Through the heart of Montenegro

Today's tour takes you to the biggest lake of the Balkan peninsula, Lake Skadar. You follow the old road that connects Cetinje with Rijeka Crnojevića.

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 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...
