We begin the boat trip passing through the small channels of River Crmnica that leads from Virpazar to the open lake, a large area that offers a first approach to the immensity of the lake. Here, we can see in the distance other part of the lake that connects with Albania, and it is possible to perceive their mountains. Then, passing under a bridge (where pass a famous railway to join Serbia on the main road « Belgrade -Bar » ) you will have a view on the legendary fortress Lessendro built in the 18th century by our king Petar II Petrovic Njegos. We continue our cruise on the Moraca river, seeing the biggest island of the lake called « Vranjina », on the way. The bridge links the two villages, Vranjina and Virpazar by the main road. Passing through a small natural bird reserve, you can see crested grebes, grey herons, cormorants and other bird species. You will discover the perfect beauty of nature as you pass through small canals carved out of the reeds. Once we’ve crossed these canals, you will discover a vast area of the Skadar lake covered by water lilies, white lotuses and other species (depending on the season). This vast area offers an incredible panoramic view of the floating plants. Lake Skadar is an ideal place for fishing and bird-watching, as there are many species of fish and birds. During the boat trip, listening to the sounds of the birds and observing nature offers an interlude of peace, serenity and relaxation. Sailing around three islands known as « Mala and Velika Cakovica » and « Kamenik », you will have an opportunity to enjoy a wild and unique view of Skadar Lake. On the way back, you will have the option to go swimming in the middle of the lake if you want to experience it. It’s a chance to feel alive and connected to nature.
