Detailed itinerary

What you'll see and do

This is a customisable trip

Use the following itinerary for inspiration. Remember: all days, hotels and activities can be altered to suit your requirements. A 3e Travel travel specialist will be happy to advise.

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.

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.

WOOOOW Just finished 6 magical cycling days in Montenegro. The riding was as a self guided tour- grand tour Montenegro. 3etravel organized everything. Starting from sending the route as a gpx file, reserved hotels, transferring my luggage from hotel to hotel, emergency phone, bicycle and a side bag, and 2 transportation. The tour was amazing!!! Avoiding the main roads, using beautiful side roads which leads to the most beautiful points in Montenegro. Thank you for your professionalism and concern.

We had an outstanding experience. While planning the trip, communications with the owner, Borislav, were timely and effective whether by email, Skype or WhatsApp. Borislav was accommodating in customising the trip to my specific requests. He coordinated airport transfers to/from Dubrovnik to Montenegro and arranged COVID testing so we would re-enter Croatia on the return. Our driver was outstanding in all regards: friendly, bend-over-backwards helpful and safe. Of the accommodations, 5 of the 7 were very good-to-excellent. I provided feedback on all of them. I plan on additional Balkan travel and, when I do, I will return to 3e Travel.

I wanted to organise a trip for 40 friends to Montenegro to celebrate my partner's 50th birthday. 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 our guides and drivers were excellent, the accommodation in each part of the country was local and authentic as requested, and most importantly we got exactly the amazing set of experiences that we were looking for: skiing and show-shoeing, long hikes, stunning views, historical tours, private tours and tastings at vineyards, bee-farms, olive farms and herb farms, boat-rides, oyster tasting, and many excellent meals and wine-tastings. 40 people left Montenegro as ambassadors of the country, and we all hope to return again. If anyone is planning a trip to Montenegro or any of the neighbouring countries, I will always recommend the 3e team.
