Matka Canyon is easily visited during a day trip from Skopje, North Macedonia using public transportation. It offers miles of hiking along the deep river formed by damming of the Treska River, as well as trails to three historic monasteries. A restaurant and hotel offer additional amenities, including boat trips to Vrelo Cave, purported to be the deepest underwater cave in the world.

wow! I am amazed that you have found such wonderful sites to visit. You are very good at looking for the oft ignored path ways. And then look what you find! I am so enjoying your travels! (hoping you remember me – I was on the Viking Skadi in June 2015 with my friend Dianne – we are the Canadians.)
Hi Irene! I absolutely remember you. For some reason, your comment was sent to spam and I just discovered it and approved it. I am honored that you’re following my travels. I do tend to look for destinations that are more off-the-beaten-track. I’m just not a fan of large crowds and over-touristed sites. Matka Canyon was a refreshing respite from that. Hope you are well and continue to travel. xoxo
