This tour will introduce you to Skadar and the great natural and historical attractions of Montenegro. Visit the last remaining habitat of pelicans and the largest bird reservation in Europe. Skadar Lake is among the few freshwater swamps still flourishing in the Mediterranean. It is also the largest lake in the Balkans. It is set within the National Park of the same name and boasts 264 species of birds, 48 species of fish and 30 submarine springs. Interestingly, these springs are called oka (eyes) by the locals. Numerous islands, fish colonies and a complex of monasteries cap off the region's attractions.
Take in the many sights as you cruise on the lake, viewing the islands, bays and picturesque surroundings.
Fish from the lake is served for lunch at a nearby local restaurant. There's time afterward for sunbathing and swimming (weather permitting).
Wear your swimsuit under your clothing; bring a towel, reef-safe/biodegradable sunscreen, light clothing to act as a full cover-up for further protection from the sun, and a hat. Swim at your own risk. Swimming is done from the boat, not from a beach. Guests must negotiate three steps (with handrail) to get on and off the boat. The drive to Skadar Lake is approximately 90 minutes each way. Although the lake is also well known for its many species of birds, sightings are unlikely in the late morning and afternoon hours, especially during the hot summer months.
