Escape the hordes and head on an adventure in one of Europe's last remaining wildernesses! Undiscovered Montenegro offers unique kayaking, hiking, gastronomy, wine and wild swimming tours at the stunning Lake Skadar National Park, whether it's on our hosted activity weeks or as a day tour.
If you love truly staggering natural beauty, Lake Skadar National Park is the place for you. Practically unknown in the West, the dramatic beauty of this vast freshwater lake easily rivals the more famous European lakes - and it's cheaper too!
As your hosts and guides, the UK/Montenegrin team behind Undiscovered Montenegro can create an unforgettable experience for you and your partner, family or group of friends. There's something fun for everyone - from kayaking along tranquil mirrored waters and hiking to hidden caves and coves to wild swimming in natural rock pools and waterfalls, wine-tasting, bird-watching and long lazy lunches served by the friendliest of locals.
Our Lake Skadar multi-activity holidays have just the right mix of adventure and relaxation. Staying at our activity base near Virpazar, the beautiful Villa Miela, recommended by the Lonely Planet, Guardian newspaper and National Geographic Travel, you're in the perfect place to take advantage of this stunning lake. If you're feeling even more adventurous, you might like to add on an extra trip to northern Montenegro's magnificent Durmitor National Park for some rafting or mountain-biking or head across the border to Albania with the stupendous scenery of Theth National Park just three hours' drive away.
We also offer fantastic specialist breaks such as all-hiking, all-kayaking, birding and yoga holidays.
About Lake Skadar
Lake Skadar, a protected National Park, is a destination so uncommercial that most people have never heard of it - but now you're in on the secret.
Lake Skadar is a wild wonder waiting to be explored. A vast freshwater lake straddling the borders of Albania and Montenegro and surrounded by dramatic karst mountains, its mirrored waters, rocky shores and wetlands play host to a myriad of wildlife with more than 260 species of birds, traditional fishing villages, islet monasteries and pristine beaches.
Home to some of the most celebrated panoramas in a country renowned for its wild, natural beauty, Lake Skadar has been a protected National Park since 1983, was added, in 1996, to the World's List of Wetlands of International Importance by the Ramsar Convention and in late 2011, was formally nominated for UNESCO protection as a biosphere reserve.
Many Montenegrins regard this area as their country's heart and soul. It was here that the former Montenegrin royal family chose to summer, where Turkish invaders sought to conquer, and where some of the best wines and organic food in Montenegro can be found, cultivated by the local producers of Crmnica and Godinje valleys.
