Landlocked and sandwiched between Albania, Serbia, Bulgaria and Greece, Macedonia is a mountainous country with extensive wilderness areas that make it a paradise for mountain bikers. Our bespoke itinerary takes us on a tour of the best riding, transferring between locations, staying in family-run hotels and with time for sightseeing in Tetova, Ohrid (UNESCO Heritage Site) and Bitola, as well as a spot of wine-tasting. Predominantly off-road riding on tracks and trails, our explorations take us to the Shar Planina Mountains, the stunning Mavrovo and Galicica national parks, Golemo Ezero (Big Lake), Mariovo and into the Vodno Mountains above Skopje. With a selection of excellent day-rides, far-reaching views and a wealth of ancient ruins and cultural interest, this Macedonian adventure has something for everyone.
Please note that we are selling this cycling holiday in conjunction with our Macedonian ground agent. Groups can include those who have booked through KE and those who have booked directly with our ground agent. The same holiday price is paid in each case and the groups are led by an English-speaking Macedonian guide.

FAT TYRE ADVENTURE. Averaging 45 kilometres each day, with approximately 1000 metres of ascent and ascent, largely on rough mountain roads and forest tracks, with some sections of non-technical singletrack, this is a holiday for regular weekend bikers with a reasonable level of fitness. We will be riding for between 4 and 6 hours on each day. Baggage is transferred between hotels each day and there are several short transfers, but no vehicle support during the day-rides.
