We booked our 2 hour trip with Golden Frog thanks to previous reviews and were not disappointed. Our guide spoke very good English and supplied us with drinks and commentary throughout. The Skipper was great at spotting and pointing out various birds. Would highly recommend this tour boat for the personal touch and a lot of local knowledge.

The small town at the old Bridge is quiet but very picturesque. This would be such a good Base for hiking, boating & bird watching. There are several restaurants & rooms. The boatmen offer 1hour to 1 day but not a hard sell. A peaceful place to relax.

This lake is beautiful, the scenery amazing and the mountains surrounding it makes it completely stunning. We were hoping to se some pelicans, unfortunately they didn't show up, but the lake is worth the trip anyway. An untouched piece of nature..

We were persuaded by a boat owner,who was obviously a friend of our taxi driver,to take a 2 hour ride at a reasonable price.As soon as we started off,realised it was going to be chilly as the boat's roof kept most of the sun off.Only saw a few birds (have had more in my garden),of which just the white ibis...

An utterly incredible place - one of Europe's most beautiful areas - with spectacular views and biodiversity but not for much longer. Like many natural wonders in the Balkans, planned unsustainable development within the National Park will lead to it's destruction. Go now before it's too late.

It might have been better in the summer but for us we paid 20 Euro each for a 1 hour and 5 minute boat ride in a slow boat. It was a 20'skif with a 8HP motor. We were supposed to have a guide that spoke english but at the last minute we were told that he only spoke russian.... More

This National Park will be a good choice for those who love history and ecological tours. The beauty of the lake will touch even those who rarely go for open air trips. Tranquility and piece -- all you feel when the boat is moving on the mirror surface ... The restaurant on the lake border offers cheap meals (fresh river... More

One of the not-so-hidden treasures of Montenegro, Lake Skadar is an amazing place to visit. Whether you want to hike, stay, boat, wander, it's got lots to see. We took a boat trip with Skadar Lake Cruise, 1-2 hours and enjoyed some of the last rays of summer. Lots of birds, sampled water walnuts and saw a couple of kingfishers,... More

The trip to Skadar lake was a highlight of ours and one which was slightly unexpected. We drove to the small village of Virpazar and on arrival was shown to a free car park and then asked if we would like a lake trip, slightly unsure and a little dubious we followed with the thought of 'what have we to...
