoder – Theth Our journey towards the Albanian Alps begins at 06:00 am in the morning. Our tour leader will come and pick you up at your hotel in Tirana or Shkoder. As we drive along the way towards Northern Albania, you will be amazed by beautiful landscapes; wild fields, rivers, Shkodra Lake and rugged untouched mountains. From Shkoder we will experience local transport riding at around 7:30 am. As we take the turn from the main road to Theth the area becomes more rural, with fewer cars but more wild nature and amazing landscapes. Due to its favorable position this area is famous for cultivating medicinal herbs, and if you are lucky to travel in May – June you would be amazed by the pretty and aromatic fields of lavender, making you feel like you are in Provence (France). On the way to the top, we will pass through a steep sneaky hillside reaching up to 1700 meters above sea level at Qafa e Thores. They say this is the spot with the best picture – perfect view of the Albanian Alps. We arrive at our Guesthouse in Theth. After resting a bit, we visit the old Church and the “Lock in” Tower (symbol of Theth) and its fascinating story in centuries. Overnight in a guesthouse in Theth. Day 2 Theth – Grunas Waterfall – Blue Eye – Theth – Shkoder / Tirana Waking up with such a magnificent view of the Albanian Alps will make you want to stay longer, but after breakfast we will begin our hiking adventure to Grunas Waterfall (about 1-hour hike one way). Grunas Waterfall is a curtain of white water that comes over the grey rocks as if it were being poured from a bucket that never empties. The water tumbles down the hillside in a series of mini-waterfalls. After, we will continue our hiking journey towards the natural wonder of the so-called “Blue Eye of Theth”. The hike lasts around 3 hours one way. The Blue Eye is formed by the erosion of the rocks by the water that descends from melting snow of the Albanian Alps. You will not be able to take your eyes off the iridescent glow of green and blue colours of this marvel of nature, inviting you to dive in. Our driver will come and pick you up in Nderlysaj, taking us back through a steep sneaky hillside reaching Qafa e Thores. The elaborated zig-zags road through the mountainous terrain smoothens down little by little taking us towards Shkoder or Tirana. You will return home full of the wonders of Albania with a new sense of self excitement to share with those around you.
