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.

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.

What people are saying about Tirana

Alban was the best guide I have ever had. He goes over and above to ensure that we were well looked after and is very knowledgeable about all things Albanian. He encourages you to go the extra mile, even though I was a little nervous at first on the hike. Would thoroughly recommend. We went further and booked him for a five day private tour, which was absolutely fantastic, and went through the Albanian alps, including Komani Lake, Shala River, Valbone to Theth mountain pass and Shkoder. He ensured we had the best rooms in the guesthouses, the best seats when we needed to share transportation and allowed us full flexibility to hike and see and go swimming in waterfalls and blue eyes off the beaten track. Thank you very much Alban for making our trip to Albania unforgettable! J&O

The tour was better than expected. Our tour guide Alban is the best. He is very helpful and pushes us to enjoy the experience. The hike was amazing, it starts on an easy track but once you reach the top it becomes challenging and totally worth it. The restaurant there also serves very good food. Highly recommended

Excellent tour ! The view is amazing, it's really a must see. The hiking isn't that hard but still a bit sporty. The swimming was really nice at the end. I highly recommend for you to book this tour

Our guide Heldi was amazing, you can learn a lot from him and he will motivate you to push yourself in reaching the top of the mountain. Highly recommended!

This hike to Lake Bovilla was really amazing! Defrimi was a great tour guide.
