In the summer months, the boat tours are always enjoyable. The fact that Serbia has no sea does not mean that you have to be deprived of cruising on a small boat on one of the many Serbian rivers and lakes. The boat rides in Serbia can be a memorable travel experience.
This post is only about few-hours long boat rides. We excluded the Danube multi-day cruisings in big ships.
We will recommend to you the best boat tours & short cruising trips in Serbia.
If you do not want to travel far away from Belgrade, you can choose the best cruises on the Sava and Danube. But for some very attractive boat rides, you will have to travel a little further to places such as Uvac, Tara, and Djerdap. In any case, from landing at the airport in Belgrade to all your other trips around Serbia, Serbia Transfers is at your service.
Many tourists are willing to go on 3-hour drive from Belgrade to the Uvac River Canyon, and with good reason. Uvac is one of Serbia's landmarks. Due to the inaccessible terrain of the Uvac canyon, the best way to see the lake Uvac and the canyon is to cruise in a small boat. All cruising tours start from the dam at the lake.
Most Uvac boat rides are about 4-5 hours long cruisings with sightseeing stops. Hiking to the best viewpoints of Uvac Canyon and visiting the ice cave are included in all boat tours at Uvac lake.
Always bring your jacket. The cave is cold even in summer. And keep in mind that hiking to viewpoints requires a good physical condition.

The Danube is the second largest river in Europe. Serbia and Romania have the honor to share the most beautiful part of the Danube River - the Djerdap Gorge. Djerdap National Park is certainly a great destination for your private day trip from Belgrade, and a boat cruise on the Danube through the Djerdap Gorge is one of the biggest tourist attractions in Eastern Serbia.
On most boat rides lasting about 2-3 hours, you can see the Great Kazan, the Little Kazan, the Tabula Traiana, and the Decibel Statue. Some longer tours include a visit to Lepenski Vir, a cruise through the Iron Gate of Djerdap, and a visit to the Golubac Fortress.
