What to Expect

Kayaking on Skadar Lake is one of the most sought-after activities that can take place in the National Park. Given the characteristics of the lakes that allow this activity to take place from April to November, kayaking is the right choice for water sports lovers. It is possible to reach all hidden places and enjoy the nature without any noise. This type of lake driving is mostly recommended for its ecological aspect as well as for the spread of awareness of the protection of the National Park Skadar Lake.

Skadar Lake represents an oasis for all nature lovers. There are 264 species of birds on the lake, 18 species are regular passersby, 45 species are winter guests, 12 species regularly spend the summer without stumbling. The reason for this diversity of birds is the ecological and geological characteristic as well as the unevenness of the ecosystem. Most often, cormorants, gray white and yellow herons, mussels, wild ducks, barcuts and so on can be seen. Spectacular place is certainly taken by Pelican.

The Crnojevića River is a place that will capture you with its unique ambience. At the entrance to the River Crnojevića there is a stone bridge, known as the Danilov Bridge. It was raised by Prince Danilo.

Along the bridge, on the left bank of the river, he built a one-storey house known as “Mostina”. This old house has been preserved to this day and has retained its name, becoming a recognizable symbol of this region.

The oldest preserved object in the Rijeka Crnojevića is the house of St. Peter, whose construction has begun to form the urban look of the settlement and especially a somewhat later formed street line.

Due to the picturesque ambience and relaxing atmosphere, the Crnojevića River serves as a refuge and inspiration for numerous artists for organizing painting colonies and pleasant socializing.

It is definitely a region that should be visited if you are looking to enjoy nature with activities where everything feels like adventure, to taste delicious organic foods and have fun. Come to experience when you are alone, with your friends or family on your adventure with a kayaking on the famous Skadar Lake with Crnojevića River:
