We invite you to an active retreat full of adventure and relaxation in nature, as you will be part of a 5 to 7 days experience including a combination of Yoga, rock climbing, hiking, and much more – all in the company of old friends or friends to become. These retreats are especially created for intimate groups between 8 to 14 people, who are in for another kind of vacation than the usual ‘all-inclusive-lying-on-the-beach-and-doing-nothing’ trip. This offer is all-inclusive on a different level, as we are a small family business and convey a homey atmosphere, where you can feel the love and effort put into our retreats; the place, the activities and the homemade food. We will take you on an active journey in the Mavrovo National Park and other locations in North Macedonia, starting from and ending at the Skopje airport. All you have to do is book your suiting dates for a retreat, buy yourself a flight ticket to Skopje, swing your butt on that plane and have a great time until you will fly home again – relaxed, adrenalized and satisfied!

In our menu we mostly use local produce and even produce from our own small garden. As North Macedonia offers a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, the food is tasteful and nutritious. People from Western countries can really taste and appreciate the difference. Moreover, in our region the shepherds are roaming the mountains with their flocks of sheep, where they also produce sheep and goat cheese and “sour milk” in a traditional and handmade way. If you want to follow a lacto-vegetarian or plant-based diet, we adjust the traditional Macedonian dishes to your preferences. Otherwise, we also offer menus including meat and other animal products. Additionally, the herbal teas we serve are fully based on herbs, flowers, berries and plants we foraged from the National Park, i.e. they are very potent, remedial and surely without any pesticides. Our breads are usually self-baked and we generally emphasize homemade and natural foods.
