Guests say it's special and unique.

What you'll do

I greet you by a welcome homemade drinks with which we can talk about things that interest you about the national park, people and life in my fishing village Vranjina which is old more than 200 y. There you can change and get ready to board the boat. Than we jump in traditional fishing wooden boat named "čun" which is registered as a national good of Montenegro. On boat tour you can choose what you like to do: sightseeing, swimming, sunbathing, fishing by rod. I know nice natural beaches which could be reached only by boat. We visit the lake islands and the Lesendro fortress. I can show you beautiful river mouth in the lake, with gorgeous nature - water lilies, huge old willows, bulrush, reed, water caltrop, ducks and birds more than 250 species. We will go through narrow paths that are fishing trails through the most beautiful areas of the lake that only my fishing boat can pass through. I can provide drinks and snacks on tour (additional service not included in price). When return back to Vranjina I can prepare fresh wild fish for you in traditional way if desired by the guest (additional service not included in price). I am sure my guests will have full experience of village and Skadar lake, because I will make an effort so you can see it, feel it and taste it!

I am Drazen, Airbnb host for more than 5 years. I often do excursions for my guests, suggesting them locations which they hardly can visit by agencies and tourist guides. Vranjina is village where I grew up. I have my old house there, traditional fishing boat, fishing equipment. I can offer my guest a lot of experiences and knowledge about lake - fishes, birds, nature, islands, history. I have experience with fishing. I know beaches which could be reached only by boat for swimming. I also make homemade brandies and wine that you will have the opportunity to try. I offer all of it on boat a tour, and could guarantee you will have completely adventure and pleasure.

Eine Bootstour wie beschrieben, leider war das Wetter nicht so gut zum baden trotzdem eine schöne geführte Bootstour von Drazen. Sehr Gastfreundlich, auf Wunsch hätte er noch frischen Fisch für uns zubereitet. empfehlen wir gern weiter.

Drazens Zen experience on Lake Skadar was just phenomenal. From start to finish we had a wonderful time. Drazen is a brilliant host with a lovely calming and peaceful energy. Just what was needed to put us at ease. We loved the rakija at the beginning and the end of our trip. As we have just moved in locally we might be back for more !!! The Lake is just so calming and peaceful and Drazen lets you experience this with just the correct amount of information. His boat is crafted ( by himself) out of wood in the traditional way. You can feel the energy from the boat. We were out on the lake for 2 hours and also stopped at a beach where my wife went for a swim. My young daughter loved looking at all the birds through the binoculars and even saw an eagle above a mountain nearby. I would highly recommend you try this trip and meet Drazen for a truly memorable experience.

The tour with Drazen was excellent. His communication prior to the tour was excellent and clear. It was a very relaxing experience, the lake speaks for itself, his presence is unobtrusive - he didn't need to speak too much but he gave a beautiful introduction to the journey, the lake, his beautiful village and family. Perfect!

We really enjoyed the trip with Draźen, he is a good storyteller. Trip was authentic and interesting. It's great experience in riding in boat across the lake with beautiful mountain views. Draźen and his mother were very hospital, friendly and regardful. We recommend to visit this place when you'll be in Montenegro.

Merci beaucoup pour ce moment c’était formidable. Nous avons eu la chance de n’être qu’à 3 sur le bateau. Nous avons été accueilli avec un short d’alcool local. Puis la promenade en bateau est génial. Nous avons traversé des champs de nénuphars puis sommes arrêté sur une petite plage. Je recommande les yeux fermés et je reviendrais !
