Skadar Lake Cruise to Monastery Kom
Explore the wild beauty of the Skadar Lake, offering you spectacular sceneries. Discover native bird species as you cruise along the Moraca River. Visit the 16th-century Monastery Kom and take in breathtaking views from the nearby hill.
Climb aboard your boat and set off to see the magnificent 18th-century fortress of Lesendro while admiring the breathtaking sceneries around you.
Cruise along the Moraca River, a bird reserve with up to 15 different species. Depending on the time of year, you'll spot native birds such as cormorants, seagulls, and if you're lucky, even pelicans. Cruise along the narrow channels of the Skadar Lake and gaze in awe at the carpets of beautiful lily flowers and reeds. This area is often called the safari part of the lake because it resembles wild passages in old forests. If you are lucky, you will have the chance to see some nests with baby birds in it.
Discover the three beautiful islands of Small Cakovica, Big Cakovica, and Lipovnjak and continue through a similar small channel leading you to Odrinska Gora, the home of the Monastery Kom. Listen to the tales and stories about its past and get acquainted with the lifestyle of the monks residing here. Marvel at the artworks inside the monastery and take time to explore this hidden island gem.
Then, board your boat again, returning to the meeting point. On the way back, your captain will take an alternate route, so you can admire the three islands from the other side. You'll also have the chance to go for a swim in the refreshing waters of the lake. Be sure to bring your swimsuit!
