Theth and Valbonë 3 Day – 2 Night Hiking Trip

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.

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.

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.

A super convenience?  We can store your  luggage at Florian’s Guesthouse for no extra charge while you are on this hiking tour. In addition, if you have your own car, you can also store it here on our  property at the Guesthouse (gated car spaces are limited so it is a first in – first served)

Should you require a place to stay in Shkodër at the start or the end of your hiking trip you have the option of staying at our family run Guesthouse that is currently running a 10/10 score on HostelWorld! Should you choose to stay with us, we would be happy to host you!
