Embark on an enchanting full-day journey to the breathtaking Skadar Lake in Montenegro, a hidden gem known for its natural beauty and tranquility. Skadar Lake is one of 5 national parks in Montenegro and one of Ramsar's protected Wetlands, and home to various species of birds, including pelicans. Experience the mesmerizing allure of the lake as you explore different areas, each offering a unique and picturesque landscape. You will not go on a boat cruise only. Instead, you will fully experience Skadar Lake with Ave Tours, a leading tour operator in Montenegro. Begin your adventure with a stop in the visitors center right in Vranjina, a small village that is actually an island connected to the land via the bridge. Our guide will walk you through the turbulent and surprising history of this peaceful place as you make your way to the Visitor’s Center. You will also learn about the old ways and how locals here lived throughout history. Next, venture out onto the glistening waters of Skadar Lake on a 2-hour long boat cruise. As you sail across the tranquil surface, allow yourself a moment to enjoy the untouched beauty of the surrounding mountains and lush greenery. The boat will take you to one of the quiet beaches on the lake as well, taking the time for swimming breaks. You will have a chance to swim in the clear water of the lake. Skadar Lake is home to 280 species of birds and 50 species of fish. If you are lucky, you will get to see the pelicans, symbols of Skadar Lake. After the boat cruise, you will enjoy a wine-tasting experience with traditional Montenegrin appetizers. Some of the best Montenegrin wines come from this region due to its unique geographic position and fertile soil. Finally, you will make your way to the charming town of Virpazar, where you’ll embark on a walking tour. Discover the rich history and culture as you stroll through the streets and immerse yourself in the vibrant atmosphere. Make sure to look your best as we will show you some of the best viewpoints in the country. The vast greenery and luscious nature of Skadar Lake make it a unique destination. No matter how many times you visit this national park, there will always be something that pulls you in and makes you want to return.
