Albanik your home away from home

The perfect place to unwind, relax and gather new strength and inspiration to continue your “Albanian Adventure”.

Albanik is a renovated and enlarged boutique hotel. Its placement dates back to communist years. The stone floor, originally an agricultural storehouse, was renovated and enlarged with another floor using wooden structure.

The property is surrounded by a lush forest which you can explore following our meditation path along a water current. Birds, squirrels, lizards and bizarre insects add to the charm of this green scenery.

A garden surrounds the edge of the property and its produce and herbs are collected just before integrating them in your dish preparations.

Tucked between forest and hills, at the end of Deshnica Valley, 20 km east of town of Kelcyra, Albanik has much to offer for those yearning for more nature.

Be it hiking around the smooth hills nesting many villages on their heights, trek adventures around the Nëmëçkë-Dhëmbel-Trebeshinë mountain range, or rafting/kayaking along Vjosa River or Osum Canyon, there is some activity for everyone.

About 3 km from Albanik, picnic and swimming is possible in a more chillout setting at a beautiful lake with turquoise waters surrounded by the shading of a black pine forest.

Albanik is a wonderful place full of contrasts. It is where new ideas meet old customs and traditions.


The point of being to de-connect as often as possible, we nonetheless offer to our guests a strong wireless signal within the property's boundaries.


The Outoors aound here are as inviting as accessible. A total of 47 villages spot the Deshnica Valley offering possibilities to go for hiking, mountain biking, horsebackriding, or on jeep tours.

Freshwater Swimming

About 3km from the property there is an enormous freshwater swimming pool, the primary utility of which serves to irrigate the fields below. This turquoise gem garnished with a pine forest, makes a great spot of sunbathing, swimming, and canoeing.
