Full description
Leave the dock in Virpazar through a small and narrow river enveloped with reeds and willows, and you will find yourself at the open lake. Examine the lake while marvelling at its size and observing the distant mountains in Albania. Continue your journey left, under a nearby bridge and discover Lesendro, an 18th-century fortress, gliding through the fields of water chestnuts – kasaronje. Have your breath taken away by the view hidden behind the three islets. As you continue gazing at the proud Montenegrin coast, you will find yourself in a small fishermen's village named Karuč. Like any other village on Skadar Lake, Karuč is tiny - yet, it is a giant in terms of history and nature. In this hidden gem of Skadar Lake, you can feel the spirit of past times and enjoy the mesmerizing environment. Karuč was the village from where fishermen used to go fishing, as the Karuč Eye was known for the abundance of bleak. There are still ruins of the houses that the fishermen were using to store their nets and other equipment. You will have around one hour to explore the village. After that, we will return to Virpazar. Meanwhile, expect a stop for swimming. Don't forget to pack your swimsuits because you do not want to miss diving inside the fresh waters of Skadar Lake.

Accueil parfait , ballade de 4 heures trop longue en cette période d août. Le niveau d eau étant plus bas , tous les sites ne sont pas accessibles et par exemple nous n avons pas pu aller au Nord du Lac. Donc 3 heures maximum en août. A faire le matin départ vers 8h , moins de monde et moins chaud.
