1. SKADAR LAKE CRUISING AND WINE MAKING OF THE REGION
Starting early to get to see the best of the birdlife of the Lake. Skadar Lake National Park is the zone with over 280 different bird species, with special accent to Dalmatian Pelican, which is nesting on the Lake. Lake cruise coloured with water lilies and water caltrops which will landscape your way through a small jungle like channels on the way to the island monastery. Passing between “Goat and Sheep Islands”, you will reach the only sacred place in the Lake area, which was never destroyed and originates from the 15th century. Beautiful views of the Lake landscape, but also a quick sight of the tombs of the rulers who belonged to the Crnojevic Dynasty, or a chat with the monks of the monastery. Lunch served at small local winery with different varieties of red wine and some homemade juices for youngsters.
2. TRADITIONAL HONEY MAKING IN OLD ROYAL CAPITAL
Discover old Cetinje Monastery, the symbol of freedom in the centuries’ long fight of Montenegrins; learn the story of the Billiard House, marvel at former foreign embassies, dating from the time when Montenegro was a kingdom. The highlight of the tour is a look inside King Nikola’s palace, seat of the Petrovic royal family, a dynasty that ruled Montenegro for over 200 years. Then we will take you to see the honey making techniques and traditions of our hosts and taste some homemade liqueurs followed by traditional Montenegrin lunch.
3. INTERTWINED PATHS OF TRADITION AND TASTE
A bit of everything – walking the old stone village, almost abandoned after the dreadful earthquake back in 1979. Story of the area by local guide followed with drive by the Skadar lake shore all the way to one of the islands. Get into the kayaks and head to the island with medieval monastery and nuns who will tell you their story and history of the place and the area. Unique experience. End a day on a high note, with wine tasting in a small local winery in this famous wine making region.
