It is an inexhaustible richness of beauty and diversity – fairytale water fields of water lilies and colorful reeds, flocks of birds, islands with medieval monasteries, small fishing villages, beaches, lake cruises with breaks for swimming…. It will leave you speechless.

What else is great on Lake Skadar? – The seasons give this space different shades and new pleasures. We spend spring, summer, autumn on Lake Skadar and every season has its own charm.

This gem of Montenegro should be seen and experienced, but also you should discover all its sights through historical and interesting stories of a licensed tourist guide of AVE tours. They know how to evoke the events of the past in this area, as well as the culture, customs, life and habits of the local population.

Skadar Lake – through the seasons

Skadar Lake National park- through the seasons

During this excursion, we will visit the Visitor Center on Lake Skadar, where the contents of all five national parks of Montenegro, which make up about 10% of the territory of the smallest country in the Balkans, are presented in an authentic way. National parks are areas of special beauty, significant and rare natural phenomena.

The differences and contrasts of protected areas of Montenegro will satisfy different tastes – Lovćen massif descends to the sea shore, across the swampy shores of Skadar Lake, north we reach the rainforest of Biogradska Gora, Durmitor lakes and deep canyons, all the way to the heights of Prokletije.

Lake Skadar National Park has been protected as a Ramsar site since December 25, 1995, when it was inscribed on the Wetland List of International Importance, especially as waterfowl habitat.

  3. Irja

    Me and my friend went to this tour today and it was very nice! We had a long tour on the boat including snacks and wine and afterwards, time to swim in the lake and some local food directly at the lake. Very nice guide! I can totally recommend 🙂

  4. Tanja Muzik

    Thank you AVE Tours for an unforgettable day discovering so much more than Lake Skadar. Emil our guide was great, knowlegeable, with a great sense of humour. He picked us up near our hotel and we were lucky to be the only 2 guests in the tour, so we had him as a private guide and learnt so much from him about the politics, economy, history and geography of Montenegro. The boat trip was very pleasant and we received some local specialities on board to eat. Sadly we did not see any pelicans, as this depends on the time of the day, so Emil told us. The fish lunch was an experience – a whole fish grilled in a salt crust, it was delicious! Everywhere people knew Emil so we got to meet locals at every stop. I can recommend this tour which was well organised.

    • AVE Tours team

      Dear Tanja,

      Thank you very much for your positive feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed the beauty of the Skadar Lake National Park and that you had a great time with Emil. We hope to see you again on a new trip.

  5. Ryan Ramey

    We enjoyed our Skadar Lake tour! The tour started with a journey through the museum where we had a wonderful guide who explained all the National Parks of Montenegro–it was very informative! Next, we boarded a boat and spent a couple of hours cruising around the lake seeing the beautiful birds and plants. Duško and Ivana told us if we were lucky we might see Pelicans. And we were lucky! We saw many Pelicans and were able to watch them swim and fly. Beautiful! After that we went to a restaurant and beach only accessible by boat where we relaxed, swam, and were able to eat the wonderful fish meal prepared there.

    Thank you AVE Tours for a wonderful trip!

      I was picked up at the place agreed in right time. We visited the interesting visitor center at Skadar lake and after that we had a wonderful boat tour. There was much more to see and experience than I had ever tought there would be and we even saw pelicans! During the tour we had delicious priganice with honey and cheese, wine and juice.
      After the tour we went to a restaurant by the lake where we could swim, relax or have some wine or beer before the really delicious fishmeal.
      The tour was overall great and the driver/guide was really nice and cared about everybody in the group.
      A wonderful day to remember 😊
