Tour description

When we say Ultimate, we mean it. This tour goes above and beyond our '25 Turns' tour in terms of views and excitement. This 95% downhill bike ride features panoramic views of Montenegro, Bosnia and Croatia. The tour takes around 4 hours depending on the rate of descent and number of photos stops made. It's an appropriate for for cruise ship passengers who are in port for at least 8 hours.  Lovćen’s star attraction, this magnificent mausoleum, built between 1970 to 1974, sits at the top of its second-highest peak, Jezerski Vrh (1657m). You can walk the 461 steps (optional) to the entry where two granite giantesses guard the tomb of Montenegro’s greatest hero. Inside under a golden mosaic canopy, a 28-ton Petar II Petrović Njegoš rests in the wings of an eagle, carved from a single block of black granite. Your guides will give you a safety briefing before you begin the bike descent to Kotor.
