1 DAY Pelister
Experience the best natural and cultural features of Macedonia through an unforgettable adventure.
The Tour offers Novice, Intermediate and Advanced options, suitable for all skill levels.
The Novice track is selected for people who can ride a bike but have little to no experience in downhill mountain biking. We follow a picturesque route, through the ancient pine forests of National Park, Mt. Pelister. The track is a combination of some free riding (downhill) and the rest is completely cross country. Riding through and Via Egnatia, following the same path as the Macedonian Phalanx and Roman Legions, where we finally arrive to Heraclea Lychnis which is the birthplace of the town of Bitola, founded by Phillip II of Macedon, Alexander the Great’s father.
The intermediate & advanced track on Mt. Pelister starts early in the morning. After breakfast we pick you up and drive to the drop off mount on Mt Pelister. From there is a 4 hour trek to the mountain peak and glacial lake “Golemo Ezero” or “Large Lake”, at an elevation of over 2000m. We rest, have lunch and prepare for the exhilarating downhill mountain biking journey. The track is rocky, with some small drops and narrow points, how fast we go will be dictated by your experience and adrenaline level. Be sure you will treasure the memory of this mountain biking experience on Mt. Pelister, beautiful nature and stunning mountain views.
