National Parks Mountain E-cycle
This is a 6-day self-guided e-cycling adventure on Montenegro’s most beautiful mountains.
The adventure will take you to several national parks featuring breath-taking peaks, mountains plateaus and pastures, forests and lakes. You will travel along hidden away and unfrequented roads through incredible nature that very few have experienced cycling!
You will set off by passing through the incredible Mountain Range Komovi, going along several 2000+ meter peaks. You will journey to Bjelasica Mountain and descend to Biogradska Gora National Park. The national park is home to one of Europe’s oldest forests and a glacial lake that will leave you in awe.
Furthermore, you will ascend Sinjajevina Mountain and cycle over Europe’s largest pasture. We will also take you through the heart of Durmitor National Park, with its countless towering mountain peaks, all the way to Piva Nature Park and its magical mountain plateau, enormous lake and abyssal river canyons.
As it’s a self-guided tour, you are responsible for getting between point A and B each day. We will take care of all of the logistics for you. We provide you GPS tracks of the route, carry your luggage and arrange your accommodation and food, and offer 24 h support along the journey.
Do not miss an opportunity to cycle through breathing nature where cycling tourism is still unknown!
