Active adventures at Montenegro’s best-kept secret – Lake Skadar National Park

Montenegro’s Lake Skadar is a natural playground for lovers of outdoor adventure, nature and beauty. This largest of Balkan lakes offers an incredible 400 square kilometres of spectacular national park to explore, as well as being home to Montenegro’s wine country. From kayaking, hiking, wild-swimming and caving to boat cruises, culture, wine tasting and gastronomy, there is something for everyone.

Established in 2012, we have put years into researching all the amazing experiences to be had at this outstanding lake. Use the menu above to browse our selection of five-star rated guided tours or to search for local accommodation!

Lake Skadar Adventure Tours has been committed from the beginning to bringing a responsible, sustainable approach to tourism to Montenegro’s national parks. Our tours are high impact in experience but low impact on the environment – and also, crucially, are designed to give back to local people and wildlife. We actively support local pelican conservation and environmental action with a percentage of our annual profits, so when you choose us, you’re giving back too. We have an open pricing policy – our charges are all on this website, with no hidden extras!

Tours run April-October and must be reserved and paid for at least 24 hours in advance. Please also note that we are an on-line agency and have no physical office!

Undiscovered Montenegro

HOT OFF THE PRESS, Europe's nature watchdog, the Bern Convention, meeting today in Strasbourg, has just opened a file to stop the construction of the tourist developments 'Porto Skadar Lake' and neighbouring 'White Village' at Lake Skadar National Park. Their experts are working with Montenegro's Government to ensure this environmentally-precious area of the lake receives top level protection, i.e. no building! We want to thank all our friends & followers who have supported the #SaveSkadarLake campaign and signed the petition. You helped get this issue to the table that matters!

#SustainableTourism #ConservationUživo sa zasjedanja 39og zasjedanja Bernske Konvencije u Strasbourgu koja je podržala naše sugestije da se slučaj Porto Skadar lake i White Village proglasi OTVORENIM. Ovim se pritisak na vladu CG povećava da zaustavi gradnju a zaštiti NP Skadarsko Jezero. Za su bili : Luksemburg, Belgija, Austrija, Francuska, Njemačka, Mađarska. Bugarska je jedna bila protiv.

Live from 39th meeting of the Bern Convention in Strasbourg where the file against construction of Porto Skadar Lake and White Village was OPEN. This is putting additional pressure on Montenegrin government to suspend building permits and protects the national park Skadar Lake.
We were supported by Luxembourg, Belgium, Austria
France, Germany and Hungary. Only Bulgaria was against.

Undiscovered Montenegro

This has to be one of the best undiscovered views in Montenegro! We used a recent sunny day to explore a hidden trail at our favourite National Park, lined with mossy rocks and ripe wild pomegranates. Returning home via the popular horseshoe bend lookout, we were reminded again what an astounding place we've chosen to live and base our travel business!

Europe, the most developed continent, still has amazing wildlife as shown in the latest episode of David Attenborough's 'Seven Worlds, One Planet'. But some species will only survive with dedicated efforts like the Lake Skadar Pelican Conservation Project. Artificial breeding rafts have helped more than double the population of rare Dalmatian Pelican found here (a record-breaking 73 juveniles were born last year!) - but the rafts need maintenance to stay up to the job. On Saturday, we headed out with Andrej Vizi, the pelicans' lead researcher, to measure up for a DIY project to make a brand new raft more accessible for baby birds. Now comes the boring bit - lots of woodwork & varnishing - and with a pressing deadline. Nesting begins in just a few weeks!

Andrej is a specialist guide on our 7 day Montenegro Bird-watching holiday which directly supports pelican conservation at the lake! Find out more at undiscoveredmontenegro.com/search-form-1/birdwatching-holiday-montenegro/
