Arrive and settle in. Meet the team over an evening meal.

Wake early to breakfast. Warm up and head out on the longest run you'll undertake (approx. 4hrs). Back at base we refuel with lunch and spend the afternoon relaxing or exploring. The team and guests reconvene over dinner.

After breakfast and a warm up we head out on an easier run (approx 3hrs). After lunch an optional yoga class will be available
(1 hour), or just unwind ahead of the evening meal.

A quick stretch and easy morning run (1hr) will set you up for your journey - or treat yourself to a extra hour or two in bed. The team and guests share breakfast before heading off.

Situated just outside the main town of Ohrid in a small village, the accommodation is carefully chosen to provide a comfortable and sociable space.

With trail heads on the doorstep, and only 1km to the lake edge, this place provides an ideal base for a weekend of exploring. Meals will be nutritious and plentiful.

Within easy reach of some of Macedonia's cultural gems, why not extend your adventure and dip your toe in further to the country's rich history.

Please note that while ideal in lots of ways there is only one shared bathroom, no frills lodging keeps us out of town and right on the trail heads.

Fly: Directly to Lake Ohrid, or into Tirana, Albania, or Skopje, with a selection of international and budget airlines. A host of car rental companies are available at good value prices.

Drive: Ohrid Airport, Macedonia - Accommodation (25mins) Tirana, Albania - Accommodation (2hrs) Skopje, Macedonia - Accommodation (3hrs)

We recommend car sharing where possible and can put you in touch with fellow guests on request.
