This is a mountain ride, which is taking you to the endless pastures of the Bistra Mountain to the traditional sheep farm RUSIN. On this ride you will have the opportunity to face the highest pick of Medenica ( 2136 m ) with an incredible view of the most picturesque side of Stogovo massive (2,218 m ). Riding through the endless fields and rocky trails, you will experience something new and different in your life.

By visiting the old sheep farm of RUSIN, you will get closer to the Shepherd’s life and you will have the possibility to get familiar with the Shepherds’ daily routines that include the process of making white cheese and yogurt in a traditional, GALICHNIK way. Coming back at the SHERPA RANCH, you will have picnic lunch, during which everyone tastes the fresh Galichnik cheese dirеctly from the Rusin farm with some homemade pie, fresh vegetables and a shot of rakija. Cheers!!!
