Full description
Your experience begins as you are collected from your accommodation at 9:00AM, 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 canyon. 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.

I've never done a guided tour before and was slightly nervous as a solo traveler but must say I was very impressed and had an amazing day. My guide was incredibly knowledgeable about, not just the mountain, but the history of Albania and so I learned a lot and had all my questions answered. I felt really safe whilst going up the mountain and my guide took some of the most incredible pictures. I cannot recommend the experience and my guide enough. It was a very memorable day and I am very grateful for the experience.

וואוו, אין מילים, מדריך הטיולים נחמד, אדיב ומאוד מנוסה, לקח אותנו למקומות היפים בטירנה, הקפיד לשמור עלינו שלא נחליק בזמן ההליכה ובזמן צילום התמונות. בנוסף, המדריך הסביר בשמחה על כל המקומות והפעילות המומלצות בעיר, לא מובן מאליו. המדריך דובר אנגלית מאוד קלילה ונותן אווירה מאוד כיפית. ממליץ מאוד! WOW there are no words, the tour guide is nice and kind and very experienced, he took us to the most beautiful places in Tirana, he made sure to keep us from slipping while walking and while taking pictures. In addition, the guide happily explained all the recommended places and activities in the city, not a given. The guide speaks English very easily and gives a very fun atmosphere. highly recommend!

This tour was great! Jack did a great job navigating the trail and offering words of encouragement and assistance where needed. Great guy! The hike was a bit hectic (6/10 for moderately actively persons) but the view at the top is well worth it. If you don’t give up along the way, that is! .
