Our tour starts in Cetinje, the old royal capital of Montenegro and takes us on to the shores of beautiful Lake Skadar. From here we head to the coast and explore the cobbled alleys and walled fortresses of the old towns of Ulcinj, Bar and Budva. Back to the inland mountains for a cycle through Lovcen National Park with fantastic views down to the delightful Bay of Kotor. We finish with a thorough exploration of the iconic Bay of Kotor, visiting the old town of Kotor, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and taking a boat trip to the church island, Our Lady of the Rocks. Following old military trails, we discover castles, fortress walls, and quaint fishing villages, tucked between orchards and the sea making for a very picturesque cycling expedition. Vast inland mountains with majestic grandeur give unrivaled panoramic views into a largely uninhabited interior and across dramatic wild forests.
