A short journey outside of Skopje will bring you to the dramatic scenery of the Matka Canyon, a splendid gorge that's cut through by a crystal clear river. You can enjoy a boat cruise along the water, where the walls of the canyon tower above you, to reach one of the world's deepest underground caves which as found at the end of Matka. Along the route, there are centuries old monasteries to explore and plenty of inspiring views. It's definitely the best day trip from Skopje, in my humble opinion.

If you have more than one day to stay in Skopje, another must-see is Matka canyon. Situated just behind the mountain
Vodno, quite easy to reach by bus or taxi. River Treska, which flows here, was trapped by a dam in the last century,
creating a picturesque lake, which is a point of rest of Skopians and tourist.
There are lots of attractions and things to do.
You can ride a boat, visit the monastery, climb the mountain (beware of vipers!), cayak or simply walk there.
Whatever you choose,
Matka canyon is a thing, you will never forget and a nice option to avoid the noisy city.

A visit to Matka Canyon is one of the most popular ways to spend a day near Skopje. It is a beautiful site and a prime location for hiking, fishing, swimming, and kayaking. One of the most common ways to see Matka Canyon is to rent a boat to explore the lake and the caves of the canyon. Definitely worth the time and minimal expense to visit.
