Theth National Park is a national park in extreme northern Albania declared by government decree in 1966. It covers an area of 2,630 hectares (c. 10 sq miles) and is located along the Theth River. It is in the so-called Albanian Alps and if you like "splendid isolation," this may be for you. From their promtional on-line information:

"Exploring Caves speleology / rock climbing

Thethi has other natural monuments such as caves. The speleologist can see small caves of extraordinary beauty in Theth such as: Cuckoo Cave, Cave of Shakujve Valley, the “Red” Cave, the Cave in between the stones in the Thethi field “over Ulaj”, Pepes Cave in Okol and Water hole in the neck of Pejë. The Water hole in the neck of Pejë during times of rain spouts water supplied by underground glacier lakes: Jezerca Lake  and Vuthaj Lake. But those that have attracted the attention of many specialists, climbers,speleologists, geographers and geologists, are the enormous caves of Harapi at Okol and the Cave of Circles at Ulaj. The large size and the interesting phenomena of these caves such as underground lakes, siphons, stalactite and stalagmite galleries, etc.., over the centuries have given rise to many legends."

That part about "splendid isolation" and "many legends" scares me, but it's tempting.
