Arrive at Dubrovnik

The jewel in Croatia’s crown, Dubrovnik might just be one of the most picturesque cities in the world. Explore the city’s ancient city walls and historic building, head up the hills to Mount Srd and dip your toes in the Adriatic Sea.

Croatia to Montenegro

You start your cycling tour right from the doorstep of your hotel. Cycle through villages in the romantic Konvale valley then follow the road above the coast to reach the border. Right after crossing into Montenegro, you enter Herceg Novi, the gateway to the Bay of Kotor.

Included meals: Breakfast

Highlights of the Bay of Kotor

Cycle to the highlights of the Bay of Kotor. Along the very shoreline you cycle to Risan and Perast, the pearl of the bay. Take your time to explore the picturesque historical town. Continue to old town of Kotor where you meet your shuttle to Stari Bar.

Included meals: Breakfast

Cross into Albania

Cycle through groves of 2000 years old olive trees and follow the road above the Adriatic you ride around Bar, the "oil capital" of Montenegro. Enjoy beautiful views riding through a vast valley until you meet the road Ulcinj – Shkodra, which you will follow until Shkodra in Albania.

Included meals: Breakfast

Albanian cycling experience

Today you have two options which give you time to explore the historical centre of Skadar.

Cycle to Drin River and reward yourself with a lunch at one of the best restaurant experiences Albania has to offer, the Slow-food restaurant “Mrizi I Zanave” (“Garden of the Fairy”). En route you pass the mighty dam of the River Drin and experience Albanian village life.

Or, take an easy cycle around the shores of lake Skadar and tour the fish restaurants.

Included meals: Breakfast

Monastery route in Skadar Lake National Park

Transfer back across the border into Montenegro and make the first major ascent. A wonderful, but challenging panoramic tour awaits you today. You follow a narrow road above Skadar Lake to Virpazar. This is where you will be picked up and transferred to Cetinje.

Included meals: Breakfast

Serpentine road to Kotor

Cycle from the mountains to the sea along the famous Austro-Hungarian serpentine road, with the most beautiful panoramic views in the Bay of Kotor. As soon as you have conquered the initial ascent, you roll downhill for more than 30 km directly in front of the Old Town of Kotor.

Included meals: Breakfast

Departure day

After breakfast, take an optional transfer to airport Dubrovnik or we can recommend a trip extension.

The absolutely incredible scenery and the very friendly and welcoming people of Montenegro and Albania. One of my favourite holidays ever. Everyone was so accommodating on our trip. The hotels we stayed in were very friendly and did their best to make sure we had a comfortable stay.

One of the best tours, it had everything. Stunning hikes during the day and then we could relax back at the hotel
and on the beaches, swimming and snorkeling. The whole team at 3e travel were amazing and they do all the
hard work for you (besides the hiking, but that makes the view so much more special). I can't recommend
3E enough, and we'll definitely use them again to explore the surrounding areas next time we get to
go back.

I am a regular cycle visitor to the Adriatic coast but had little knowledge of Montenegro. I found 3e on the internet and was glad I did. I told them our dates, number or riders and ability and they did the rest. They came up with an excellent itinerary, sorted accommodation and bikes and supported us on the ride. Without their local knowledge we could not have discovered the fantastic rides and places without 3e. Angelika was just fantastic. Hope to get back for some trail rides soon.

I cannot praise Angelika and the team at 3e highly enough. I wanted to organise a trip for 40 friends to Montenegro to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday. a friend recommended 3e. I contacted Angelika and explained our rather complicated requirements - with a combination of long hikes and adventure sports for some, relaxation for others, lots of culture and history, authentic experiences, good food and wine, hip locations and boutique accommodation, and all of it for not too high a budget! much to my amazement, she came back to me within 24 hours with a proposed itinerary which exactly matched our requirements - she immediately understood the style that our group was looking for, and after that we only made minor changes to the basic itinerary. From then on, everything about the organisation could not have been smoother - the communication back and forth was fast, the 3e team successfully greeted our guests arriving at 3 different airports on multiple different days, all of o...
