The Fan is a river in northern Albania. It is formed by the confluence of two source rivers: the Great Fan (Albanian: Fan i Madh) and the Little Fan (Albanian: Fan i Vogël).

The Great Fan rises near Qafë-Mali in the Pukë District. It flows west through Fushë-Arrëz, then south through Gjegjan and to Rrëshen.

The Little Fan rises in the municipality Fan in the northeastern part of the Mirditë District. It flows southwest through Orosh and to Rrëshen.

West of Rrëshen the two source rivers unite and the Fan continues west to Rubik, and then south until its outflow into the river Mat, east of Milot.
