Full description
Your experience begins as you are collected from your accommodation at 8:00AM, from where you depart for Bovilla Lake. The road is about 21 kilometers long, with half of it being off-road. Along the way, enjoy views of the suburban neighborhoods of Tirana, taking in the very different lifestyle to that of the city. Drive up to the lake's dam, before preparing to hike in Gamti Mountain. Your hiking track is of a simple level, with each step providing you with a more beautiful view than the last as you ascend to the top. Your hike lasts about 40 minutes, and on top of the hill you can enjoy the impressive views of the lake and the green hills that surround it. Whilst there, take some time to rest, enjoy the gorgeous view, and talk and eat food under the shadows of the cave. Following your break, return back down via the same track. Once done hiking, make a short stop at the river below the dam, which is home to unique canyons. You can also choose to refresh yourself with a swim in the fresh water of the river. At the conclusion of your adventure, your guide returns you back to Tirana.

It did not start very well. Our guide did not show up as agreed, but after telephone contact he arrived. It turned out that our booking through a confusion with the organizer has been booked as canceled. The guide who came had apparently had to jump in at short notice to save the situation. Then everything floated on. After a drive on bumpy roads, we arrived at Gamti Mountain, where we were greeted by an absolutely stunning view of Lake Bovilla, which can rather be described as a pond that supplies the capital with drinking water. On the way back we made a stop by the river below the dam and the worth seeing canyon landscape.

Alban was the best guide I have ever had. He goes over and above to ensure that we were well looked after and is very knowledgeable about all things Albanian. He encourages you to go the extra mile, even though I was a little nervous at first on the hike. Would thoroughly recommend. We went further and booked him for a five day private tour, which was absolutely fantastic, and went through the Albanian alps, including Komani Lake, Shala River, Valbone to Theth mountain pass and Shkoder. He ensured we had the best rooms in the guesthouses, the best seats when we needed to share transportation and allowed us full flexibility to hike and see and go swimming in waterfalls and blue eyes off the beaten track. Thank you very much Alban for making our trip to Albania unforgettable! J&O

The tour was better than expected. Our tour guide Alban is the best. He is very helpful and pushes us to enjoy the experience. The hike was amazing, it starts on an easy track but once you reach the top it becomes challenging and totally worth it. The restaurant there also serves very good food. Highly recommended
