The first day of this amazing tour is simply the day of arrival at Kotor without any organised activities. You get time to relax and see some of the sights you might want to add to your tour. If you arrive early, we can book you some activity from our optional activities on this day or go into the city and see some of the sites that make Kotor popular the country over.
After breakfast, you will be transported by bus from Kotor to Budva. Check-in at your accommodation in Budva, and prepare for an amazing kayaking tour. At 14:00, go to the starting point for your kayak adventure on the fabulous Adriatic Coast and Budva Riviera.

After the briefing, you can start kayaking, swimming, cliff jumping and exploring amazing caves and beaches. You’ll row along the Budva Riviera, beyond the Budva Old Town walls and famous St Nikola Island, as well as around the rocky shore with many caves in which you can paddle or swim. You will also have the possibility to take pictures of the beautiful ramparts of the Old town of Budva. You will make several stops on the many fine sandy beaches for swimming and snorkelling.

Guided Sea kayaking Budva Riviera
If there’s something you’d love to do in Budva, today is the day for it. Wander across the Old Town, take a paraglider flight over Budva or go on a boat tour along the Budva Riviera. Alternatively, enjoy this lazy morning before heading out to the beaches of Budva or doing a shopping spree in town. In the evening, the city starts to gear up for nightlife.
Catch a morning bus towards Old Bar (Stari Bar) located above the Old Town Bar and stretched up to the mountains. Over the centuries Stari Bar has been taken over by the Venetians, the Serbians, the Hungarians, and the Ottoman Empire. It must have once been an impressive fortified town full of dedications to deities, grand buildings for the nobility, and a residential and commercial hub for the common people. For more than a millennium, it was an important part of this region. Today it lies in ruins. The rest of the day is at your leisure.
After breakfast, it's time to check out. You’ll take a train to Virpazar and Lake Skadar. Guided kayaking on Skadar Lake will allow you to take a closer look at one of the last freshwater marshes in the Mediterranean with the largest bird sanctuary, and the last habitat for pelicans in Europe. An additional purpose of this kayaking is to experience the largest lake in the Balkans, its rich flora and fauna, history from various periods and different cultures that left their marks on all these areas. While floating through water-lily pads, you’ll be able to see the numerous small islands with medieval fortifications and monasteries, rare bird species and unique bond of history and nature.
The fisherman's villages with authentic architecture, the beaches, coves and the opulent vegetation, carp and bleak as local specialities, Crmničko wine and Loza brandy - all of these make the magnificence of the region complete. During kayaking, you will have plenty of places and opportunities for swimming. Before you take the afternoon train to Podgorica, try a delicious lunch in some of Virpazar's restaurants. You have a free late afternoon to explore Montenegro's capital city Podgorica, so spend the day exploring the city and local sights. After your short break in Montenegro, it’s time to journey back home or continue the holiday.
