All this zeal to cut that piece of red tape into pieces! They remind me of my 1 year old nephew!

Very good; it looked horrible last year. I hope that Montenegro also rebuilt their part.

Hi guys,

I've been reading these posts (a lot of them off topic unfortunately) but didn't find any useful info about status of the roads in Northern parts. I'm planning to visit beautiful Albania this summer and I would like to go for some mountaneering. Does anybody know how good is the road to Valbone valley in the North (from Fierze thru Bajram Curri-Dragobi to Valbona)? Where can I find info about ferry boat from Koman - Fierze (timetable, prices,...). Is it possible to go by road from Koman to Fierze?
And from Valbona - is there a passage (road for normal car not 4x4) over the hills to Thethi valley? Any info or even better - pictures - would be nice.

And finally are there any camping places all over Albania?

Thanks in advance for your comments or suggestions.

Hi there,

The road that leads to the beautiful Valbona Valley was recently finished. It links Bajram Curri with Margjegaj:

Unfortunately there are no direct road links that connect Valbonė with Theth and Koman with Fierzė. At least not at the moment.

How long is this newly constructed road to Valbona? The north is not that easily accessible by car. But things are changing for the better.Also, it seems to me that a lot of people take the little ferry from Koman to Fierze.


I dont know how reliable this data is:

The car ferry from Koman departs daily at 09:30, arriving in Fierze at 11:30. Tickets are 400 lek per person and 1200 lek per square metre of car. The ferry from Fierze to Koman departs at 06:30, arriving at 08:30 – which means there's no option to return the same day unless you drive across the good but winding mountain roads to Fushe-Arrez and then either back to Shkodra or on to Tirana, arriving in the late afternoon. There are also private passenger boats making the crossing, departing from Koman at 09:00 and 09:15 (arriving in Fierze at respectively 11:00 and 11:15); the Fierze-Koman trips are at 06:30 and 06:45 (arriving in Koman at respectively 08:30 and 08:45). Tickets are 300 lek. These private boats can also be rented out for shorter return trips.
To get to Koman by bus, take a furgon from the crossing of Rruga Skenderbeg and Rruga Marin Barleti; departures are at 06:30, 07:00 and 07:30 (all arriving in time for the ferry), and 12:00 and 13:30. The ride takes 1hr 15mins and costs 300 lek. Furgons go back to Shkodra at 08:00, 09:00 and 09:30.

Funny, I've never heard of a ferry where you had to pay for the number of m² of your car. Mostly the price is determined by the weight of your car.

I just did a checkup on the Ministry of Transportation website and it looks like they've already announced the open tender for the construction of the Koman - Fierzė segment.

Probably becasue of limited space on ferry. Btw, is there a reservation needed for this ferry (end of July/begin of August) and where to book? Or it's not so crowdy and is just "plug'n'play"

Sorry mate, wrong typo. It's the municipality of Margegaj.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Margegaj
This segment is 13 km long and is part of the road segment that links Bajram Curri with Valbona and its surrounding villages.

So to recapitulate: All the motorways (four lanes) that will be in traffic in Albania at the beginning of next year are:

Milot-somewhere before Kukes
Durres-Tirane
Durres-Vlore

Am I right?

It is Millot-kallimash
Tirana-durres ( it was repaved this year)
Durres- Lushnje
Lushnje-Fier ( all these 2x2 are already in traffic and durres kukes will be inagurated tomorrow .. so basically you do not have to w8 the beginning of the new year )

Fier - Levan ( Vlore ) and Levan ( Vlore ) - Tepelene works have started but i do not know when they will be finished !

Then from tepelene to gjirokaster there is a very modern and comfortable 1x2 ( i know it cause i am from there )

And from gjirokaster to sarande a 2x2 is buing built right now .. !


It is worth mentioning ... that exept tirana durres all the other roads that i mentioned above have started in the last 2 years .. !

So in 1 year max 2 from now you will have the oportunity to go e.g from kosova to sarande in less than 6 hours ... ! Which is very very good

OR from kosova to durres in about 3 hours max ...

And btw they are many more projects in albania that are under construction this year ... but their importance is not as huge as of the ones mentioned above

E.g the Coastal road between saranda and vlora has been reconstructed and works stoped 2 days ago ( i mean it comletely finished 2 days ago )

I ve gotta say that the rulling party of Albania ( PD ) has done a tremendous work in road / motorway construction these 2 last years ...
