  • Travel along small, narrow channels accessible only by traditional wooden boats.
  • Discover Lesendro ruins amongst fields of water chestnuts and admire its bird visitants.
  • Try local wine in the middle of the wilderness and take a refreshing swim in the lake’s crystal clear waters.
  • Enjoy the hidden beauty of three islands adorned with thousands of water lilies in Amazonia.
  • Cruise near Morača River, an Important Bird and Biodiversity Area.
  • Start your tour in Virpazar, the main gateway of National Park Lake Skadar. Once you arrive at the meeting point, someone from the Kingfisher team will check you in and explain the next steps. After that, you’re all set to board!

Depart Virpazar’s pier through a lovely canal with reeds and willows. After you exit, the vast water giant, Lake Skadar, will unfurl before your eyes. Continue under the Tanki Rt bridge and discover Lesendro, a centuries-old fortification.

Known as the greatest sorrow of Njegoš, nowadays, Lesendro resembles a utopia for birds. Depending on the time of year, you can observe many avian species as they dry their wings on its ruins and bask in the sun.

In the background, the Vranjina Island rises from the fresh lake waters; on the other side, the lake meets its largest water resource, the Morača River. A little further, you will be gliding near one of the two bird reserves on Lake Skadar.

Amazonia awaits next! The three nearby islets and the view they hide will reveal why Lake Skadar is one of Montenegro’s most captivating places to visit. The endless carpet, woven from white and yellow water lilies and their large, floating, dark green leaves, will take your breath away.

Panoramas on your way back will not disappoint your travellers’ thirst either. They might even make you wonder why you didn’t book the lengthier tour in the first place. To keep you from sobbing over spilt milk, we will provide an extra few minutes for you to enjoy the ideal wilderness around you while taking a refreshing swim.

Breathtaking nature!
It is a fantastic place, nature so close, birds of many species, and these leaves on the water are hard to find anywhere else. Highly recommend!

Friendly staff and fantastic ambience
A pleasant tour with our local guide, enjoying the views of Lake Skadar, stops for photographs and tasting local wines. We didn't swim because the day wasn't scorching.

High value for money!
It is a great attraction, and swimming and jumping into the lake from a boat - is just a fairy tale. Very nice captain and English-speaking guide and a beautiful wooden boat ;)
