“Our visit in Shar Mountain was an unforgettable experience. The mountains are amazing with breathtaking views and with great diversity of flora and fauna. But all this we wouldn't discover on our own..

    "I climbed a number of times with Mountain Experience this summer. Firstly their in-depth knowledge of the routes and terrain is second to none. Secondly, they take safety very seriously and have a highly professional approach to this part of the work, much due to the impressive experience of their lead guide, Kostantin. Third, I was always learning with them. And finally, I had a great time spending my days with like-minded people who love to be in the mountains! Highly recommended!"

    Our group of 10 mountain bikers just returned from an extraordinary experience. From the moment we were greeted at the airport and through the entire week of climbing and descending the Macedonian mountainside. We received the utmost care for every detail imaginable, nothing was overlooked. We, as a group, highly recommend this professional team for an unforgettable mountain bike experience.

  • Marta and Paulina Poland

    Our visit in Shar Mountain was an unforgettable experience. All of that we wouldn't discover on our own without our guides from “Mountain Experience”. They organized the trip for us, chose the best roots and showed us many nice places and things. They were our guides and guards in the same time :)

  • Fraser England

    "This winter I kept coming back to Mountain Experience for more and more ski touring. These guys know where to find all the best skiing, even in places most of the locals don't even know about. I can't recommend Mountain Experience enough; these guys have seen something beautiful in their country and want to show it to you!"

    EARTH PORN... We went for a 15 km snowshoe trek in one of the most unique and remote nature spots in the Balkans, The Leshnica Valley. On top of its amazing location everything was covered in a fresh pillow of powder snow.
