General info 

Straddling the border between Montenegro and Albania, Skadar Lake is the largest freshwater lake in the Balkans and one of the largest in Europe. Two-thirds of the lake belong to Montenegro, and thanks to its location, it is a home to a vast number of wildlife species, with the largest bird reserve in Europe. 

The lake is known for being the last remaining breeding ground of the endangered Dalmatian Pelican and Pygmy Cormorant. It’s also a key resting place for birds migrating from northern Europe to Africa.

Overview of the tour 

We introduce the tour with a cruise through natural, lilypad lined canals, and birdwatching opportunities, before a lunch stop at a boutique restaurant serving national cuisine with a view. After lunch has settled, we take a dip in the freshwater before heading back to Virpazar on a balmy midafternoon cruise.

Dodosi is an ancient fishing village, located by the Karatuna River. Initially an agricultural settlement, its proximity to the lake soon shifted the focus from agriculture to fishing. The village is peppered with stone houses, as an insight to Skadar architecture and lifestyle throughout the ages.
