From the salty surf to the sweet meadows of the high plateau – this tour takes you through diverse Montenegrin landscapes, from sunny beaches to the peaks of majestic mountains. Start at the coast with a steep climb, through rocky grey karst, up to the peak of Orjen Sedlo, where you can take you well-earned rest in a quaint mountain cottage. Get your next reward the following day: the stunning lights and meadows in the blue-greenish Lake Piva as well as the surrounding mountain massifs in glittering sparks are well-worth the further efforts. Discover remote villages and uncanny ravines on your way to the Durmitor high-mountain National Park, where rare plants and a diverse fauna await you. The wood grouse, among many others, is a permanent resident here.

The sky above Sinjajevina seems endless above the vast, green high plateau on an average of over 1600 m above sea level. Peaceful alpine pastures, frames by impressive peaks of 2000 m and more provide for pleasurable riding. A 10 km long descent takes you back to the villages, this time to Kolašin. After passing a short distance by escort vehicle, the trail continues through tranquil, dark-green forests – then high up into the Morača and Maganik mountains – another world yet again, home to bears and wolves! Even as late as July, the summits can stay snow-covered. Enjoy the relaxing descent into Danilovgrad on a quiet asphalt road. From there it’s uphill again to the „heart of old Montenegro”, on a historic paved road toward the old royal capital Cetinje. Several side trips can be taken from there: interesting excursions to Njeguši or into the National Park Lovćen.

A thrilling downhill ride takes you from 1400 m to the sea level. 25 serpentines with a spectacular view of the bay and the town of Kotor – an UNESCO World Heritage site – are the unforgettable last leg of this trip. Stroll through the alleyways of the Mediterranean old town and take a last look at the mountains – in the afterglow of an unforgettable tour.
