  • I honestly cannot understand the rave reviews ... .... 1-boat captain (at least our) absolutely a Mummy: didn't say a word all the way round, 2-3 words of English he knew right rudeness media Virpazar villagers from which the tour that touches the far-fetched 3-Lake absolutely nothing that: 2 hour tour barbosissima with almost nothing to see than many other parks I have visited other countries spending on the tour boat and 10 euro 4 for the entrance to the Park. Not recommended, in my opinion

  • At Virpazar drive. Free parking at the entrance. Just after the bridge, on the left, there are boat rentals. We price a "private" family boat €65 (+ €4 per persons) for 3 hours of walk for 4 people, drinks and doughnuts included. As well as a reduction in a small restaurant in the city. The "guide" didn't speak any English, but he was funny and friendly. The landscapes are beautiful, bathing enjoyable, even if the water in the Lake is "opaque"! We have not seen a lot of birds. It is the only interest of Virpazar... We came away almost as soon as the complete ballad...

  • Ivana's boat trip was the highlight of our stay. The care and attention she gives her guests is amazing, from the cold drinks and homemade nibbles provided to the information she gives about the lake....  more »

  • I loved it! Totally going back again one day! Restaurant nearby had amazing lake fishes, and even tough i have never tried before they were exceptional. Personnel very friendly.
  • We took boat ride from Virpazar June 2017 and we had beautiful one hour on the lake (2 people 25€ plus 4€ per person park fee). We encountered numerous birds and seen some nice historical building remains. Our boat driver was pleasant and give us some interesting info (in local language) of surrounding and life here but was in no way professional tour guide :). We enjoyed this wiser very much.
  • Beautiful lake. Can recommend a boat trip. The 2 hours version including swimming break on the lake is really nice. The golden frog offers a very good service and will provide drinks and food on the boat.
  • Another amazing place in Montenegro. Fist, the horseshoe canyon is absolutely gorgeous. You can also see the mountains far in the distance . The trip with the boat, although only an hour long is well worth it.
  • We took an early morning boat trip for a couple of hours. Although expensive, we enjoyed it a lot - the lake is beautiful!
