Tirana: Gamti Mountain Hike with Lake Views

1. Tirana: Gamti Mountain Hike with Lake Views

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.

Had a brilliant day guided by Heldi. Throughout the trip Heldi was informative and helped me learn a lot about Albanian history. Any questions I had, Heldi was happy to answer. He was kind and helpful. I never felt rushed throughout the trip. I would recommend this trip to Bovilla Lake- it was beautiful with amazing views. Definitely a must see when visiting Tirana to see something more than the city. I would say the hike was easy-medium. The walk was not far for a stunning view. I went during the beginning of spring so there were not many people around.

We couldn't have asked for a better guide for this trip. Riges was very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. He drove us safely to the starting point, the last section of the roads were bumpy but he took it slowly. He guided us safely to the top where the views were so good! We stopped for coffee afterwards which just topped off the trip. I would highly reccomend this trip to anyone visiting the area.

It was a great experience, my German-speaking guide Dritan was very accommodating and adapted the tour to my needs. In addition, I was able to ask him countless questions about the country and its people, which was very valuable for me. I can only recommend.

We were on a tour to Bovilla Lake with Riges. It was beautiful and Riges as a guide was very friendly and gave us good tips for Tirana and Albania. We spontaneously booked another trip to Kruja with him. Everything was great here too.

In short.... You must do this when you are in Tirana. 5 stars, exceeded everything.
