Komani Lake, Koman

Created when the Drini Valley was dammed, Komani Lake rests in deep gorges between the towns of Komani and Fierza; two ferries travel between the towns on the lake. The boats get packed with visitors, locals, and even animals as residents move between the two towns on their daily commute. Try to grab a seat on a ferry close to the water to appreciate the tall cliffs on either side. The cliffs' jagged faces are dotted with trees and brush growth, but the rest of the shore is sparsely populated. Book a private boat tour through one of the ferry companies for a personalized look at the lake and its environs. Some private tours even include a stop at the captain's family home for a meal and a trip to the best swimming area. Buy your ferry ticket at your hotel and the ferry company will pick you up from the hotel's door. A second lake connects to Komani and goes near the Kosovo border; before a highway was built, the lake was the only way to get to there.

  • The ferry trip of 2,5 hours is breath taking. You’ll see the most stunning views of mountains and nature.  more »
  • The cruise was organized by Our Albania with the Golem from the Lady's. A wonderful adventure, cruise reminiscent of Norwegian fjords cruises. We left with a Goal toward Shkodra, views of the calłej breathtaking route. We reached to the mouth of the river Shalla, there we had a long stop and lunch. Great views and impressions can not describe, this is a must see!!! That's why all I recommend these party, is only possible with that Office, that great detail organized, including pilot pania Justyna Lunch also was a wonderful, Oh this kozina!!!!! pride and the crayfish home yum, yum

  • We did the Shkoder-Komani trip with our own vehicle. The road is quite long because we can't drive fast. However it is doable with a car that is not 4 x 4. It takes about 1 h 30 of Shkoder. Before the port, there are guards who tell us to park in the parking lot, then there's 2.5 kilometres to walk to the departure. We could park in the parking lot at the entrance of the port as people Park on the side of the road, that we would avoid making the ride back in the storm. We made the trip with Beshka and there is not that much room on the boat so we settled as we can, even if it isn't comfortable. We booked on the internet but no document has been requested. Apparently getting the vehicle to book several months in advance. The ship's departure takes place at 9:30 so he must get up early (the boat leaves with a few minutes late often)! The boat ride is beautiful, the landscapes are breathtaking, well worth the money! For the drive back, we had a violent thunderstorm and to do attention to rockfall-online a car has received and was damaged (fortunately no injuries).

  • Caught a private boat for 4.5 on the water with lunch included. Didn't see another single soul on the water the entire time. Absolutely magical. Food was incredible, every view was beathtaking. Would definitely do it again.
  • Best trip for mountain nature fresh air best food dratition local place
  • Beautiful way to travel, though road to komani side is a little worse for wear (currently being redone I think though). Ferry port is a little out of Feiri but easy enough to find from signs. Both sides have cafes but no food on boat. Might need a jumper if you want to stay outside even in nice weather!
  • The best boat ride in the world! Stop off at the ferry port for a coffee around a woodburner before stepping foot on to one of many tiny taxi boats that provide transit for the locals living way out in the mountains. Fascinating to witness such a wonderfully unique lifestyle.
  • The trip with the boat is wonderful and a must-do!
