Description:

The peak Vodno with its 1066 meters above sea level it stands very high as it is so close to the square of Skopje City. It is the most popular destination for people from Skopje to enjoy a weekend on fresh air. The mountain is so close, that we will start with the hike from our hotel and make our way through the streets of Skopje while we start our ascent to the peak. We take a narrow mountain trail going up to reach the “Middle of Vodno” where from we have the option to take a cable car to the peak or continue for some more hiking to the top.

At the top we enjoy the view on all sides. We rest and have a cup of mountain tea. Then we continue along wide dirt road and narrow mountain trails along the mountain reef to get to Matka Canyon. There we follow a steep descent along a rocky path with many loose stones that gets us directly in the Canyon. We have a late lunch in a restaurant in the Canyon, in order to regain strength and reflect on the experience. Then we take a shuttle back to the Skopje.
