Macedonia- conquer the highest peaks of a hidden gem
19/09/2017 - 24/09/2017
Hiking the Balkans is inviting those of you who spent the spring and summer hiking and are in their peak fitness level to Shar Mountain, a 200km mountain range situated in the north western part of Macedonia. This is where you can challenge yourself during four days of continuous hiking in a mountain rarely visited by tourists. The weather conditions at mid September are perfect for hiking and because of the abundance of water you don’t need to carry too much water with you. Although the mountain is fairly high it is soft on the feet because the terrain isn’t rocky but it is full of meadows where aromatic tea herbs grow. In fact this mountain is known to have the largest number of pastures in Europe. It means challenging hikes throughout this trip and stopping in villages for meals and breaks, to taste food which is not only prepared on the spot but also originates from the local summer farms.
