Self-Guided • 3 Days • €175 Per Person
The Theth and Valbonë Three-Day Hiking Trip is one of our most popular hiking excursions. Come and see why this adventure creates positive memories that last a lifetime.
Declared a national park in 1966, the Theth National Park covers an area of 2,630 hectares. Winding through the park, the river Theth has created a lush, green, and inviting landscape that is a must-see when visiting Albania. Located near to the city of Shkodër and the North Albania Tours office, a hike through this national park is certain to calm and refresh your body and soul.
This is a self guided tour. We arrange the transfers, food, accommodation and cruise along Koman Lake. We also provide a map to guide you from Theth to Valbonë, however the trail is very well marked. And you will meet other hikers along the way. There is only one trail from Theth to Valbonë.
If a 3 day trip is too long for you, consider the Theth National Park Day Trip. (Note : this hike is only available during warm months, mid May – mid November)
