We will guide you to explore the most amazing and secret areas in the mountains & national parks in Macedonia, Albania, Kosovo and beyond.
HIKING IN MACEDONIA
Arguably one of the best and most underrated trekking destinations in Europe, Macedonia has vast mountain ranges and peaks as far as the eye can see. For all experience levels, this is a perfect choice for an active hiking holiday. You can choose technical mountaineering, walks in deep forests and large pastures, or combine shorter excursions with a city break during long weekends.
For long-distance “thru” hikers, Macedonia is also part of several mega trails like the Via Dinarica, which runs across the entire Western Balkans from Slovenia to Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo, and Serbia.
MOUNTAINS AND NATIONAL PARKS
The Shar Mountain Range, the longest in the country, rarely descends below 1800 meters. In these breath-taking mountains (also the beginning of the Macedonia’s cross-country trail), you will enjoy amazing landscapes, cold mountain springs, and walk along the borders of Kosovo and Albania.
You’ll enjoy gentle hikes and visit historical villages in Mavrovo National Park, while witnessing the long tradition of nomadic sheepherding. From Mavrovo you can hike to the highest peak Golem Korab, in both Macedonia and Albania, or enjoy demanding hikes on the steep Deshat mountain peaks.
In Galichica National Park— from the Magaro Peak—and you will have the view of both Prespa and Ohrid Lakes, both natural and millions of years old.
In Pelister National Park, you will enjoy hiking in Macedonia’s southeastern quadrant. Endemic pine forests, granite boulders, and fresh mountain springs accompany you most of the way … as will historical markers from the First world war and views to the Aegean Sea.
