  • Biggest Balkan lake (shared between Montenegro and Albania). National park with a hundreds of bird spices, perfect place for half day trip in Montenegro.  more »
  • In Montenegro for cycle touring, we have spent a substantial portion of the past week cycling around lake Skadar. We have approached the lake from water level and viewed it from the secondary roads...  more »
  • Not a real going on here. We did a boat Tour from Virpazar which was nice enough but not a great deal to look at. Virpazar is a nice little town surrounded by water but it’s a small place and a bit tired and not a great deal to do.
  • Great plast for restink with friends and family, fishing or starting a lake cruise
