Balkan peninsula was frozen in time for the duration of the war, while neighbouring countries were developing at supersonic speed… the countries didn’t evolve like they should have or could have at the turn of the millennium. There’s an upside to this, of course. The Balkans remains very much unspoiled.

We are ready to provide you with a transfer from the airports of Tivat (25 km) or Podgorica (65 km).After the receiving the motorbikes you will sign the documents.

Day 2: We will start our journey from Budva and drive past the island-hotel Sv. Stefan along the old serpentine road to the former market town of Virpazar. Our trip will go through the amazing Lake Skadar National Park and reach the border with Albania.Later we are going to visit the fortress in Shkoder and drive to the ancient capital of Albania, Kruje. We will go for the stroll through the old stone streets and find the authentic castle and stay overnight in Kruje.  
210 km
 
Day 3: From Kruje we drive to the coast of Albania. We will take the high-speed road to avoid the traffic in the capital Tirana in order to reach the Albanian Riviera, probably the most gorgeous part of the Ionian Sea coast. 
We will see the Albanian coast from the highest point of Llogaraje passage. Thereafter we will drive down the mountain serpentine through the ravine and move along the coast with stunning views of the endless sea. 
Afterwards we will come the castle of Ali Pasha and in the evening we are reaching the Albanian Maldives to the town of Ksamil, famous for its incredible beaches.
300 km
 
4 Day: We are going to visit Butrint national park and museum-reserve before leaving the sea. Next, we will go to Gjirokaster, a museum town. The town is located on a hill and the top of it is one of the largest and oldest castles in Albania. In order to get to Gjirokaster we will drive along the border with Greece by one of the highest points of our trip - Barmashi pass. We will spend the night in the town of Pogradec on the shore of Lake Ohrid.
278 km
 
Day 5: The rest day. This day we will relax and enjoy the quiet shores of Lake Ohrid. We will have lunch with fresh fish on the shore and enjoy a short walk on the surface of the lake. We need to recharge our strength because of the dizzying serpentines and mountains which are waiting for us.
 
Day 6: We continue our exploration of mountainous Albania through the roads of several national parks and nature reserves. We will encounter less and less other traffic, but more mountain peaks and tops. We follow the border with Northern Macedonia to Kukes, a town on the shore of a reservoir on the Drina River where we stay overnight.
220 km
 
Day 7: And again mountains and national parks - that's what we came to Albania for, right? Unexplored roads, steep serpentine roads, the feeling of unity with nature. Incredible landscapes which are still rare to visit on a motorcycle. The roads are actively building up so there is no need to be afraid of too difficult sections. In the evening we are reaching a favorite destination for all motorcyclists - Theth National Park.
225 km
 
8 Day: This day Montenegro welcomes us with a beautiful serpentine road through Lepushe. We will visit the National Park Prokletje, admiring the Grebaje Valley and moving through the canyons of Moraca river we will arrive to the capital of Montenegro for the rest.
 
Day 9: We will drive on the panoramic road around Korita, once again enjoying the picturesque serpentine in Albania, but from Montenegro side now, standing on the other side of the canyon.  Then we will travel north through Ubli to the mountainous town of Kolasin. We will visit the canyon of the Tara River, the famous Đurđevića Tara Bridge and spend the night in the surroundings of relict pine trees in Zabljak.
 
Day 10: The rest day. We are going to have a little break from the perpetually winding roads, heights and mountains. We will take a stroll around the Black Lake, take the chairlift and get acquainted with the Durmitor National Park.
 
11 Day: Durmitor is one of the most stunning places in the Balkans, appreciated by major ofpeople. We will pay a lot of attention to it and it will delight us with a changing of landscapes and sensations every half an hour, as if we are travelling from one planet to another.Fabulous landscapes of Nedaino canyon, magical fields of Trsa and Crkvičko polje, Prutas mountain and Sedlo pass, Mratinje, the highest dam in Europe and incredible beauty of Piva lake, mountains paved with tunnels like a Swiss cheese. Full of impressions we will head towards the sea, but then we will make a stop in Grahovo valley to gain strength.
 
12 Day: This is our final day which is starting with views of Boka-Kotors bay, we are goingdown to the place of Risan and in Perast, town of mariners, we will stop to admire the natural island of Sv George and the man-made Our Lady of the Rocks. 
Then we are coming to the fortified town of Kotor, where we will walk through the alleys built by Venetian architects. Ahead of us is serpentine Kotor and national park Lovcen. In the village of Negushi we will buy authentic Montenegrin prosciutto and in the historic capital Cetinje we will drink coffee in the cool of the trees. We finish the day with a ride to Rijeka Crnojevica and take the old Austrian road back to Budva.

We use secondary roads in 80% of time. Sometimes we ride
highways when there are no other alternatives.

Most of our tours are asphalted and don't require any off-road riding
skills. Sometimes we use unpaved roads, but usually these are short
10-20 km. sections.

For those who are interested in off-road adventures we know good
guys in Montenegro who can make off-road tour.

As most of the expenses are included every day in most tours
(breakfasts, toll roads, excursion, etc.) you
need small money for lunch, vine, beer, snacks, some personal expenses.
On average 30-50 Euro will be more than enough.

In tours we stay in 3-4* hotels that were carefully selected to show
you regions specifics.

Yes, we have two options for the bike insurance. When you get bike,
you either pay a 1000-2200 Euro deposit and that is max amount
you can lose (if the bike's damages cost less than your deposit we
will pay you the difference back). Or you can buy VIP-insurance with no deposit at all.

Riding season is open from middle April till October, but we ride all
year if weather is good.

Because all our tours are round you can leave your bags in the hotel
or in our office.

Yes, something we have (helmets, gloves, jackets, pants) but it's better to bring your own if you have it.

In most cases its usual riding gear – pants and jacket, helmet and
motorcycle boots, gloves, clothes with the wind stopper material.
Based on the tour that you are going to ride we can advise to take
some specific things with you.
