Welcome to the countryside
Transfer to village Omorane. Take a walk in the village, meet local people to get introduced in their slow countryside life. You will see how they still thread the tobacco leaves manually and how they extract honey the old fashioned way. On your way back you can buy some fresh eggs right from the roost and goat cheese from a small goat farm nearby. Overnight in a guesthouse in Omorane.


Hike to the springs of River Babuna
Start early with transfer to village Nezhilovo (25km / 40min drive). Your hike starts from the fishpond, on a narrow dirt road that winds up into dense beech forest. Once you exit the road on a narrow forest trail you will hear the roaming of River Babuna, with a lovely surprise: there is a small picturesque waterfall few hundred meters before the springs. Refresh yourself, fill all your bottles with water and get ready for a walk down back to the fishpond at Nezhilovo. Overnight in the same house in Omorane.


Hike to St Nikola monastery
The hike today is easy – it will take you 1,5h to get up to the monastery, a quiet place where you can “charge your spiritual batteries”. Once you get on the hill, a beautiful panorama opens-up of a part of this region known as Azot and the peaks of Mt Jakupica in the back. The afternoon is free to enjoy the small pool in the backyard of the village house, or learn from your hosts how to live with nature and make easily your natural spices, medicines, or even cosmetics. Late afternoon transfer back to Skopje.

Authentic village house in village Omorane with en-suite facilities.
