National Park Pelister, Bitola

4.7
Known for its two glacial lakes called Pelister's Eyes, National Park Pelister offers many opportunities for hiking, skiing, wildlife viewing and birdwatching. The alpine landscapes of pine forests, sparkling springs, and apple orchards shelter wildlife like bears, wolves, deer, wild boars, rabbits, and eagles. Take one of the historical hiking trails dating from World War I, and walk over reconstructed bridges and along trenches with cannon positions. On the edge of the park is an "eco" village that preserves traditional way of life and an intimate relationship with nature. Locals recommend hiking with a mountain guide if unfamiliar with the area.

  • Lovely any time of the year. Definitely more interesting in a group visit.
  • Home of the endemic pine called Molika, Pelister National Park is a place that you will fell in love at first sight. Nature that takes your breath away, a lot of landscape trails, a lot of springs with fresh mountain water, berries, mushrooms, birds and mammals, many things to see and experience.
