Tour Overview

Straddling the ancient traditions of the Balkans and the Mediterranean, North Macedonia is home to a rich cultural pedigree that encompasses Hellenistic, Roman and Ottoman history. Landlocked and framed along its borders by towering mountain ranges, the country is perfect for exploring on foot, with an abundance of flora and fauna that provides a captivating backdrop to this spectacular walking adventure.Beginning with a visit to the famed painted mosque of Tetovo we then take in the breath-taking setting of the Mavrovo National Park. Here, amongst some of the highest peaks in the country we’ll visit Orthodox monasteries and enjoy typical Macedonian hospitality, before venturing on to explore the UNESCO treasures of Ohrid and its spectacular lake. Amongst the towering heights of the Galicica National Park we’ll then trek up to the remote Treskavec Monastery, before heading across the vineyards of the country’s famous wine growing region.After a chance to sample some of the vintages on offer at the Popoya Kula Winery, we’ll end our adventure with visits to the fascinating settings of Kratovo and Heraclea Lyncestis, before a final dinner in the atmospheric streets of Skopje.

Do I book in advance?

"If you're not on a tour, it's important to book places like David Sheldrick in advance as they are a true sanctuary and only open to the public for 1hr each day to limited numbers. It can book up weeks in advance."

What can I do at night?

"Nairobi has a lot of restaurants and bars. My favourite is K1 Clubhouse with regular DJs, life music, an outdoor beer garden and club vibes! Great drinks, food and atmosphere!"
