Bovilla Canyon rock climbing has so much to offer for everyone.

Spend a day of climbing with the people that have been developing the Bovilla routes and others throughout Albania over the past several years. They are patient to work with first-timers of all ages or happy to celebrate and swap stories with those that are avid rock climbers.

  1. Amazing climbing experience!

    Wow what an introduction to outdoor climbing. Vincent and I had never climbed outdoors before, but we fell in love with it when Elion took us to Bovilla Canyon. Elion was professional, we felt safe at all times. The trip was full of fun climbing and conversation. It was an amazing experience to climb with someone so dedicated to fostering the climbing community in Albania!

  2. Fulfilling. Breath taking. Faleminderit!!

    I was an absolute beginner when it comes to outdoor climbing (and I’ve only done indoor climbing twice) i was surprised to learn that there were actually routes available for my level. Elion was extremely patient and nurturing. The climb was fulfilling and the view of the area was breath taking. Apart from learning to climb and tying knots, i had a free Albanian language and culture crash course. I had only one day in Tirana and I am glad this is what I chose to do. Special thanks to sweet Sidita who encouraged me throughout my climb. Faleminderit!!
