Surrounded by the rugged peaks of the Albanian Alps, the village of Theth is considered one of the jewels of the Balkans. Here you can find, in the words of anthropologist Edith Durham, "majestic isolation from all the world". Besides the outstanding views, the village can also offer to its visitors insight into what it was like to live by the "kanun" - a controversial traditional Albanian law that regulated the lives of the locals for centuries and still has its impact on the local communities. The road that will lead you to Theth is no less impressive. Starting your tour in Shkodra, you will take a ferry across the beautiful fjord-like Komani Lake. You will then embark on a 7-hour trek from the village of Valbona to Theth - considered one of the most spectacular treks in Europe. Crossing the Valbona National Park, you will enjoy the fresh mountainous air, drink water from the cold mountain springs and experience the hospitality of the locals. You will have a chance to try some of their local produce or get a sip of raki to keep you going. On your last day, a short hike will take you to yet another hidden jewel - the karst spring "Blue Eye", before you head out to the capital city of Tirana, where you can explore the modern face of Albania.
