Biking in Montenegro

Biking in Montenegro was another great adventure: Hilly bicycle tracks in the open air of the beautiful country of Montenegro. Our instructor used to say that

“Montenegro is not like Switzerland: It is not a chocolate country.”

Montenegro has been referred to as the “Jewel of the Mediterranean” and with good reason.

It has become one of the most popular destinations in Europe showcasing highly diverse and stunning natural landscape. This country is known for its compact size, which allows tourists to conveniently experience its various appeals that include glacial lakes, mountains, rivers, beaches and natural parks.

Because of its location and small size, along with its close proximity to Adriatic destinations, biking in Montenegro has become increasingly popular among cyclists. Organized bicycle tours in Montenegro often pass by neighboring countries that will allow you to explore various landscapes and breathtaking sites of the region. Indeed, nothing beats enjoying your favorite sport amid such dramatic landscape.

Tips for Bicycling Tours In Montenegro

To look forward to enjoying your cycling in Montenegro adventure, here are some helpful tips:

Ride Your Own Ride

If you truly want to enjoy biking in Montenegro, plan out your tour. Unless you are a beginner, it is generally recommended that you follow your own pace and preferred route, instead of ending up chasing other people's biking tour dreams. When planning your cycling in Montenegro, consider your personal preferences and find the right personal rhythm.

Choose The Right Season

Conduct your own research on cycling adventures in and around Montenegro. This will provide you with a fairly good idea on the cost of traveling.

Take into account the fact that you will be riding with the person 24/7. Be sure to set expectations and choose friendships that can easily withstand the strain that comes with cycling tours.

Invest in Quality Gears And Replacements

While this may seem logical, you will be surprised as to how many cyclists decide to skimp on the essentials. Be sure to invest in a quality bike and bring along some replacement parts since it can b e difficult to find time during your tour.

With the right preparation and gears, you can look forward to enjoying a great adventure biking in Montenergo.
