Hydrospeed in Vjosa river - The blue heart of Europe

Hydro speed experience in the wilderness of River Vjosa, the blue heart of Europe, is designed to be one of the most amazing outdoor adventures in Albania. Hydro speed is a medium difficulty activity and does not require much strength. You just need to follow the flow of the Vjosa river and the instructions of the professional guide, who will teach you basic manoeuvres to safely go downriver and the rest depends entirely on you. During the downriver you will be leaded and supervised by the professional guides. It is recommended for people who have a very good relationship with water and is well suited for those with the adventurous spirit. After the trip the group will enjoy a local lunch, really delicious.

Not Included

The trip fare doesn’t include coffee and any kind of drink except water. You’ll have extra activities (optional tour) if you choose them, and you’ll probably feel like tipping your guides at the end of a fabulous trip, though you won’t need to pull out your wallet every few minutes on your Active Albania adventure tour!


We’re really flexible and none of our itineraries are written in stone, so if you have a particular interest you’d like to include or you need to leave a trip earlier or join later (at a pro-rated fare), just let us know and we can almost always make it happen. Likewise, all adventure travel requires a certain amount of flexibility and we sometimes have to make minor changes to the activities because of weather and availability, but we have plenty of options up our sleeve.
