  • Beautiful place surrounded by mountains. Good place for hikes and photography lovers. Is not so easy to get there and sometimes communication with locals is difficult, not all of them speak English and not all of them are so nice, but at the end they help anyways.
  • Valbona can be reached from Shkodra via the Lake Koman Ferry and a connecting furgon (minibus) from Fierzë (400 lekë, one hour). Or, it can be reached by furgon from Bajram Curri town (200 lekë, 45 minutes).
  • Nice walk from Valbone to Theth. It takes 6hours and I would recommend it only for experienced hikers.
  • Beautiful place,amazing nature
  • Valbona Valley National park is one of the most beautiful in Albania. The nature, in the park is wild and amazing.
