Enjoy a multi-activity villa holiday at Lake Skadar - recommended by National Geographic and Lonely Planet!

Secluded beaches, hidden rock-pools, fine wines and incredible scenery will ease you into a different pace of life on a week-long activity holiday at a gorgeous villa, right inside the borders of Lake Skadar National Park. Owned and run by Undiscovered Montenegro, Villa Miela accommodates small groups of up to ten, with three double/twin bedrooms and one family room (each with private bathroom), an enormous terrace with a hot-tub/plunge pool and sumptuous views over the lake and valley. It also comes with its very own orchard of organic figs, plums, mulberries and pomegranates! It's the perfect base for families, couples and groups of friends to explore Lake Skadar or just hang out, relax and drink in the views.

Tour 1 - 'Explore and Discovery Day'

An unforgettable car and hiking combination tour. We will drive past breathtaking views, hike to rock-pools for wild swimming, visit bat-inhabited caves before lunching at a former royal residence in historic Rijeka Crnojevića. We then jump back in the 4x4 for more stunning views, wild river swimming and then heading across a magnificent plain that would not look out of place in Africa. The breathtaking view from the ancient fort of Zabljak Crnojevića is our final stop before returning to Virpazar. _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Tour 2 - Kayak Safari

Suitable for all levels of fitness, this 4-5 hour kayak trip will take you across stunning mirrored waters from Murići on the southern shores, (also home to the lake's best freshwater beach), with views up to the fabled peaks of Albania's Prokletian mountains. You'll have the lake all to yourself as you swim in crystal clear waters and visit the lake's renowned 14th century island monastaries, all the while taking in the awesome views, varied bird-life and glorious solitude.

Beginners are welcome - your guide is a UK qualified instructor! _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Tour 3 - "Walnut Valley" hike

Our favourite hike - this circular trail passes through ancient woodland, across arched Ottoman bridges and along riverside trails and old Roman caravan paths as it winds its way through one of Lake Skadar's most beautiful valleys. We stop for wild swimming in natural spring-fed pools before hiking to the beautiful hillside village of Dupilo for lunch with a local family. This is unspoiled and undisturbed nature, with wild figs, herbs and tortoises in abundance! Best of all, you won't have to share them with other tourists; this is our secret!

Tour 4 - Wine Tasting

Crmnica Valley, where Villa Miela is located, is Montenegro's wine-country. The red vranac and white krstač wines are easily a match for their more famous French rivals. We'll take you to three boutique wineries in the villages of Godinje, Limljani and Boljevići where you can sample from the barrels yourselves, view the vineyards and learn about the the proud history of wine-making in Lake Skadar Valley. You can even take the option of having a private lunch or dinner at a winery, with the best organic produce, washed down with copious quantities of delicious wine! _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
