Wildlife holidays in Macedonia
Tell me about Macedonia …
The most southerly of the six republics that were previously part of Yugoslavia, the Republic of Macedonia declared its independence in 1991. A landlocked country in the heart of the Balkans, Macedonia has a rich history, having been in turns occupied and ruled by Alexander the Great, Romans, Greeks, Ottomans and Slavs, to name a few!
A central valley runs through the middle of Macedonia, formed by the Vardar River; to either side lie mountains. Macedonia has three national parks and a relatively rich fauna and flora for a country that is smaller than Belgium.
Our Macedonia Specialist recommends...
"Our ‘Butterflies of Macedonia’ holiday offers an exciting opportunity for Lepidoptera enthusiasts to explore what must be one of the least-known, least-visited countries in Europe. It’s home to over 200 species of butterfly, and on our week-long trip you could expect to see almost half of these."
