A current bicycle trail through Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina will soon expand to encompass a total of eight western Balkan countries to create a trail of nearly 1,200 miles.

 

The Trans Dinarica route currently crosses the Dinaric Alps and, once expanded, will eventually continue along the Via Dinarica hiking trail and the Shar Mountains. The newly extended route will add the following Balkan countries to the itinerary: Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo, Serbia and Macedonia.

 

The scenic route is not necessarily for novice cyclists as the path features gravel tracks and several uphill climbs, but it will pass through stunning scenery along the Adriatic Sea, including UNESCO World Heritage sites, quaint mountain villages and even national parks.

 

To get the most out of the trail, cyclists are encouraged to ride approximately 30 to 40 miles per day, which sets them on track to make it through each country in about seven to 10 days.

 

Conceptualized by a group of friends from Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina who all work in outdoor adventure, Trans Dinarica takes cycling trips up a notch by offering luggage transfers, guided tours at certain stops and group cycling stages.
