You will be picked up by Tradition & Adventure guides at hotel and we will be headed northward of Albania. The Island can be reached from the town or Rragam or the Vau Dejes dam. On this journey you will see the old ruins of the citadel and the byzantine cathedral that once stood great in the valley of river Drin. The citadel of Shurdhah is also referred to as the Citadel of Sardar. This name has Latin roots. The translation of Shurdhah into English means deaf. It is rumored that the citadel took this name because the wind going through the valley made it difficult to hear. The origins of the settlements date back to the 6th cen. BC, but the most prosperous days were between the 11-14th cen. AC. The settlement served first as an important religious center with 365 altars devoted to different saints and then as the residence of the noble Dukagjini family. In addition to a rich historical tour, there will be opportunities to enjoy swimming and boating on the clear waters of the lake.
