The Bosnian and Serbian mountains, such as Bjelašnica and Igman in Bosnia or the Serbian plateau of Zlatibor, offer challenging rides on tarmac roads, excellent cuisine, historic villages and traditional lifestyles. There are many lively towns to include in your discovery of cycling. Start in Zagreb and end in Sarajevo. The small country of Montenegro is an undiscovered gem for the most demanding cyclists. Great climbs, huge ascents, beautiful nature. Macedonia beckons with beautiful lakes like lake Prespansko or Ohrid lake and excellent wines.

GOURMET EXPERIENCE

The whole of Croatia, Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina or Macedonia is known for its good local food and the high quality of locally produced ingredients. Of course, we are talking about the Balkan areas with their almost unspoilt nature, which is, let us call it ‘the home of healthy food’.

On our excursions, we will take you on local food experiences such as the seafood of Croatia, the excellent meat dishes of Serbia and the traditional Bosnian cuisine with a strong influence of Ottoman culture. Your meals will be accompanied by a wide selection of wines and other typical drinks.

TRY SOME “BUREK” – DO YOU KNOW IT?

Burek is mostly associated with areas of the former Ottoman Empire, including the Balkan. Burek is very popular in Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also in Slovenia and all the countries of the region.It is a stuffed pastry made of thin puff pastry, with various fillings such as meat, cheese, spinach or potatoes. Traditionally, it can be baked without filling (empty), with stewed minced meat and onions, or with cheese. Modern bakeries offer fillings with cheese and spinach, apples, cherries, potatoes, mushrooms and other fillings.
Best place to try? Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia, is an excellent choice.
