Tours in Macedonia

Macedonia, snugly tucked away in the heart of the Balkans, is sadly underrated. From the capital Skopje, surprisingly opulent for a former communist city and bursting with innumerable statues, to the expansive mirror-like lakes clean enough to swim in, surrounded by pastoral mountains dotted with villages that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years, Macedonia holidays are full of surprises.

Here there are adventures aplenty. If you’re a keen cyclist, the borderlands of northern Albania and western Macedonia are a vista of sweeping gorges, crystal blue waters and plateaux rising high above lush greenery. Ancient villages lie along the carefully chosen route of our Macedonia trips, which offer cycling that challenges and rewards in equal measure.
