Explore Skadar Lake by boat, meet local people and taste homemade traditional products, wine and food, in the small family winery. See Budva old town and St. Stephan island and enjoy the panorama of Budva Riviera from one side and the lake from the other side of the hill.
Visiting Budva old town and through the Budva Riviera, after a short break above St. Stephan island, via panoramic roud to the small town of Virpazar.
Budva is one of the oldest towns on the coast of the Adriatic Sea. It is surrounded by ramparts originating from the XV century including a medieval fortification system with city gates, defense walls, and towers.
Sveti Stefan island is the biggest attraction in Riviera of Budva. The former fishing village situated on a peninsula became a hotel-town 50 years ago and since then is visited by Holywood stars and Royal families.
On other side, Virpazar is a small town on the shores of the lake, but once it was of strategic significance that even the Turks built a fortress above the city that also was used by occupiers in WWI as a prison for the Montenegrin population.
Today this small town is the most popular tourist town in this region of the National Park and the place from where we start the lake boat cruising.
Lake Skadar has been a protected National Park since 1983, and in 2011 was formally nominated for UNESCO heritage status.
The lake is a birder's paradise, with more than 260 different species including the rare Dalmatian pelican.
Here is also possible to organize a lot of activities such as hiking, kayaking, mountain-biking, bird watching, fishing and even more. All activities are available at your request.
This is not all for today. Villages around the lake are famous for wineries used to produce the famous Montenegrin red wine Vranac, a product that Montenegrins are extremely proud of!
As well as wine, locals are proud of brandy and food specialties, which are mostly presented with the story of origin. That's why we have chosen the best small family winery for your special and unique experience.
Just a short drive from Virpazar, we will be welcome by our host and the wine-maker with a great knowledge about the region, food, wine and brandy.
After the story of the village, there follows a story of wine and brandy in a modest family wine cellar there follows the tasting of wine, then snacks and brandy tasting are next on the tour's menu.
As much as you want the beautiful days to never end, the end must come. With us, the end comes with a beautiful view.
