Full description
Upon your arrival someone from the team will provide you all of the information necessary for you to do this experience safely. You start at the center of Virpazar. First you will paddle through a small channel that leads you to the open lake. Next, you aim for the bridge that is situated on your left side. You will go under it. After passing the bridge, on your right side you will see a fortress - Lesendro. If you enjoy watching the birds you should paddle around the fortress which will lead you inside the beginning of river Morača which is considered as an bird reserve. You proceed your experience to the three islands that you have already seen, that are in the middle of the lake. You will aim for the first one and make a circle around it, from right to left side of it. You will have the opportunity to go through the most beautiful part of the lake - small channel that is surrounded by water lillies and reeds covering the water. When on the other side of the island, looking at the shore, you will see few wild beaches and a private one. If you want to take a break and swim to refresh yourself, any of these beaches is the perfect spot. After your brake you just go back under the bridge, aiming for the entrance to the channel leading you back to Virpazar.

It was a great experience to discover Lake Skadar by kayak. The rental was super friendly and we were even allowed to keep the kayak longer for free. All in all a great service and a great experience. Definitely a recommendation for anyone who wants to discover the national park.

We took the 3h trip with the kajak which was just amazing!! The fields of grass and the variaty of birds were stunning. We took a lot of pictures so only go with a fully charged phone! On that day the wind was a little bit strong but the waves were still manageble. The people from the rental said in advance that if we take longer it is no problem unless we get back before it‘s dark. In the middle of the trip we stopped at the second bar after the bridge. We were the only guests at first but a very friendly old lady made us some fries, salat and palatschinka. She was the kindest lady that we have met so far in Montenegro because she really took care of us with her delicious food. She really made our day!! At the bar you can also go for a swim. Most essentials: * water !! (Maybe also some juice) * sunglasses * hat / cap * sun cream You will get a 30L waterproof bag from the rental but we also had one with us to store our stuff. Total time of the trip: 5 1/2h

The tour was awesome. The team explained everything in detail and also showed us an extra way for kajaks. We could even prolong the tour up to five hours without any extra costs. There are several beaches, where we stopped to make a swimming break. Definitely would recommend it.
