Taking a Lake Skadar bird watching tour is the ultimate way to get up close and personal with the lake’s extremely varied bird life.
Lake Skadar and its connected Bojana Delta is one of Europe’s top 5 sites for wintering birds and is also an Important Bird Area. It’s home to the rare Dalmatian Pelican and the world’s second largest colony of pygmy cormorant. Come here at any time of year and you’ll have the chance to see wetland life in all its glory – from glossy ibis and squacco herons to bitterns, grebes, egrets, terns and more.
Here’s a short video about the Dalmatian Pelican on Skadar Lake.
On these Lake Skadar bird watching tours you can go by boat or kayak to the best spots to see a thrilling array of birds while taking in some of Montenegro’s most stunning scenery. You can also hire an English-speaking (or other language) birding expert to go with you.
Spring and early summer will showcase the flamboyant mating rituals of breeding season and during autumn you’ll be treated to the wonder of migration.
The following tours are available any time except July and August. If you’re visiting during these months, we recommend selecting from a Lake Skadar kayak tour or Lake Skadar boat cruise instead.
