Mountain bike through rugged valleys and historic settlements along the turquoise sea of the Dalmatian coastline while imagining the glory of past civilizations that have left their marks on these emerging nations.

Forget those war-torn years; today's Bosnia and Herzegovina has returned to peace and is now inviting you to explore and witness its hidden treasures. With its breath-taking natural and cultural wealth, the country has started to emerge as one of the most popular destinations in the world. Croatia's Dalmatian seafront is second to none and attracts sun-seekers from around the globe to enjoy its warm weather, balmy skies, and turquoise water.

Similarly, Montenegro's azure coast is lined with many stunning destinations: the heavenly Bay of Kotor, the vibrant and contemporary Budva Riviera, and quaint and serene Virpazar. Castles, fortress walls, and relaxing fishing villages tucked between orchards and the sea make for a very picturesque cycling expedition.

Note that this trip's total ascent is 6,467 m (21,217 ft).
