Skadar Lake: Half-day Cruise Tour - the River of Crnojević

1. Skadar Lake: Half-day Cruise Tour - the River of Crnojević

First, you will cruise towards the 18th Century fortress of Lesendro. You will see breathtaking scenery with birds, especially cormorants and seagulls, but if you are lucky enough you will get to see pelicans as well, they love drying their wings on top of her walls, with the beautiful mountain of Vranjina and light blue sky in the backgrounds. After cruising near the fortress of Lesendro you will proceed inside the small and narrow channels that are surrounded by, as we like to call them, carpets of water lily flowers and reeds. This area is often called the 'safari' part of the lake. In this area if you are lucky enough, you will have the chance to even see some nests and baby birds. The boat will then cruise around three beautiful islands - Small Cakovica, Big Cakovica, and Lipovnjak. The boat will than proceed inside the breathtaking fjord Pavlova Strana, which is considered to be the most beautiful place on Skadar lake. It will lead you to an old fisherman's village called the river of Crnojević. Over there you will have around an hour to explore the village.  On the way back the boat will stop at a place surrounded by open water and rough coast and you will have extra time provided for swimming, so be sure to bring your swimsuit.

What people are saying about Shkoder County

Was a totally relaxed tour of the lake. Because the water was too low we couldn't go all the way up the river and the 6 hours turned into 3. The money has been refunded accordingly. A visit to the monastery and a refreshing swim at a water temperature of 27 degrees are only recommended. A glass of wine at the end...

The views alone deserve five stars. Although the wind has not allowed us to follow the planned itinerary, the guide has improvised and we have really enjoyed the activity a lot.

We did the 3 hour tour and the next day the 6 hour tour. The 6 hour tour is great, much more private, saw many species of birds and just flew by. Top

Very pleasant, relaxed tour, lots to see, nice that you could also go swimming.

Amazing Cruise with a very kind Captain. Wort every penny.
