The views are great, as well as the food. People are nice. If you're into trekking, this is a "must go" for sure.

This is the most beautiful Lake I have ever seen, it's so big it's unreal and has beaches like at the seaside, the water is crystal clear and warm, I hired a jet ski there and I loved it plus we took a normal boat trip.

I pity the fact we visited it during the winter so there was no chance of a soak or a boat trip for us. The view of the unfrozen lake was very pretty, though. This is a great location... More

We made four tours, the donkey safari, the 3 village tour, rural Albania and to the St. Naum monastery.

My favorite was the donkey safari, with donkeys, guided by locals,... More
