Albania vs Montenegro: amazing off-road motorcycle tour in Balkans
Intense adventure motorcycle tour that takes you on top of the most beautiful mountains in the Balkans. Albania and Montenegro will show you the best of what untouched nature has to offer.
In total of 12 days (10 adventure riding days), we will push our own limits many times; as well as our bike’s. Mix of demanding gravel, dirt, forest paths, technical switchbacks and rocky ascents/descents will be served to us daily; with occasional asphalt excursions that will bring us back ‘off the track’, or as we say ‘Off The Radar’. Approximately 60% of the riding time will be on tough off-road sections, connected by paved backroads where off-road will no longer be possible. Certain riding days could end up very long due to unpredictable terrain, possible flat tire situation(s) etc. So be ready for a real adventure here.
This guided off-road motorcycle tour starts/ends in the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia (Airport: DBV). Dubrovnik is easily reachable, less then an hour away from Montenegrin border and ideal if arriving with a travel partner who doesn’t ride. Area is rich of history and culture, beautiful cycling/running paths and scenic beaches; so surely there will be enough options.
Difficulty / required riding skills: Albania vs Montenegro tour is suitable only for experienced off-road riders*. As we ride big BMW adventure motorcycles (F700GS – F800GS – R1200GS), handling the bikes in tight hairpins on loose ground, dirt and rugged mountains etc. will be our daily routine. If you did some of BMW Motorrad off-road trainings (or any other adventure training on 800+cc bike), this tour is suitable for ’Experts’ e.g. riders with highest level of off-road skills.
For competitive adventure riders or clubs, there is an option to participate in one of region’s biggest Enduro events during the tour. More information available on request.
