Biodiversity Tour

GUIDED • Full Day • €85 PER PERSON

Intro

Biodiversity is one of the most important things in the world we live in. Here at North Albania Tours, we have specially put together two tours with a local Professor to showcase the beauty and variety of the flora and fauna of our region.

With our specialist guiding you, with more than 22 years of experience and study, he will help you to learn about the many animals and plants that call Shkodra Lake or the Taraboshi Mountains their home.

There will be a small lecture style introduction near the lake to begin the Lake Biodiversity Tour, and after there will be opportunities to see many different fish, amphibians, mammals, and birds! There is also an option to take a boat onto Shkodra Lake in order to increase animal viewing.

For the Mountain Biodiversity Tour, our specialist will guide guests on a hike into the Taraboshi Mountains and explain the flora in detail, while keeping an eye out for the birds that nest and reside at altitude.

Visible animals are naturally subject to change depending on the season. For example, Spring brings many birds to the region, such as the Bee-Eater, Yellow Wagtail, Hoopoe, and many more!
