Whether you are new to kayaking or experienced Outdoor Albania offers a range of trips to suit all levels.

White Water Kayaking

Season: February – May

Kayakers can choose between the turquoise waters of the Northern rivers, such as, the Valbona, the Kir, and Fani i Vogël (WW class. III-IV-V-VI), or the larger Southern rivers, like the Devoll, the Osum or the Vjosa (WW class. II-III-IV-V). Wherever in Albania, OA guarantees that you will kayak down the best rapids, playing every wave of these surprisingly beautiful rivers, that started to be regularly paddled only after 1992.

Sea Kayaking

Season: March - October

Our sea kayaking itineraries run along the stunning villages of the Ionian coast, which is noted for its steep crags, small hidden bays, white gravel beaches and caverns of all shapes and sizes. The beauty of the sea is towered over by the massive 2000m high Mount Çika, while the hills are covered with olive and citrus groves, and other Mediterranean flora. While kayaking, one can also enjoy fishing, swimming and camping. As an alternative to camping, accommodation can be organised in traditional village homes along the coast. Kayak trips can also be combined with visits to some of the most important historical and archaeological sites in Albania.
