For impressive scenery it’s hard to beat Lake Shkopet in the north – an amazingly scenic reservoir on Mat river with quiet small beaches and a huge hanging bridge. Blissfully encircled by dense vegetation of the Mat gorge, it’s only a 90-minute drive from Tirana. We will paddle on the lake along pristine river beaches and farmhouses for about 3 hours with opportunity to jump in the turquoise green water whenever the weather is good. We will have a local lunch of seasonal vegetables and fresh river fish.
Level of difficulty (1-5) : 2
Best Period to Experience February - November

We’re really flexible and none of our itineraries are written in stone, so if you have a particular interest you’d like to include or you need to leave a trip earlier or join later (at a pro-rated fare), just let us know and we can almost always make it happen. Likewise, all adventure travel requires a certain amount of flexibility and we sometimes have to make minor changes to the activities because of weather and availability, but we have plenty of options up our sleeve.
The trip fare doesn’t include coffee and any kind of drink except water. You’ll probably feel like tipping your guides at the end of a fabulous trip, though you won’t need to pull out your wallet every few minutes on your Albania Rafting Group adventure tour!
