Virpazar: 3-Hour Skadar Lake Cruise to Monastery Kom

1. Virpazar: 3-Hour Skadar Lake Cruise to Monastery Kom

Climb aboard your boat and set off to see the magnificent 18th-century fortress of Lesendro while admiring the breathtaking scenery around you. Cruise along the Moraca River, a bird reserve with up to 15 different species. Depending on the time of year, you'll spot native birds such as cormorants, seagulls, and if you're lucky, even pelicans.  Cruise along the narrow channels of the Skadar Lake and gaze in awe at the carpets of beautiful lily flowers and reeds. This area is often called the safari part of the lake because it resembles wild passages in old forests. If you are lucky, you will have the chance to see some nests with baby birds in it. Discover the three beautiful islands of Small Cakovica, Big Cakovica, and Lipovnjak and continue through a similar small channel leading you to Odrinska Gora, the home of the Monastery Kom. Listen to the tales and stories about its past and get acquainted with the lifestyle of the monks residing here. Marvel at the artworks inside the monastery and take time to explore this hidden island gem.  Then, board your boat again, returning to the meeting point. On the way back, your captain will take an alternate route so you can admire the three islands from the other side. You'll also have the chance to go for a swim in the refreshing waters of the lake. Be sure to bring your swimsuit!

What people are saying about Cetinje Municipality

The trip met our expectations 100%. The lady at the information desk informed us in detail (English fluently) about the trip plan - where we are going and what we will see. The captain was very nice and smiling, there was refreshment (tasty pancakes) and wine, the captain, after welcoming him, assured him that he would answer all questions about the cruise, and it was like that. The trip lasted about 3 hours 15 minutes. There was no bathing in the lake, because it was raining for several days and there were no people willing to do so, but I think that if during a few-minute stop in the middle of the lake someone would decide, it would not be a problem :) We only regret that the weather was uninteresting :)

The boat trip was canceled due to bad weather. Very good communication with the local organization via whattsapp who kept us informed whether or not it could go on the next day. Wonderful boat trip in a fantastic nature. Fritters, wine and water provided for everyone and more than enough. Recommended!

If you are in the area, the boat ride must be done. Perfect organization, you will not miss anything. Only thing: the wild parking. Arrive early.

very nice tour - stop at a monastery as a vantage point and stop for swimming - we really liked it

Everything went smoothly, I recommend the trip to everyone.
