Arrive at Podgorica

The tour starts at the railway station of Podgorica, there we meet you for instructions and bike fitting. Depending on your arrival time, you take the next train to Mojkovac. This section of the railway is one of the most beautiful mountain railways in Europe and a unique travel experience not to miss.

Cycling along the Tara River and transfer to Duritmor National Park

Found on the northern edge Durmitor National Park, the Tara Canyon cuts deep into the landscape, with its deepest point being only 200m less than the Grand Canyon.

The Tara River flows through the base of the canyon and you can explore the waters by rafting or kayaking. Cycle along the river or admire the views from the top of Mount Curevac. The impressive bridge across the valley is also worth visiting.

Included meals: Breakfast

Cycling in the peaks of Montenegro in Duritmor National Park

Home to more than 50 peaks, mountain rivers and underground streams, the dramatic Durmitor National Park is Montenegro’s adventure playground.

In winter, the mountains offer ample skiing opportunities while or head out of season for hiking, kayaking and rafting. The are attracts a lot of visitors meaning hiking trails are well sign-posted and you can make your way to the peak of the countries highest peak, Bobotov Kuk.

The Tara River runs through the park with an impressive bridge that's worth a visit as well as being a popular area for rafting.

Included meals: Breakfast

Cycling to Niksic

The beautiful Lake Piva is framed by high peaks and we cycle through a dramatic landscape characterised by rivers and waterfalls. We make a detour to the Orthodox monastery Piva, where time has stood still since the 16th century. The ultimate goal is Montenegro's second largest city, Niksic.

Included meals: Breakfast

Cycling to the Ostrog Monastery

On winding roads, we climb up to the well-known and dramatically Ostrog monastery, which lies as wedged in the rock wall. A final pleasant downhill takes you towards the capital Podgorica. There you meet your transfer shuttle which takes you to National Park Lake Skadar.

Included meals: Breakfast

Cycling in Lake Skadar National Park, Cetinje and the Bay of Kotor

Today's cycling is split into two sections. On a beautiful side road you cycle through the villages of National park Lake Skadar the biggest lake of the Balkans to the village of Rijeka Crnojevica. Here you meet your transfer which takes you, via Cetinje, to Lovcen National Park. Conclude this day with the epic downhill on the serpentine road to the Bay of Kotor.

Included meals: Breakfast

Highlights of the Bay of Kotor

Montenegro is a country full of beautiful views, but the Bay of Kotor’s waterfront might just be the best.

Spend a couple of days meandering through its towns, from the restored palaces of Perast to Kotor’s Venetian old town with sites including the three city gates, town square and clock tower, but the highlight is the Cathedral of Saint Tryphon. Nowhere combines ancient history and stunning scenery better.

An UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Bay of Kotor's winding coastline offers ample opportunities for hikers and bikers, with quiet roads generally devoid of traffic. Head up to the observation deck at Tivat for panoramic views of the bay and hike the 1300 steps to the Kotor Fortress.

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...
