Magnificent scenery, a real gem of a find! The staff were lovely and made the boat ride very relaxing and easy-going. We were given a free drink on the trip! Going through the lilly pads on the boat and getting out in the lake for a paddle was fantastic. I definitely would recommend this boat trip!

Our holiday was in Budva but as we were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary I thought I would surprise my husband. I arranged for us to visit Virpazar for 2 nights and I am so glad that I did. It is the most peaceful setting. I had read reviews about Sreten and the Golden Frog before we went and therefore... More

I was here with my friends at the beginning of Septemeber. We took a unforgettable trip on the lake with The Golden Frog. Capitan was experienced and he knows many thinghs about Skadar Lake ecosystem, animals, plants and local history. He is a man who loves his job and local nature. The price was fair and included 25 minutes swimming... More

Sreten gave us a hugely memorable tour of this majestic lake. He responded immediately to my email in advance and was waiting for us by the river as planned. He offered a choice of routes and we saw snakes, all kinds of birds and ate fresh water chestnuts. He has a deep knowledge of the history and also of the... More

Golden Frog 為我這個獨行旅遊人準備了一個難忘的遊湖旅程!當我在9月5日早上跳下巴士時,Golden Frog 的Sreten已一眼把我認出,這當然不是難事,因為有多少個中國女子會獨自一人到黑山這小村落遊湖呢?但他竟叫出了我的名字!為使我省點金錢,Sreten找來了一對比利時年青夫婦跟我一起出發,在兩小時行程中,Sreten分享了對鳥類、漁民生活及周邊地區的資料及歷史。坐在他傳統的小船,我們可到湖的每一角落,甚至是最淺水的位置也輕易通過。最特別是Sreten為我們準備了新鮮的菱角及以荷花編造成的頸鍊作為手信! I sent email to Sreten of Golden Frog on 3 September looking for a boat trip on 5 September. He replied on 4 September and promised that everything would be ready when I arrived Virpazar. When I got off the bus and walked to the small village Virpazar, Sreten called my name. He asked me... More

We have just returned from a great trip to Montenegro and this boat trip was one of our favourite activities. We have been travelling with our 12month old so only went out for 1.5-2 hours but I definitely would recommend going for at least this amount of time if you can. It is excellent value at 25 euro per hour... More

We sent several E-mails to Sreten up front. He said to get in touch with him 1 week before arriving. I did sent him an E-mail but we did not get any response. So we traveled to Virpazar and call him direct to have a boat trip. Then we get the message he was full and he did not have... More

We stalked the Golden Frog starting at 7:30am on the morning we woke up in Virzapar. We found Stefan shortly before 9am to see if we could jump on at some point early in the day. It meant a lot that he said he had two passengers at 9am and he would check with them to see if they minded... More

This is simply the best way of exploring Lake Skadar. When you arrive in Virpazar, ignore the aggressive tactics of the other boat trip providers, who will try to get you onto their boat, instead drive on into the village (ample free parking in there). Locate the tourist advice centre and ask the adviser inside to phone The Golden Frog... More

We can thoroughly recommend Golden Frog for a trip around Lake Skadar. The owner Sreten really knows the lake and has a very obvious love for the lake and the conservation of the lake and surrounding areas which made our trip all the more memorable. We went as a family of 4 and enjoyed swimming in the glorious lake. Well... More
