Osum Canyons the wonder of Albanian nature

The majestic canyon of Osum River is the largest in the country, rightfully deemed “Albania’s Grand Canyon”. It stretches for 13 km (8 miles) in the Çorovodë – Hambull section of the river valley, varying in width from 4 to 35 meters (13-115 feet). The playful and capricious stream meanders through thick, tall slopes, sitting on a water basin of some 70-80 meters (230-262 miles). 

The best way to immerse yourself in the fantastic world of the Osum’s Canyon is to go through it by canoe or rafting boat. Cold watercourses, sideline waterfalls, gleaming leaves; all fused into an adventurous, precipitating stream. Such an experience into the canyon of Osum River is a must for water sport enthusiasts who can benefit from several professional local guides. 

The beautiful journey of the canyon finishes at the Vau i Grepckës where it’s replaced by a wide-open delta used by the locals for summer baths

In this canyon, from the end of April to the middle of June, the rafting sport season takes place. Athletes from Italy, England, the Czech Republic, Germany and all over the world come to practice in its waters, the beautiful sport of rafting.

But rafting is a sport for which even people who have not practiced before have shown interest. And the reasons why Osum canyons have so many visitors have already become numerous.

Something different about Osum Canyons is that the edges have beautiful green flora all year round. As you discover the canyons, you will pass near incredible rock formations formed by water erosion. They reach a maximum height of 450 meters, giving a sense of grandeur. With every two meters you cross, a new shape appears keeping you amazed all the time. All this is accompanied by the flow of water from different sides, sometimes creating waterfalls.

And this is not the only miracle of this canyon – some waterfalls appear, in some segments, and spectacular rainbows are reflected in the water, especially on sunny days. In those cases it is very difficult to set the boundary between heaven and earth, and the impressions follow even when you leave the canyon, inviting you for a return.
