Vodno to canyon Matka

The hidden gem in the capital of Macedonia, Skopje, is a beautiful sight that most definitely adds to the city.

This trail goes from the peak of Vodno to a beautiful canyon by the name of “Matka.” The hiking trail gives a view that leads to a presence of the city, but most importantly, a presence of the nature around it.

There are so many historical and majestic monuments within it, and every second of the trail is a new-found moment. The canyon itself has a refreshing and sparkling glance that shines around the mountain and adds an interesting touch to the tour. However, the difficulty of the tour can be adjusted according to the possibilities of the clients by using the gondola lift to the peak of Vodno for an easy start. This is included in the offer.

 Vodno to Canyon Matka gives off a different energy than the city. It shows more of what needs to be explored and seen and what you could be enjoying. It’s very close to the city, and an easy, relaxing hike shows the hidden beauty of the city.
