Cycling west Balkan triangle

Fully guided “Cycling tour of west Balkans triangle” is designed and created for small groups of cyclists wanting to get to know this vibrant geographical and historical part of Europe. Your group is guided by an experienced tour leader – cyclist, who is also a resident of this area, well educated in the past & present circumstances of these parts of the world, and can offer an objective opinion on historical events, as well as current status, economic and political, of the area. The road takes our group through hills and mountains of the Dinarids, through valleys and villages with traditional lifestyles, all the way down to one of the most amazing seashores in Europe. On this tour, you shall pass the borders of three countries: Croatia, Montenegro, and Bosnia and Herzegovina, and visit the major sites on your cycling route. If you are in love with nature, history, geography, in addition to cycling, this is the right tour for you (and your group). You should be ready to cycle about 60 – 85 km per day, there are some up’s and downs, just like in life – but, trust us, you feel very much rewarded when you take a break for water and some photo shooting from the top of the hill – the views are spectacular. The benefit of this guided tour is that your gear and equipment is delivered to your destination for the day in our “support car”, so you can focus solely on the enjoyment of cycling through this wild & beautiful part of the world, and sharing your joy and experience with your group members.
