We arrive at Theth National Park around 10:00am ready to start our Northern Albania Adventure.

Our first stop will be at Reconciliation Tower –  This is a very interesting tower, as this is the place that served as a safe house until the blood feud was resolved between large families in the North of Albania. The guide of the Tower will describe the interesting stories that this tower has witnessed through the centuries. 

Church – Our next stop will be touring the iconic Thethi village church. The church belongs to Catholic Ritual and was built in 1892.

After a short break it's time to start our hiking adventure. Our first hiking activity for the day will be visiting Blue Eye Lagoon. We travel to the small village of Nderlysaj which is a 30 minutes drive from Theth. From there it is a 40 minute hike each way to the Blue Eye. On the way you will experience all Northern Albania nature has to offer.

Upon return back to Theth, we visit the Grunas Waterfall.   We hike for about 30 minutes along the river exploring the whole valley and the last 10 minutes of our hike will bring us to Thethi Waterfall, a miracle of nature.

And with the beautiful adventures in the heart of nature and with memories to last a lifetime we start our journey back to Tirana. We will be in Tirana around 19:00, and drop you off at your accommodation.
