Skadar Lake: Self-Guided Bird Tour & Kayak Rental

1. Skadar Lake: Self-Guided Bird Tour & Kayak Rental

Drift around water lilies and reeds as you kayak through one of the biggest bird reserves in Europe. Spot Skadar Lake’s 270 bird species, including cormorants, gulls, and squacco. Take in the natural beauty at your own pace with one-hour, two-hour, and whole-day booking options. Begin your adventure in Virpazar with a basic safety and route briefing. Paddle through the open lake to a bridge that connects two villages, Virpazar and Vranjina, known as Little Venice. Take a break for fresh fish soup at the local restaurant if you’re feeling peckish before heading to Fort Lesendro.  Glide past the bird sanctuary and around the islands of Cakovica and Kamenik. Lounge in the sun at the local beaches and swim in the clear lake waters.

Virpazar: Skadar Lake Private Wildlife Cruise & Wine Tasting

2. Virpazar: Skadar Lake Private Wildlife Cruise & Wine Tasting

As the boat leaves Virpazar, you will first cruise under the bridge and around Fort Lesendro, built in the 18th century. As you head out onto the lake, you will be able to see many species of birds, especially cormorants and seagulls. You may even see pelicans drying their wings on top of the fort’s walls if you are lucky enough. After that, you will cruise along the Moraca river. This area is a bird reserve and you will have the privilege to see up to 15 different bird species, depending on the time of the year. Next, the boat will proceed inside the small and narrow channels that are surrounded by water lilies and reeds. If you are lucky enough, you may have the chance to see some nests and baby birds. The boat will then cruise around three beautiful islands - Small Cakovica, Big Cakovica, and Lipovnjak. On the other side of the islands, you will have free time to go swimming, with the beautiful mountain wreath in the background.

What people are saying about Shkoder County

Hi, we did a kayak tour for the first time. Everything was explained to us very well and everyone was very helpful. It was a great pleasure for us to drive and discover the lake ourselves. ☀️ In terms of strength, the two-hour tour was sufficient for us

Beautiful place, kayaks really enable you to feel closer to the birds without scaring them off like a noisy motor boat.

Eagle Boat Cruise were excellent. They had everything ready for us, and were friendly and helpful.

We really enjoyed the boat trip. Please don't expect too much from the wine tasting!
