About this tour

It is precisely that inexplicable peace that the greenery of the forests and the blueness of the water give to the soul and make it feel relaxed like never before. Therefore, we are always in pursuit of these oases of nature, which amaze us with their perfection, vibrant colours, and unique sounds, so is the waterfall of Selcka. The Selcka Waterfall is located two km away from Gjirokastra. The Selcka valley is six km long is under the administration of Pogoni local unit and is also part of Zagoria Nature Park.

If you want a great outdoor day trip combined with a picnic, Selcka waterfall is the perfect synonym of it.

We take care for the grill, nature takes care to the view!

In the village of Labova e Kryqit, you can visit one of the most beautiful Byzantine churches in Albania, which is dedicated to St. Mary. Typical Byzantine building with a high dome at the top. A late narthex provides the main entrance. There are 9 visible levels of paintings and frescoes on the interior walls. Some historians say that although the original construction of the Church dates back to 527-565 during the time of Emperor Justinian, the church has been modified and what we see today resembles a 13th century structure during the time of the despot of Epirus. But the inhabitants of Labova strongly defend their version, that this church was built in the time of Emperor Justinian. The area around Libohova Castle is a rocky area with an impressive landscape. Here through this area we can see the whole Drino Valley, while in this area there are several other objects of interest such as Ottoman period dwellings and two pagan tombs located on a rock in the Marina neighborhood of Libohova. The city founded in the period of the great Roman Emperor Hadrian. Archaeological expeditions there discovered a rich necropolis, theater, traces of dwellings and a temple. It is thought to have been an episcopal center in late antiquity. In the V-VI century, according to the Procopius of Caesarea, Justinianopol was renamed in honor of the Byzantine emperor, Justinian.
