Kayaking Experience on Lake Shkopet

This trip is for active people who enjoy being on the water and kayak through wonderful surroundings. During this trip, we will paddle on the lake along pristine river beaches and farm houses. We will have a picnic lunch of seasonal fruit, sweets and refreshing drinks. After lunch, we will have some more paddling to do, until we reach a nice little restaurant where the tour will end. Here you will have the option to taste fresh river fish and another drink, before returning to Tirana. The waters of the Mati river/Lake Shkopet flow through central Albania and are located just a 1:30 hour drive from Tirana. You will be paddling the kayak for approximately three hours. This trip is easy and when the weather is good you can go in bathing suits and jump into the water whenever you wish to.
