Piva Lake is my favorite place in Montenegro. I want as many guests of the country as possible to see these beauties, plunge and dissolve into them completely. Here you cannot just watch and admire the wonderful beauty of nature, but come in contact with it and even be face to face. This is exactly the tour, where everything depends on your participation, interest and activity.
The road to Piva Lake runs throughout the whole Montenegro. On the way we will see the city of Cetinje, Lovcen National Park, the capital of Montenegro - Podgorica, Ostrog Monastery, Niksic and many other interesting places. During the trip, we’ll make small stops for coffee and a photo pause, stop at the foot of Ostrozkaja chine so that everyone can purchase consecrated brojanica, icons from Ostrog and other religious goods. A surprisingly beautiful, diverse and interesting road will pass by.
After the city of Niksic, the most interesting part is waiting for you - the north of Montenegro, which is completely unlike the coastal regions of the country. There we will make a small stop at the Piva Monastery. It is a unique Orthodox monastery built thanks to funding the Ottoman pasha. At that time, the Turks were afraid to burn it down, and why it happened so is a secret for you right now... The monastery was flooded during the construction of hydroelectric power stations on the Piva River and it more than 10 years, stone by stone, was transferred to a new place.
The main thing that awaits us all during the trip is, of course, the rest on the Piva water reservoir. In the town of Pluzine we will have a snack after a long road (priganicy, prshut, cheese, honey - all homemade), and after that we take a cutter and sail along the lake, the depth of which sometimes reaches 200 meters. It is worth noting that on a clear sunny day the color of the water in Piva lake is simply indescribable - saturated turquoise or malachite, and the purity and transparency of water amazes the imagination. During the boat trip we will visit one of the caves of the lake, in warm weather and at will, we can stop for a bath (1 hour), and then berth to the camp. While you rest on the shore, the owners will cook for dinner a grilled trout with vegetables. You can chat with them during cooking and find out the answers to all your questions, boil coffee at the bonfire, swim and sunbathe, go kayaking, and even try fishing. In addition, there is a footpath with 1 km long, which leads to a "secret" place with a beautiful panorama. After lunch and rest in the camp, we go back. Rest on the lake lasts 4-5 hours.
Upon your wish and agreement, we can visit the Mratinje - the highest dam in Europe, organize a jeep safari or horseback riding.
