Daily Tour to Shala River

The Shalë is a river flowing inside the Albanian Alps in northern Albania. Its source is in the Albanian Alps, near the village of Theth, close to the border with Montenegro. The Shalë flows generally south through the municipal units Shalë, Shosh, and Temal.

  • Hailed as the Thailand of Albania, the pristine Shala River and its surroundings are a spectacular summer alternative to the Riviera and other coastline favorites. Known for its clear aquamarine waters, the Shala River’s popularity has skyrocketed in the last few years, with more locals looking to the north for their summer fun. Perfect for swimming, the Shala River is surrounded by a spectacular landscape and amazing caves. Taking a dip inside the caves is a must!

The 37-km-long Shala River flows from its source at Radohina Peak, part of the Albanian Alps, locally known as Bjeshkët e Namuna (Accursed Mountains). The river flows into the wondrous Koman Lake, another favorite among local and international tourists. In fact, because of their proximity, the two are often linked via water ferries. If you take the ferry, keep in mind that most people who have experienced it cannot stop talking about it. So prepare to be amazed and annoy your friends after this trip!
