Wonderful boat trip and excellent wine!
It was an excellent relaxing tour to experience Lake Skadar and its beauty. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the different wildlife of the lake, and the charming local wines to try onboard were the nicest we had during our time in Montenegro.

Lovely afternoon out on Lake Skadar
It was a lovely little trip out. The town of Virpazar doesn't have much else to do, so make sure you book an appropriate time. The hosts were friendly, the views were lovely, and the guides were hospitable and informative. I highly recommend it!

Very chill and friendly, amazing value.
The trip was chill and relaxing, great for introspection and some pics. We saw a few fantastic-looking birds (I'm not an expert), and there was complimentary local wine to sip while enjoying the views (which, again, I value). Overall, it is a delightful experience and fantastic value for money.
