Albania Guide, National Parks Guy

Prespa National Park is located over three borders and features the highest glacial lakes in the Balkans. Just 28km from Korçë, it is within easy reach for most tourists to the area, and if you are a bird twitcher, you are likely to want to venture here to see the local birdlife. The threatened Pygmy Cormorant can be seen here, as well as the European Otter.

Albania, Greece and the Republic of Macedonia form the transnational Park allowing for a large area of natural habitats to be shared between countries. Great Lake Prespa is about 150m deep and it is thought that underground channels from Great Lake Prespa feed through to Lake Orchid (further North).

This area has been noted as an area of significance to wetlands in the world with Ramsar making the Albanian Prespa Lakes an area of special interest in this area. The other areas that Ramsar designates in Albania is the Karavasta Lagoon Marine National Park and Butrint National Park.

There are plenty of activities to take part in here too, from churches from the Byzantine Age to bird watching and fishing.
