Eastern Europe, Croatia & the Balkans
This epic cross-European adventure offers an intriguing combination of Central Europe's castles and romantic squares with the Balkans' own historic towns and wondrous landscapes.

With 29 days devoted to this journey, this is your chance to discover what still feels like a well-kept secret.
In the heart of the Balkans, the newly independent nation of Montenegro has a wealth of historic treasures and stunning Adriatic coastline to explore. Journeying to this intriguing country, the cycle begins near Dubrovnik from the small coastal town of Cavtat in the region of Konavle, filled with Renaissance architecture and authentic charm. Discover the Bay of Kotor and the town of Herceg Novi, situated terrace-like above the bay. From the border with Croatia to the capital and beyond, the cycle route explores quiet mountain and coastal roads to reach sandy beaches, the birdlife rich Skutari Lake and historic pirate hideouts. Plenty of time is set aside to explore the interesting towns of Budva, Kotor and Cetinje en route, and to take a swim in the sea or relax at the many viewpoints along the way.
