National Park Nature / Park
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. Using our world travel planner, Bitola attractions like National Park Pelister can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Peacefull place, ideal to relax and get away from all the noise and traffic in the city, excellent for hiking and recreation.
  • Perfect mountain in Macedonia for hiking & biking in summer and ski touring in winter. Wonderfull and endemic nature, especially in the "molika" endemic pine forest
  • Ideal for outdoor activities and hiking, relax. Deep characteristic forest just for this park, unique in Macedonia.
  • Nature and silence go very well together and this is the place where that happens.
  • Pure nature. Untouched.
