Walking in Northern Albania - Into The Accursed Mountains (Recce Tour)

Extending across vistas liberally scattered with deep river valleys, alpine lakes and national parks, the towering limestone gorges of the Accursed Mountains, or Albanian Alps, provide the perfect backdrop to one of Europe’s last great adventures. After soaking up the past in the historic town of Shkodër, the gateway to the north, our journey takes us from the breath-taking expanse of Lake Koman deep into the heart of the Valbonë Valley, also known as the ‘Miracle of the Alps’. From here we follow remote highland trails which take us through quaint mountain villages and over the imposing Bori and Valbonë passes, passing through some of the country’s most precious and unspoilt landscapes, including Theth National Park. This is an incredible adventure encompassing epic scenery, stunning walks and an insight into traditional but dying way of life.
