Itinerary

Day
1

Tirana - Lake Komani - Valbona

The journey to Lake Komani starts early in the morning, you will be picked up at 5am. First stop is Vau i Dejës, a lake north of Tirana. On the way, you'll notice that the road is getting quieter and quieter, and the landscapes become more impressive. Once you arrive at the lake, hop on a local van to Komani Dam. The road here is bumpy, but the views along the way provide a distraction. At 9am, you board a ferry to cross Lake Komani. It is considered by many to be an unforgettable boat ride not to be missed. Around noon, you will arrive at the Fierza dam, where you will be picked up and driven to your guesthouse in Valbona. From your guesthouse, you can take a short walk on your own initiative to explore the area.
