Fresh ORGANIC food, aqua, and long walks. Simply find the inner peace within us all. Prices average, not to mention low. Starting from €10 per person including breakfast. In homes, or houses features. I recommend it strongly.
We knew Lake Komani would be stunning and it was. What surprised us was the benefit of travelling on the Dragobia (6am from Fierze, 9am from Komani). While slower than the car ferries..it offers a fas... more »

If you don't want to get to Theth, is interesting to get to the point of the Hill more high to 1800. Also in Cerem, worth to the village and rest or go for a swim in the river. A pity the park filled with waste.
Valbona Valley is absolutely one of the most beautiful, fantastic part of North of Albania 🇦🇱. The natural beauty of this amazing Albania is undoubtedly breathtaking. High mountains, Valbona River with cristal water, the valley are things that if you visit this area you can get an unforgettable experience. It is an attractive site. A lot of tourists visit this area where they get not only a good hotels , good food but and great hospitality.
Valbona is probably one of the best National Parks. It reminded me a lot of Yosemite National Park in California but on a much grander scale. The range of mountains seem to never end and everywhere you look is amazing. There's trails to hike one camping sites. Some fo the trails aren't marked as well so a guide is recommended.

The Valbona River flows throughout the Valbona Valley to the Drin River.
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.
Incredible place. Must hike Valbonë - Theth!!! Awesome Awesome day hike
