  • Day1
    The journey begins at noon, immediately after arriving at Tirana airport. We drive to Shkodra, one of the oldest inhabited cities in Albania with an over 2400-years old history. Numerous people, countries and cultures have left their traces on this city of culture. Many places, sights, monuments, memorials, statues and ruins bear witness of this eventful history. After the city tour, dinner in a traditional restaurant "A la carte". Overnight in a hotel in Shkodra. Wt 2 h. (-/-/D)
    Shkodra , the centre of north Albania.
  • Day2
    After breakfast drive towards Theth up to the "Buni i Thores", where the hike of the day begins. From here the view in almost all directions is very appealing. The trail goes over the ridge of the mountain, mainly through woods, to the bridge of Kapre. The mountainous lake and the waterfall of Kapre with its ice-cold water are located here. We will walk over the bridge and then through a visible path over rocks to Ndërlysë. The natural spectacle of water passing through the narrow karst rocks and forming strange-shaped sculptures is to be admired. The vehicle which will drive us to the village of Theth awaits us here. The accommodation is provided in a simple but clean guest house with shared rooms. In the evening will be discussed the program for the next few days. (B/L/D)

  • Day3
    The day begins with an introductory walk through the village to visit the church and the "Lock- in tower" (Kulla e ngujimit). Then begins a varied hike to the 30 meters high and one meter wide gorge of Grunas and the waterfall with the same name. Then, the walk will take northeast up to Theth - Ulaj, where we will continue through a scree path into the beech woods and along a trail invisible at times, which gets increasingly steep up to the field of Dënell, 1600m above sea level. It is surrounded by a chain of high mountains from where the view of the Valley of Theth is very beautiful. After a short break, we will follow the same route back to the guest house. (B/L/D)

  • Day4
    Starting from Thethi we follow the regular trail, which is relatively simple and runs at the right of the river bed. The path passes over small streams that end on Thethi river, up to the water source "Kroi i Shtrazës" in 930 m altitude, where the pine forest begins. The trail follows through the forest in the direction of Peja Pass (Qafa e Pejës), and becomes steeper. From Qafa e Pejës the view over the entire Thethi valley is breathtaking. The trail follows north with slight slope differences, on a firm grass and stony path and the descent continues in the direction of the Peçakeqi lake, from which the majestic fast vertical south wall of Arapi can be admired. After a short break, we follow the same path back to the guest house. (B/L/D)

  • Day5
    Today’s hiking starts early in the morning. The ascent is initially soft and runs through the woods, then becomes steeper and continues on scree to the Pass of Valbonë (Qafa e Valbonës). From here, at a height of 1812 meters above sea level, the view over the valleys of Valbonë and Theth is unique. The descent towards Valbonë is initially craggy, getting softer as we approach the valley and then going through an open forest. We will walk through the valley of Valbonë up to Rragam, which is at a height of 1130 m above sea level. Throughout the day, the horses will follow us carrying the luggage. Accommodation will be provided at the guest house in Rragam / Valbonë. (B/L/D)

  • Day6
    The path to the summit starts in Valbona and follows the north-western side of the mountain range up to the source "Buni i Ziçit", at 1495 meters altitude. The trail continues through the forest to the saddle, at height from 2,100 meters and then turns to the left toward to the upper south face of Çet Harusha that is covered by alpine meadows. On the mountain summit one can enjoy an impressive panorama over Valbona Valley and the village, several summits such as Jezerca, Rosi, Brijas and a nice view of the glacial valley of Kukaj. After a break on top, the descent follows from the same trail. (B/L/D)

  • Day7
    We will stop in Prizren, where we are having lunch and a short city tour. Afterwards we will continue the trip and arrive in Tirana at around 4:00 pm. Time for a break and then we take the cable car to Dajti mountain, part of Dajti National Park. The mountain has two main summits: Dajti (1,613 m) and Tujani (1531 m) north of it, both covered with dense beech forests. Dajti mountain is part of Krujë-Dajt mountain range, which rises abruptly from the coastal plain and is cut by deep river valleys. The mountain consists mainly of limestone. From the cable car terminal at "Fusha e Dajtit" (1050 m) there’s a magnificent view over Tirana, Durrës and the whole central-west Albania up to the Adriatic sea. Here we will have dinner at a traditional restaurant "A la carte" and then return to the hotel in Tirana. (B/ L/ D)
