From Virpazar: Lake Skadar Boat Tour to Rijeka Crnojevića

72 Reviews

Explore Lake Skadar and its wilderness on a boat tour through the captivating Pavlova Strana fjord and the village of Rijeka Crnojevića. Marvel at the diverse wildlife that calls this lake home.


  • Sail along a narrow river channel bordered by reeds and rows of willows
  • Gaze in awe at an endless carpet of white and yellow water lily flowers
  • Cruise straight through the heart of the picturesque fjord Pavlova Strana
  • Visit Rijeka Crnojevica, a charming townlet on the shore of Lake Skadar
  • Dive into the warm, deep-blue waters of the lake for a refreshing swim


Begin your journey in Virpazar, the tiny fishing village located in the heart of Lake Skadar. Leave its dock, sailing along a narrow river channel bordered by reeds and rows of willows. Uncover the deep-blue waters of Lake Skadar as you exit. Admire views of mountains far away in Albania; and Vranjina, the island just in front of you, with two peaks proudly standing against the largest lake in southern Europe. Turn left, and go under the nearby bridge. Discover the 18th-century fortress Lesendro as you glide through the endless fields of water chestnuts carpeting the lake. Spy birds lining up along the remains or soaring through the sky. Observe them dry their feathers and enjoy their beauty and sound as you start smelling the wild thyme in the summer breeze. Marvel at the three nearby islets and the view they hide - meadows of white and yellow water lily flowers with their large, floating, dark-green leaves. Pass through the fjord Pavlova strana and reach Little Venice - the old fisherman's village named by the river - Rijeka Crnojevića. The historical meaning of this townlet, authentic architecture and beautiful natural surroundings construct a perfect atmosphere for you to experience true Montenegrin mentality. After exploring the village (you have around 1 hour to do that), climb aboard your boat again and head back to Virpazar. In the meantime, don't forget to pack your sunscreen, swimsuits and towels! Grab your opportunity and swim in the refreshing waters of Lake Skadar, surrounded by magnificent views.
