Theth Waterfall Jeep Tour – Albania
Departing from Shkoder, this adventure includes time in the village of Theth and the canyon and 30 meter waterfall. While Theth and this northern area offer some of the best views in the country, it is also difficult to access. Entry is by off-road excursion and/or by boat. You will be way off the beaten path on this adventure allowing you to observe village life and nature’s hidden beauty.
When you arrive at the waterfall, there is a brief hike to get up close. You can observe the falls from the jeep, but plan to trek the extra bit to enjoy the whole experience. There have been people that did not hike this last bit…please don’t be that guy! It is low impact and definitely worth it.
- Driver / guide for the adventure
- Jeep within sight of the waterfall and then hike the last 15 minutes
- See and observe village life in northern Albania
- National lunch can be added-on to a booking
- Hotel pickup & drop-off in Skoder
- Languages available include: English, Italian, and Albanian
A lot of potential...
It was evident from our excursion that Albania is putting a lot of effort into developing Theth into a tourist spot. There was a good amount of road construction and many of the village homes look newly built/rebuilt. The waterfall was beautiful but…..the off road jeep portion was too long, 2 hours. We made a couple of stops along the way, including a beautiful lookout and the perfect place for a traditional Albanian lunch. The host family was gracious and eager to please. Once we reached the village the walk to the waterfall was 1 hour. It was not a difficult hike for us but it was much longer than expected. This excursion has the potential to be great but out of the 8 of us: 2 didn’t like it at all, 2 were underwhelmed, 2 thought it was just OK and 2 enjoyed it.
