1. Skadar Lake: Sightseeing Boat Trip with Refreshments
Discover the beauty of Skadar Lake on a sightseeing boat trip. Depart from the pier from the village of Virpazar and find yourself on the open water. 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, an 18th-century fortress. As you approach this beautiful fortification, observe amazing birds dry their wings on top of the fortress's walls. Watch cormorants, gulls, and herons, among many others enjoying the sun touching their feathers. After that, cruise near the river of Morača, an International Birding Area. Depending on the time of year, you will have the privilege to see up to bird species. Have the view melt before your eyes into thousands of white and yellow water lilies hidden behind the three islets. If you are lucky enough, you may have the chance to see some nests and baby birds. Seize your chance and have a dip in the fresh waters of Skadar Lake, wrapped by scenic views. After immersing in fresh waters, return to Virpazar.
