The Hyka family is in charge of running Camping Tirana. The family has worked in tourism for many years in Italy, so they have a lot of experience. In 2008, Bashkim Hyka moved back to Albania. He was proud of his country and wanted to show it off, so he began to organize through Albania. He learned quickly that people who wanted to travel in different ways, like campers, needed a structure, especially in the area around the capital. He chose to start a camping business near Tirana.
Placed in the hills around the village of Kashar, which is about 15 km west of Tirana. Camping Tirana is the best place to stay for people who want to visit Albania. It is also the best place to start trips to Tirana and Kruja, which both have a lot of traffic and parking problems.
Also, Camping Tirana is only 100 meters from Lake Kusit, where you can swim, fish, or even take a boat ride.
The camp has toilets, showers, sinks, electrical hookups, a water supply, a way for water to drain, and wireless internet.
• Making plans for trips to Tirana, the capital, and Kruja, as well as other parts of Albania, if needed.
• Bike rental.
• Jeep 4×4 trips for those who like to try new things.
People in the family have been making tobacco for hundreds of years. We will be happy to tell our guests about the different parts of gathering and making tobacco. This is a great chance to learn about things that are almost extinct.
The “vineyards with bayonets” are another unique thing. Yes, you read that right but don’t worry, it’s easy to understand. After he broke off relations with China, dictator Hoxha was sure that other countries would attack, so he built hundreds of thousands of bunkers to protect the country. But he wasn’t satisfied with just the bunkers. He also thought about clearing out a lot of the country to keep the enemy under better control. Large vineyards were built on these cleared areas to supply Raki, which is a distilled grape drink that Albanians love. To protect against attacks by paratroopers, a bayonet was put into each pole that held the wires that guided the plants. We didn’t want to change things because we wanted to honor the past. So was born the “outdoor museum of bayonets.” The “mystery” is solved by this.

This is an extremely beautiful place. Very quiet and you will find everything you need. There is a kitchen with gas stove that you can use, working wifi and clean shower and bathroom. Water takes a long time to turn warm, but it works! Rita is a lovely host and sells homemade raki. She takes very good care of the place and cleans everything daily. We spend a night here before going to Tirana and came back for another night after. I would definitely come back here. Thanks for a great stay!

In addition to a wonderful place, surrounded by mountains and a beautiful comfortable lake to swim in, Rita, her husband and daughter do a great job taking good care of guests and offering the best solutions. The camping has a great price and is very comfortable. We stayed for a week and didn't want to leave. I definitely recommend the place!

Really nice place. Beautiful location. Tranquility with a view on a nice big lake within 5 min walk. The owners are really very friendly and helpful in anything. Facilities are basic but clean and the showers are really hot. Nice home made wine, olive oil etc are available. Access to Tirana is easy. Definitely would come back to enjoy the great atmosphere PS: they also helped us to get a small issue with our van fixed, thx

Can't recommend enough. The owners are very friendly and speak very good English. Facilities are good. And only a 2 min walk to the lake for a swim, where they have built a pontoon to jump off. We will be back.
