Europe's Best Lake? Where Albania & Macedonia Meet | Skopje To Ohrid Tour



Lake Ohrid is one of Europe’s deepest and oldest lakes, a gem of Albania and North Macedonia we had to see. In this vlog we travel on a Skopje To Ohrid Tour with Skopje Daily Tours to…⬇ More Below ✈ Our 220 page guide on how to travel non-stop —

Lake Ohrid is a name we’ve heard a heck of a lot during our time in Albania and Macedonia / North Macedonia — so during our time in Skopje we couldn’t miss it. We’ve spent the past 2 months exploring both countries and the most common tour we get told about is Lake Ohrid. It’s one of Europes largest and deepest lakes and it’s accessable from both Albania and Macedonia, so both countries recommend it highly.

We took a private tour from Skopje to Lake Ohrid with a company called Skopje Daily Tours, they have trips country wide to all sorts of attractions so we can definitely recommend them —  This was a 7-10 hour tour from Skopje because of the driving distance, dependant on how long you spend in Ohrid and at/around the lake itself.

The lake was surprising in a way that we should have expected – its far more developed than we had imagined. It’s no wonder our new Albania and Macedonia friends were telling us to check it out, for a weekend it would be epic. As a quick taste to share the experience we loved it, a tour from Skopje to Ohrid is a lot easier than a bus or hiring a car as well.

So is it Europes best lake? Honestly, you tell us, we’ve not seen enough of them to know – can only imagine Lake Camo is high on that list purely for it’s class and beauty? But we can say we’ve had at least 20 message from people telling us Lake Ohrid is the greatest of them all, but as with all travel destinations, that’s subjective.

    Had to giggle when the guide said you were American. The number of times we got told we were Australian when we lived in the states for three years 😀Then when we told them we were Scottish, they'd say how amazing our English was 😂Aye Laddie!

    One day ohrid is not enough. We were there 2 weeks ago for 3 nights. I want to go back! Not in the summertime because it is very touristic. Maybe sept next year. I felt in love with ohrid. And indeed there were a lot of dutch people 😉

    Funny what you said about visitors from the Netherlands. Years ago when people were just starting to visit the former Eastern Block countries I was driving around Slovakia and Hungary with some friends and we couldn't believe the amount of NL cars we saw! It became a standing joke. I'm sure there's a car with an NL number plate parked on the moon somewhere.

    I was here last week, it was gorgeous, also the castle doesn't have an entrance fee, the monastery is actually where they say Christianity flourished and where the slavic alphabets were created untill then the language was only oral.
    going back to work now 😞

    I'm pretty much into geography and yet had never heard of this amazing lake! This part of the world is just amazing. So glad you guys have made a point of visiting this part of the world – it clearly has much to offer 🙂

    "You are from USA", nah not quite mate. Another great location.
    Just remember Dane when you do all that hiking you don't have to worry about eating all that European food.

    Shopska Salata (in Serbian Šopska Salata) is also a thing in Serbia. My boyfriend is Serbian and it’s my favourite salad to have when we visit, specifically because of the mountain of shredded white cheese on top 😹
