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!

Absolutely fantastic! Highly recommended. The lake is really an exceptional place and the crew of Kingfisher is wonderful. We had some issues on the road to get there and the staff did everything they could to ensure we made it to our tour. The captian was very helpful and slowed down so we could enjoy the view and take pictures. It was truly a great experience.

A very nice trip! There were two of us and we are a 30 year old couple. We think the outing is a bit cool big and small. The boat was small, so everything was very quiet and not overcrowded. The view from the monastery was great! There was free wine and snacks. Definitely great value for money!

Everything went well and as described. The landscape is impressive and all employees are very friendly and helpful. It was really worth it.

Nature is just a dream. Driving through this body of water is unique. You can even go swimming, which is totally relaxing.

Great exotic experience on this beautiful lake! Bird watching, lake views, swimming
