Full description
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.

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! .

This tour was the highlight of our trip to Albania. It was slightly challenging but our guide Bledi was brilliant in distracting me at the more tricky bits. The dip in the lake was a welcome cool down. Bledi was knowledgable and engaging and very funny. If you want to do something energetic and experience beautiful scenery then I highly recommend this (especially if you are lucky enough to get Bledi)

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.
