Uvac Boat Tour with a visit to the famous viewpoint

May 9, 2024

4-hour long sightseeing boat tour on Uvac Lake with sightseeing  of Ice Cave and climb to canyon's best viewpoint

Embark on a serene boat cruise on the tranquil waters of Lake Uvac, a gem nestled in the scenic landscapes of western Serbia. This unique adventure is perfect for nature lovers and those seeking a peaceful escape. Your journey begins with a gentle boat ride across the azure lake, renowned for its stunning serpentine meanders and vibrant biodiversity, including the majestic griffon vultures soaring above. It is easiest to come to Uvac if you are staying at the nearby Zlatibor Resort. But many tourists in Belgrade are hiring our limousine service for a round-trip from Belgrade. That is also a convenient way to have a comfortable day trip in Serbia regardless that it is a much longer drive than from Zlatibor.

As you glide across Lake Uvac, your next stop will be the Molitva viewpoint. Accessible by a short hike from the shore, Molitva offers breathtaking panoramic views of the Uvac meanders — a perfect spot for memorable photos and a moment of tranquility. The landscape from this vantage point encapsulates the beauty of unspoiled nature, with the river winding through lush greenery and dramatic cliffs.

The exploration continues as you delve into the Ice Cave, a hidden marvel accessible only by boat. Inside, you'll discover a cool, mysterious world of stalactites and stalagmites formed over millennia. The cave's natural ice formations and eerie echoes create an atmosphere of adventure and wonder, making it a highlight of the Uvac cruise.

This cruise not only offers a chance to witness some of Serbia's most stunning natural attractions but also provides a peaceful retreat from the bustling world outside. Whether you're a seasoned traveler or a curious explorer, cruising Lake Uvac, visiting the Molitva viewpoint, and exploring the Ice Cave are experiences that promise to enrich your soul and leave you with lasting memories.
