Beautiful Balkans Adventure
Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro

Following the great success of this tour from our last season, we again ride to Bosnia and Herzegovina and Croatia, adding Montenegro this time as another undiscovered southeast-European delicacy. Exhilarating routes will be taken to all the special areas these three countries have to offer. The route is all on good asphalt starting on wide gentle roads throughout Bosnia's inland and finishing with superb coastal riding up the azure Adriatic coast in Croatia.

Both Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina are surely two of the last undiscovered tourist destinations in Europe. Witnessing the transition and rediscovering a region of forgotten beauty, culture and history will reward and surprise even the most jaded traveler. Make sure you come for a visit before these natural beauties get overrun by tourists!
