Water Body Nature / Park
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.

  • Impossible to give a single estimate for the accommodation and the crossing. Lodging, the only out of the tunnel, at the pier: 3star scarce. Not so much for the essential and minimalist room with en-suite bathroom that served the purpose, but rather for the cost of dinner. Luckily I had asked in advance the price of each dish! The meat was a thick slice of ham, tough as a shoe sole ... Delicious breakfast, brought a coffee only, for the second I had come down to take it! MAH. A real pleasure, however, spend the evening in complete tranquillity and the night at the edge of the Lake-dam, see stars and black outlines of bumps. A night when the wind seemed to take take away ... Very pleasant and adventurous. The crossing, with the Rozafa Ferry, departing at 9, lasted nearly 4 hours, seems tað. But the show was a continuous succession of breathtaking views. Truly SHUM BUKUR, very nice.

  • Must-see Perfect lake!!! No comments - see foto
  • Fantastico Place Beautiful nature 😍😍
  • amazing place with restaurant and hotel. we had a wonderful time here (and on the ferry). the staff is great: very friendly and super helpful.
  • Fjords of Albanian lakes. The nature is unspoiled in these parts.
  • This is an amazing boat trip along the artificial lake. It runs frequently through the summer, but is less regular into the autumn when the water level falls.
