To the East of the East of Tirana’s city center, Lake Farka (Liqeni i Farkes) is a local favorite for waterborne fun in Summer. Picnicking, jet and water skiing, swimming, boating, all the usual wet sports suspects. Larger then its cousin the artificial lake at Parku i Liqenit, this countryside jewel is perfect for getting away from it all for an afternoon.
Despite the natural beauty of the lake, visitors should be aware the area is not yet well developed in most areas. Services are few, and there are no lifeguards. Newcomers should seek out assistance, or take care when swimming or skiing. One of the beautiful things about Albania and much of the rest of Eastern Europe is that most places are really unspoiled, untouched, like Lake Farka.
Argo will be getting local information about the lake and other wild surrounding areas very soon. We appreciate very much your patience, and encourage you to contact us if you have additional sources.
