The tour combines hilly and always green Slovenia with multicultural Bosnia and mountainous Montenegro. On the way back you ride along the scenic Adriatic coastline and visit a couple of beautiful islands.
If you have a few extra days to spare, we definitely suggest you spend them in the Italian Dolomites. Reserve 2 or 3 days for that.
To save two days, we will turn the tour around a little bit and skip two nights in Slovenia, probably one in Jeruzalem and one of the rest days in Bovec.
You can save one more day if you stay for only one night in Zabljak in Montenegro, although we highly recommend a rest day there.
