Boat trip along the coast

Boating on Lake Ohrid is one of the most enjoyable ways to explore the coast, wild beaches and fishing villages. We also visit the “Bay of Bones”. We hold the barbecue on one of the wild beaches of the Macedonian Riviera.

Lake Ohrid is a large and ancient lake in southwestern northern Macedonia and eastern Albania. It is one of the oldest lakes in Europe and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its outstanding universal value and exceptional biodiversity.

Lake Ohrid is located in the Ohrid basin, surrounded by picturesque mountains and lush landscapes. It covers an area of about 358 square kilometres, about two-thirds of which falls within the borders of northern Macedonia.

The lake is known for its crystal-clear waters with excellent visibility. The lake is 288 metres deep, making it one of the deepest lakes in Europe. The water quality is exceptionally high, with a unique ecosystem that has developed over thousands of years.

One of the remarkable features of Lake Ohrid is its rich biodiversity. The lake is home to numerous endemic species found nowhere else on earth. It is especially famous for the Ohrid trout (Salmo letnica), a species that has lived in the lake for thousands of years. The presence of diverse flora and fauna, including more than 200 endemic species, has led to the lake being called the “Museum of Living Fossils”.

Lake Ohrid is not only a natural treasure, but also a cultural and historical site. The region around the lake has a long and rich history, with evidence of human settlements dating back to prehistoric times. The city of Ohrid, located on the eastern shore of the lake, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It has a wealth of historical and cultural attractions, including the Ohrid Fortress, the Church of St John in Kaneo, and numerous Byzantine churches decorated with beautiful frescoes. The lake itself offers several recreational activities.

The lake itself offers several recreational activities for visitors. Boating, fishing and swimming are popular pastimes, allowing people to enjoy the pristine waters of the lake.

In summary, Lake Ohrid is a remarkable natural and cultural treasure in northern Macedonia and Albania. Its clear waters, unique biodiversity and historical significance make it a popular destination for those looking for a mix of natural beauty, cultural heritage and outdoor recreation.
