Koman Lake Excursion

Sometimes compared to Norway’s magnificent fjords, Albania’s Lake Koman will dazzle you with its rugged natural beauty. Incredibly, this lake and the pretty surroundings that we see today, did not even exist until the 1970s, when a large hydroelectric project resulted in a dam being built on the Drin River.

Located about one hour’s drive from Shkodër, our Koman Lake excursion will culminate in a relaxing journey on the calming and glass-like water. If this adventure sounds familiar to you, it’s likely because you may have heard about it in a Bradt travel guide where it was dubbed “one of the great boat trips in the world.” We hope you’ll come see for yourself!
