Plot Your Own Path
Traveling privately on a custom itinerary means flexibility – flexibility to immerse yourself in your own exclusive experience, to craft an itinerary around your interests, and to travel when it’s right for you.
Want to hike around a national park, exploring waterfalls, glacial lakes, alpine meadows, and plunging canyons? How about venturing into cobbled backstreets to visit a paper maker and see how paper is made and then printed on a Gutenberg press? Need suggestions?
To get started planning a North Macedonia itinerary, take a look at our suggested Private Journeys to the region – Essential Balkans and Essential Albania, North Macedonia & Kosovo – or read more about how to design your own trip.

- Board a small private boat for a short ride on glistening, UNESCO-listed Lake Ohrid, one of Europe’s oldest and largest lakes dotted with hamlets, harbors, monasteries, and beaches.
- Celebrate with locals in a traditional North Macedonian restaurant: feasting, singing, and even dancing for hours as the wine flows and scrumptious national dishes are piled on.
- Dive into a discussion with a local expert on current political issues in North Macedonia, such as the decades-old dispute with Greece over its name, or the unprecedented influx of Syrian refugees into the country.
- Set off into the countryside to Tikves, the “Napa Valley” of wine growing and production for 2,400 years, sampling some of the area’s delightful wines over lunch at a local winery.
Whether you’re looking for a compact trip that hits the highlights or something more in depth, MIR offers private itineraries that can be adapted to your choice of dates. Our itinerary, your dates – it’s a great option whether you’re traveling solo, as a couple, or in a small group.
