Tour Details

This guided biking vacation starts in Cavtat and explores the north Montenegro countryside. On this cycling holiday, we will discover some particularly picturesque towns as well as the fantastic coast of Montenegro. The departure point of this bike tour is Cavtat in Croatia, which is near Dubrovnik – one of the most beautiful cities in the Adriatic and a World Heritage site. Because of its historical importance, it is often called the “Athens of Croatia”.

Montenegro, one of the youngest states in the world and is our main destination. Together with our bike guides, you discover the bay of Kotor whose steep limestone cliffs make it one of the most impressive landscapes in the entire Adriatic.

In the afternoon we have enough time to explore the picturesque old town of Budva but you are welcome to cycle a bit further in order to visit the famous hotel island of Sveti Stefan.
