In this bike tour of Lake Ohrid we will have an amazing time.
We drive by car from Tirana to Qafe Thana where we hop on in our bikes to ride towards Tushemisht where the border that separates two countries is located.
Qafe Thane is a mountain pass near lake Ohrid, and is a primary gateway between two countries.
So, we will pass through the border control to head towards Ohrid, Macedonia.
Ohrid is named after the lake, and it has been many years considered as the Jerusalem of Balkans for the many churches it consists of.
Meanwhile it is a beautiful city with picturesque views, monuments and houses.
Then, we are going to stop and have a lunch break for about 60-80 minutes we soak up the beauty of the lake.
Thereupon, we will bike towards Struga the city located near Ohrid.
Struga is a vivid city of northern Macedonia and that can be seen on the beautiful streets of the city.
Through the town flows the River Drin with crystal clear waters.
Then, we head towards the border control and back to Qafe Thane where we started our journey.
The car that brought us to Qafe Thana is going to take us back to Tirana.
(Optional we can spend the night in the city of Ohrid and explore the city better. And the next day we bike back to Qafethane to go to Tirana)
