Montenegro Cruise and Bike

From EUR €1,250

Description

A Boat and Bike cruise is a unusual way to explore and is well suited to this area of Montenegro and Kotor Bay. We cycle during the day, visiting the charming mountains of Montenegro, then we have time to relax swimming and sun bathing, before we explore the restaurants of the small ports and harbours and sleep on board your “floating hotel” at night.

This is a very varies itinerary during which you will experience the beautiful Montenegran coast, historic towns and secluded beaches. The cycling requires no special basic conditions from the participants. The altitudes range between 100 and 300 metres. The daily tours of 16-37 km (2/ 3 hours/ day) lead through hilly, mountainous, plain terrain and can be cycled without any time pressure. The type of terrain can be paved road or earthen road. Bikes are provided, and it is possible to rent an E-bike if required. It is also possible to spend a half or even a full day relaxing on the ship.
