  • Had a rest in Montenegro in September 2016g. Take an excursion to Lake scutari, donated. At first we were brought to the Museum, where it was possible to see stuffed animals that are found in the reserve, the museum itself is small, but very cozy and not overloaded with information. Then drove the bus to places where we picked up in a small boat, you can go inside or sunbathe on the roof, overlooking the beauty of the Lake. I went and was enjoying high-water lilies and other aquatic plants, banks in those thickets could see many different birds: dives, herons, cormorants, which stand at kuvshinkah and dry its wings. It was two stops for swimming in the Lake, it was the most interesting part of the walk, the water is clean greenish and refreshing cold, got a lot of positive impressions. We had 30-40 minutes, were treated to raki and doughnuts with honey. Then we went to dinner at a restaurant in one of the old small towns near the Lake.

  • Skadar Lake is included in almost all excursions, and visit the natural reserve of any spa place Montenegro does not make special work. Many ways: through the travel agency, Tour Desk, with a private guide or independently-the choice is wide. Place interesting and visit here at least once completely worth it. Program such excursions can also be different: "change of scenery", a break from the sea and beaches, explore the Lake on a boat or small boat to see the beauty of nature, and if time allows, visit the Islands with their ancient monasteries. However, you need to consider and what excursion on the Lake is one of the most expensive and cost of all excursions in Montenegro.

  • Hi All! My husband and I visited Scadar Lake which is really amazing and wonderful place to see but unfortunately we faced a bunch of dishonest crooks who pretend to be a licensed tour provider but who are obviously not. Those people significantly spoilt out overall experience of Scadar Lake visiting that is why I am writing my review here. It would take me long to write here all story but please: -When booking a private boat check different providers and compare them -Try to figure out whether a provider licensed or not -Don't let be lured by people who try to help with parking in Virpazar and then who try hash to sell you their tours- most likely they are bad. Please avoid a young local guy (unfortunately I didn't have a chance to get his name) speaking pretty good English and offering a tour with an elderly guy who doesn't speak English and his chunky 14-15 years old daughter who pretends to know things about history of the region and about Skadar Lake. She doesn't know much at all. Their boat is much worse than others and has very weak engine so you would go at least twice slower than other boats but you would be pay the same fare- 25 euros per hour. So it would mean you would actually pay twice more expensive. We were so dissatisfied with a tour that we complained and asked for discount at the end. Guess what - after mooring back in Virpazar that young guy who we booked initially the tour with was already waiting for us on the shore with his friend. They started shouting at me and my husband: " we do not care whether you are satisfied with the tour or not! You pay money! Now!" It turned out there was nobody else at the moment around and there was nobody to ask for help, for police. I couldn't image it could happen in a modern world to be racketed like this in the heart of touristic place. We paid the full amount they requested and rushed to our car. We wanted to go to police but than we didn't have no prove, no records so not sure police would help us.
  • Beautiful lake even in cloudy weather
  • Beautiful bay with warm water and amazing views. I'd definitely return.
  • This lake is wonderful place. The Montenegro side is a National Park, the Albanian side is not, but from that side I liked the lake even more. There were duck farms in greenery, low lawns, fresh and lively scenery. I would recommend you to go to Albania, the nature is a garden of Eden in here.
  • Everything was ok. Superb nature, small beach to have some fun...but boats are very expensive.
