Opened in 2005, Rilindja (“Rebirth”) is the oldest operating restaurant in Valbona. And the coziest! Upstairs are 4 small twin rooms with one shared bathroom. Two of the rooms have enormous balconies. These small rooms are cozy but basic, and are best for those who intend to be out and about most of the time. The restaurant specializes in traditional Northern Albanian fare, including whole goats roasted on a spit(!). The Information Center is what we call our office, and since we are the people doing the trail marking, map making, environmental research and education programs, you can always find the most up-to-date information here.

Open from

Rilindja is fully open from 1 May through 15 October.  At this time, there are generally people here and awake from 6:45 in the morning until 11:00 at night.  The rest of the year we're around (Alfred and Catherine and Skender) but don't promise that we'll be easy to find.
