A great mix of history, culture and nature
Macedonia, the pearl of the Balkans
Macedonia offers a great mix of history, culture and nature. The country has high mountains and clear lakes, many richly decorated churches, monasteries and mosques. Prehistoric excavations, impressive towns with colorful markets and lively bazaars.
During the tour we enjoy traditional dishes from the Macedonian cuisine and drink delicious local wines in cozy restaurants, sometimes accompanied by traditional live music.
What a beautiful country to capture…

Colorful interior of a mosque in Tetovo a town in the north-west of Macedonia.
Our journey starts in the capital Skopje with its rebuilt historical center and lively bazaar. From there we travel via the special painted mosque in Tetovo to the southern town of Ohrid, known for its many cultural and historical sights and not least because of its location on the crystal clear large lake. During a boat trip we travel to the source of the lake and the famous monastery of Sveti Naum, and there will be time for a refreshing swim. We drive through the Galichitsa National Park, rich in fauna and flora (bears and wolves still live there!), to Lake Prespa. We arrive in the pleasant city of Bitola, the former capital, also called ‘City of the Consuls’. Via the tobacco town of Prilep and the Hellenistic excavations in Stobi we travel north, eventually arriving in the picturesque town of Kratovo, from where we return to Skopje.
Different types of photography
We pay attention to landscape photography, street photography, architecture photography and evening photography. Of course technique is discussed, but also composition, the art of observation and translating your travel story into images. You shoot on the basis of assignments, or you get to work freely, because a lot is possible and nothing is necessary. We will regularly discuss and review the photos and so we inspire each other and learn from each other.
Accommodation and transport
We spend the nights in comfortable hotels en route and travel by minibus.
