It was end of September and rainy. Because of covid situation in a boat was only 4 men. Disappointing that in national park on the river so much garbage. A lot of birds. View is ok, beautiful. But we spent 150 euros for whole trip : 70 for two of us for 2 hours boat trip, 50 to rent a car to get this place and about 40 to eat in local restaurant. And for this money i would say its small pleasure, will fit for you if there is nothing else to do in Montenegro, like in our situation cause - was rainy, and we decided to go there.

The park as such is worth to visit, but the best views to the lake and birds you can only get if you take a boat trip. This year the prices are very okay for tourists. We took 1h ride and for Children that was good enough. Lake is huge. What we did not like was the pressure on land from all agencies to take a tour. We felt like in Tunis again. There is also 1 guy at the entry who helps with parking, but then makes too much pressure to get a trip from him. When we took in another place he became rude.

We drove from Podgorica to Tirana, and the drive through the mountains and around the lake was just spectacular! Qe really couldn't get enough of this stunning landscape, especially from the top of the mountain looking down at the lake in the valley below. Just breathtaking views!

We decided to spend our last day in Montenegro visiting the lake. The trip was quite interesting, the nature is very pristine. We stayed in a house located a bit up on a hill with a spectacular view, the owner being super super nice and carrying. The region has a significant touristic potential but is still not very developed (which has an advantage as well because the area is still rustic and people not that perverted with money - m thinking here of dubrovnik where the attitude and prices are both up on the roof). You can take a boat for 2 hours, 3 hours or 4 hours. We took the 3 hour trip, saw a lot, probably 4 hours would have been a bit too long for our tastes. However with the 3 hour trip you won t see the “fjord” which is on the north corner of the lake, located in the inner curve of a horse shoe shaped river that inundates and creates swamps. On the border of the lake you can see virgin forests, or naked dry hills. Further south you can see taller beautiful mountains which spread south to create the Albanian alps. Water is warm and nice to swim in .. In terms of the prices the trip has a lot of benefit - not being part of eu the country is still cheap (you cross the border to croatia and prices are double). Food in the corner is pretty good, you can find nice fresh fish, fresh fish soups. I would definitely take a hiking trip in the bioreservation (well my friend was not too much into these kind of activities and didnt want to do it). The sceneries are spectacular so if you have the good company you should hike on the mountains around the lake.
