This tour is a unique and new experience. Real magic lies deeper in the true wilderness in the heart of the lake, in the channels of the Amazon. Yes, we call it the Amazon Tour because we will reach part of a million shades of green presented by wild vegetation, light play, and the sounds of wildlife. You’ll have a chance to explore three parts of the lake, each with different landscapes. To get the full experience, we advise you to book this tour in the early morning or later in the evening, which will allow us to avoid traffic on the lake and skip the crowds. We will be waiting for you in the charming old town of Virpazar, where you can still enjoy the infusion of a small fishing village. Our lovely team member will excort you to the river channel, where an experienced, friendly, English-speaking captain will pick you up. As we cruise through the first river channel surrounded by lake reeds and soon reach water lily flowers, you’ll have a chance to admire the first lake birds and vegetation. When we reach further, you will find yourself under a spectacular view of mountains separating the lake from the Adriatic Sea and the greatness of an open lake lying under the peaks of the Albanian alps in the background on the other side. Enjoy the light breeze and feel the warmth of the sun touching your face. Admire the famous fortress of Lessendro, which was built in 18th-century and hear about historic events. You will notice that you are surrounded by continuous fields of water chestnuts while we dive into the channel of the Morača river with a view of Vranjina Island in the background. Using the narrow channel to get us as close as possible to the bird reserve area, where we will slow down to minimum speed. You can let yourself be charmed by the sounds of nature and watch the birds making nests for their heirs. As we dive deeper into the national park, we pass many isolated islands. We will use the channel of mysterious village of Karuč to slide closer to the Amazon part. This magical journey will lead us to channel of river Katun who leads to forgotten fishermen villages. Narrow channel surrounded by dense canopies of vegetation will give you the impression of Amazon like riverine landscape. Feel the rush of adrenaline like first explorers of the unknown lands did. While we explore we also take time to take pictures upon your request. On the way back enjoy the last majestic panoramic views of the lake. We are a small family business whose generations have lived and survived on Lake Skadar. Our mission is not only to show you the lake but also to teach you about nature and wildlife and share with you our love for this amazing place. We are lucky enough to call it our home. Local wine and juice is included in price. Swimming is possible upon request.
