Catch a cable car

Take the cable car to (almost) the top of Dajti Mountain and enjoy the fantastic views. The longest cableway in the Balkans at 4.7 kilometres, the 15 minute scenic journey takes visitors over forest, farms, hilltops and even bunkers!

Grab something to eat

Make time for a stop at the award winning restaurant Ballkoni Dajtit, which sits on the edge of Dajti Mountain, and enjoy the breathtaking views! The restaurant which is surrounded by the national park, was constructed in the traditional log cabin style that historically has it’s roots in the mountainous regions of Scandinavia and Eastern Europe. Relax and enjoy the warm atmosphere and traditional cuisine accompanied by the most extraordinary view Tirana has to offer.

Rotating Bar

Located on the seventh floor of Dajti Tower, Dajti Tower Bar rotates 360 degrees giving visitors an incredible view of both the national park and the city of Tirana below. The bar completes a full rotation every 45 minutes so enjoy a hot or cold beverage, relax and enjoy the view!

Viewing platform

If visitors would like a less restricted view, they can find the viewing platform which is located above the seventh floor. This unique open-air view of the surroundings provides a beautiful and unrivalled view of Dajti mountain, surrounding mountain ranges, Tirana & as far as the sea on a clear day.

*The platform is currently closed for safety reasons but ask a member of the bar staff on the seventh floor and they may be able to grant supervised access

Hiking

We often get requests for a guide to take visitors hiking to the highest peaks of Dajti Mountain. Although there are roughly defined routes in the mountain and maps available from the station, only experienced hikers and those with a good sense of direction should make the journey on their own. For the majority of visitors who are not comfortable making the 2-3 hour trip up on their own, we work with a number of experienced guides who know the routes well and regularly make the trip to the top. For more information on this activity please contact bookings@dajtiekpres.com
