Itinerary

Day 1: Tirane-Theth

Pass By: Lezhe Castle, Castle, Lezhe Albania
Our guide will pick you up early at the hotel in Tirana. Our first stop will be Lezha. Lezha is located in north Albania and is a region with thousands of years of history. In Lezha the League of Lezha was created under the order of Gjergj Kastrioti Skanderbeg.

After Lezha we are going toward Thethi.

Stop At: Theth National Park, Rruga Nikgjonaj Rruga Nikgjonaj, Nr.18, Theth 4009 Albania
This unique mountain village easily has the most dramatic setting in Albania.

To go in Thethi we need to drive through, Thore Pass. It is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 1.685m above the sea level, located the Albanian Alps. After that, we are in Thethi village and we are going to the guest house where the lunch is going to be served. After lunch, we are going to see the Tower of Thethi and the Church.

The dinner will be with local food and a glass of raki, maybe two or three.

Duration: 1 day

Accommodation included: We are going to stay in a traditional Guesthouse and try local food

Day 2: Thethi-Tirane

Stop At: Blue Eye of Theth, Kaprre Pusi i Zi, Syri i Kalter, Theth 4009 Albania
After breakfast, we will start our trip to go to Grunasi waterfall, one of the most exceptional natural beauties in the Albanian Alps. To go to Grunasi waterfall we need to walk for about 1 hour. The next destination will be the Blue Eye. The location of this beauty is down on Kaprre, one of the most beautiful villages in the Alps. To reach the Blue Eye you must pass one of the rare beauties that are the Grunas Canyon of Theth. To go to Blue Eye we need to walk 2 hours. For the bravest, it is time to swim. I said that because the water is very cold over there.

It is Time to go to Shkodra.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Rozafa Castle, Rozafa, Shkoder Albania
In Shkodra we are going to stop for a short visit and for lunch near the lake. Shkodra, the traditional center of the Gheg cultural region, is one of the oldest cities in Europe and arguably the most attractive urban center in Albania. The ancient Rozafa Fortress has stunning views over Lake Shkodra, while the pastel-painted buildings in the Old Town have a distinct Italian ambiance.

After the visit in Shkodra it is time to come back in Tirana.

Duration: 2 hours
