1. Virpazar: Lake Skadar Wilderness Boat Trip
Start your sightseeing cruise in Virpazar, the lovely fishing village built on the shore of Lake Skadar. Depart from its pier through a small river canal fringed with reeds and willow trees. Admire the views of the mountain ranges far away in Albania and Vranjina - the nearest island, rising defiantly from the fresh waters of one of the largest lakes in southern Europe. Go left under the nearby bridge and discover Lesendro - the Key of Lake Skadar. Built in the 18th century this beauty still hides the eternal sorrow of Njegoš. Approach this beautiful fortification as you glide through meadows of water chestnuts and observe remarkable birds dry their wings on top of its walls. Watch Cormorants, Gulls, Herons, Coots and Kingfishers, among many others, enjoy the sun touching their feathers. Have your breath taken away by the view hidden behind the three islets - thousands of white and yellow water lilies and their large, floating, dark green leaves. If you are lucky enough, get the chance to see some nests and baby birds. Witness sights on the return journey that will not disappoint either. Take your time and enjoy the perfect wilderness while taking a refreshing swim. Seize your chance and have a dip in the fresh, deep-blue waters of Lake Skadar, wrapped by scenic views. After immersing in fresh waters, return to Virpazar.
