Lake Skadar kayaking tours

"A great experience...we had a wonderful time on the Monasteries tour lead by the lovely Vukoman." Vanessa P, October 2017

"Given it was our honeymoon, Vukoman presented us with champagne and chocolates in the middle of the lake, just awesome! Great company, sun, water, a bit of local history, culture and a good work out! What more could you want?" amylondon2014, August 2017

Kayaking on this astounding lake - the Balkans' largest - is an experience not to be missed. Paddling in silence, far from the crowds, you will see some of the most spectacular natural and cultural sites Montenegro has to offer. Our trips are suitable from age 7-75 years and eco too!

Our fleet of kayaks are Z-Pro Tango inflatables. They're ideal for lake and river kayaking, are super stable and extremely comfortable with great back supports, impossible to capsize and impossible to roll and can carry much more than a rigid sit-on-top kayak. They're also easy to get back into after all the swimming you'll be doing in the lake and Grade 2 rapids tested for toughness. We supply all safety equipment, paddles, buoyancy aids and dry-bags, and National Park tickets are included in all prices.

We are the only Lake Skadar based kayak tour operator and offer unrivalled local knowledge
of the fantastic water trails here.
