This biking activity will take about 3 1/2 hours and we will visit two villages on the lake, Shiroka (3km from Shkoder) and Zogaj (7km further). In between villages you will have the chance to enjoy the panoramic view of the lake as our guide explains the unique history and culture of these two villages. Starting point from "Shega Eger" juice bar in street Gjuhadol.
A pleasant bike ride from Shiroka to Zogaj along the shores of Shkodra Lake are the best views of the lake we can offer. We will cycle on the south shore of the lake below Mount Tarabosh.
During communism Zogaj village was in the no-man's land between Albania and Yugoslavia. In Zogaj you will have the opportunity to meet a local carpet weaver and get to sneak a peek at how traditional Albanian carpets are made.
The cycling will be about 20 km (round trip) along a smooth, level, and recently paved road. We guarantee you’ll work up a sweat, but all the better for a refreshing swim! We will make several stops along the way and we believe that anyone in decent physical condition will enjoy this tour.
