Day 1: Tirana, the vibrant capital, 110 m

After arrival at noon, transfer from “Mother Teresa” airport to the hotel in Shkodra. 

Shkodra is the cultural, economic and political centre of the northern Albania. With an over 2400-year old history, it is one of the oldest inhabited cities in Albania. 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 a brief exploration of the city we will have dinner in a traditional restaurant. Accommodation is provided in a hotel in Shkodra. (-/-/D)

Day 2: Theth and Nderlysa: T2, WT 3h, Am↑150m, Dm↓150m

The day begins with a scenic drive to Theth. After arrival at the guesthouse, you will have some time to get settled in, and then we will be driven to Nderlysa. On the way, the visit the mill of Kolaj, a small structure which is put to work by a stream of water diverted from the river, is planned.

The glacier mills of Ndërlysë offer a unique nature spectacle. The water squeezes itself through a narrow approach that has arisen over the millennia. Rounded and sharp rocks, half dipped into the shimmering colours of water and all around green vegetation will surround our path. The hike continues up to the "Blue Eye of Kaprre" (Syri i kaltër i Kaprresë), a spellbinding natural pool with amazingly blue water in a jungle-like environment. After a short break, we will follow the same path to Ndërlysa, where the vehicles will be waiting for the transfer to our guesthouse. (B/L/D)

Day 3: The ancient trade route to the Peja Pass: T2+, WT 4h, Am↑750m, Dm↓750m

The Peja pass, named after the city with the same name in Kosovo, has been used through the centuries as a trade route to connect the cities of Shkodra and Peja. 

We will begin the day with a transfer to the starting point of our hike. The first part of the ascent is surrounded by colourful scenery, forests, mountains and passing streams. Then, it follows a narrow rocky trail that leads up to the pass, offering spectacular views of the valley. After a break to take in the view, we will descend on the same way back to the valley. Dinner and accommodation are provided at the same guesthouse. (B/L/D)
