Starting point of this tour is Nikšić, a traditional place for mountain enthusiasts, surrounded by lakes and forests. The next day begins with a downhill ride to Lake Piva, after crossing the bridge it is an easy 6 km long ascent on a quiet paved road. On an altitude of 1000 m, passing historical villages, you can enjoy the view of the Vojnik Mountains with peaks that are snow-covered far into the summer. Rolling steadily up and down, the trail leads to the small peaceful village Pošćenje, a centre of mountain sports, surrounded by mountain ranges and two small lakes. Before you get there, make sure to take a break at the Nevidio (the unseen) Canyon: take a walk in the refreshing waters of the river at the entrance of this ravine which was discovered some forty decades ago.

From Gabrovica, a demanding ascent of 15 km through forest takes you to a spectacular vantage point at 1907 m, at the foot of the mountain Sedlo. Revel in the fantastic view of the scenery of the Durmitor National Park, take a break to take it all in. On you whiz downhill to Žabljak, the highest town of the region and a centre for winter sports. Follow the mildly winding paved trail, cross the Tara Canyon on the impressive bridge, before another ascent takes you on quiet forest paths and through idyllic pastures to lonely villages.

Past Bijelo Polje (the “white field”) and Lake Šiško, another challenging climb leads you through the green mountain meadows of the Bjelasica Mountains, where you are rewarded by a 360-degree panoramic view of the surrounding mountain ranges. This is the ideal place for an overnight stay. From Kolašin, where the ski lifts patiently await their time, the route follows the Herceg Novi trail to the other side of the Morača River. Later past Pjenavac, a long beautiful downhill ride through the woods awaits you. Though just 30 to 40 km from Montenegro’s largest cities, wolves and bears roam in the wild. A thrilling thought before you leave the wilderness and return to Nikšić.
