The Albanian Alps
Hurry before everyone finds out! Currently a perfect balance between developed enough to have a few amenities but not quite enough to be mainstream the Albanian Alps might just be Europe’s best kept secret.
Theth to Valbona
**I hiked this route and it worked out well. I enjoyed ending with the ferry ride after a long few days of hiking
Day 1: Tirana – Shkrodër
Day 2: Skrodër – Theth, hiking Theth Blue Eye
Day 3: Theth – Valbona hike
Day 4: Valbona – Koman – Shkodër – Tirana
Day 4 was LONG but ultimately saved a night of accomodation for me. I saw everything I went to see, however, I could’ve spent another day in Shkodër and I definitely wish I had a few more days to do day hikes and relax in the mountains.
