3-Day Theth and Valbonë Hiking Tour

Self-Guided • 3 Days • 185 € per person

Intro

The Theth and Valbonë Three-Day Hiking Trip is one of our most popular hiking excursions. Join us and you will see why!

Declared a national park in 1966, the Theth National Park covers an area of 2,630 hectares. The river Theth runs through the park creating an enchanting landscape that is one of a kind to see in Albania. Located near to the city of Shkodër and the North Albania Tours office, a hike through this national park will 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. (Please note: this hike is only available during warm months, from mid-May till mid-November)
