Skadar Lake

Stand Up Paddle tour in Albania is the perfect combination for watersports and wildlife passionate lied on Skadar Lake and Buna River. Great way to experience wild nature life in the unexplored before areas that gave Shkodra its main values. The biodiversity with the Whiskered Tern (Chlidonias hybrida), Dalmatian Pelican (Pelecanus Crispus), and Water Lilly Flowers (Nyphar Lutea and Nymphaea Alba) are the rock stars of this trip that looks like a visit in the botanic park where the scenery changes every hour completely like the smartphone swipe. From the immense view of the greatest lake in the Balkans to the Ramsar strict protected area. This IBA area is a well-valued nesting area for the Whiskered Tern (Chlidonias hybrida) and a resting area for the Dalmatian Pelican (Pelecanus Crispus) and hundreds of other birds explained by the Nature Guide during the entire trip
