Our 4×4 Theth Tour will start in Shkoder by diving up in the Alps on-road 1800m above sea level, in “Qafe Thore” and afterward we will drive off-road downhill.
Once we reach the Theth, we will continue with a 40-minute walk by visiting the Church and the Grunas waterfall.
It is a natural attraction, 30 meters high. All its water derives entirely from rock and from snow water.
The Grunas Waterfall can be found in the Albanian Alps and serves as a reward to the visitors who dare to hike in the area. To reach the waterfall you have to walk for 1 hour, it is one spectacular hike across rivers, mountain slopes, and pastures. This waterfall is created by the melted snow waters.
Meanwhile, the church of Theth is what catches your eye when first arriving in Theth Albania. Located in the heart of the village, the church looks like a beautiful silhouette surrounded by the magnificent mountains and topped with a wooden cross. A 19th century stone church that was used as the village hospital during the communist era. This place is open normally on Sunday.
Afterward, we have a short visit to the “Kulla” (tower) of Theth.
It is truly amazing to see this dark imposing lock-in tower jutting out of the earth while being surrounded by some of the most beautiful natural backdrops that can be found in Europe.
This 400-year-old tower was used as a temporary sanctuary for people who committed a certain crime in the old days of Lek Dukagjini. Aside from serving as a sanctuary, it was a place where the offender and the offended met to make settlements.
It’s an interesting piece of history that remains from the old school rituals of the highlands, specifically the rule of law in the areas where no formal institution ever set foot, which makes it incredibly unique.
This tower is the premier sight in Theth and they also call it the Kulla “Vendetta/Blood Feud” Tower because of its history.
After the exploration of the interesting village of the northern Alps of Albania and the experience of the full day Jeep Safari Theth, the comfortable jeeps will wait for you to bring you back to your hotel.
4×4 Theth Off-Road Tour is available every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday.
Full day Jeep Safari Theth is one of the best seller day trips of North Albania. This tour will be driven by experiencing the comfort and security that 4×4 Jeeps offer in the bumpy road to the most interesting town in Alps, Theth, a remote and once-forbidden hamlet nestled within Albania’s Accursed Mountains.
