Lake Skadar National Park is one of the lesser-known areas to Dubrovnik tourists. The region looks much more like something out of Vietnam than it does in Europe. The area is covered in pine forests, mountains, and small villages, while the lakes are spotted with lily pads and home to much wildlife. It’s also a great place to indulge in local cuisine for great prices.
There aren’t many tour operators visiting Lake Skadar compared to Kotor or Budva. It would also be impossible to see all three in one day. However, if you were more interested in nature, I would recommend visiting Lake Skadar instead, either by private tour or renting a car.
