Wake up early-morning and enjoy the calmness of Lake Skadar. Warm yourself up with a cup of coffee or tea, and let us lead you through the hidden paths of birds. Admire them as they soar through the sky and enjoy their victorious sound. Begin your journey in Virpazar - the townlet on the shores of Lake Skadar. Climb abroad your čun - the traditional wooden boat this area is known for. Sit back and enjoy the calmness as we lead you through the paths where birds like to 'hang out'. Have a coffee or tea to warm yourself up and binoculars to better observe the birds. Watch them closely as they soar through the waking sky or dive deep into the lake's waters to catch their breakfast or lunch. Hear the stories the lake hides and learn about its unique ecosystem that attracts a large variety of birds. Depending on the season, you can see black cormorants, gulls, coots, kingfishers, white and grey herons, eagles, turns, a range of ducks etc. Dalmatian pelicans are the symbol of the lake and a perfect ambassador. This one is hard to see, but let us check our luck - it's often on our side!
