Be prepared to raise your adrenaline whilst enjoying exciting, though moderate climbs in the mountains. And be sure – your effort will pay off.
Our biking activity starts in the village of Velestovo, off road uphill to the Krstec pass. On the way up you will enjoy the views towards Ohrid valley and Ohrid Lake. You will explore a trail on dark-red soil resembling the surface of Mars at 1450 m.a.s.l. (4600 ft.). Visit the only island in Macedonia on Lake Prespa, Golem Grad (Pelican Island). The uninhabited island is home to an endemic Foya juniper variety (a type of tree), numerous birds (pelican, cormorant) and lots of snakes (that is why it is also known as the snake island). Little hiking adventure to the Lakoj Signoj peak 1970 m.a.s.l (6500 ft.), the location where both lakes meet like two pearls on the palm of the hand. Next is a very spiritual place, the monastery of St. Naum and the magical springs of the River Black Drim. We will have the opportunity to visit the Bay of Bones, prehistoric pile dwelling settlement from the 2nd millennium to the 8th century B.C. The night before departing to Skopje Airport, you will taste the uniqueness of our local wines and visit the wine region Tikveš.
