Other Need-to-Know Information about Montenegro
The geography of Montenegro is rugged and serene at the same time. The Adriatic offers beautiful beaches, blue waters, and warm weather, but all of that quickly fades into some of the most rugged terrain in Europe! On Montenegro motorcycle tours, you can go from a leisurely cruise along the sea, to high adrenaline mountainous corner carving in a matter of only a few kilometers. The climate varies directly with the terrain. A Mediterranean climate exists along the coast and southern portion of the country, while temperatures drop quickly as the elevation increases, and snow will persist in the mountains well into springtime.
The Bay of Kotor region offers two UNESCO World Heritage sites - the towns of Kotor and Perast. These smaller towns offer nearly endless views of natural beauty and historical architecture. Further south along the Adriatic coast, Budva and Becici are renowned for their beaches and beachside resorts. From here, you can ride to the historical capital of Cetinje where you’ll find museums, monasteries and former embassies. Motor on to Podgorica, the modern capital city, and on to the heart of mountain tourism at Zabljak. Along the way, be sure to extend your two-wheeled adventure to the national parks of Lovcen, Skadar Lake, Durmitor, and others.
If you’re arriving by plane, that means you’ll land in Podgorica, as that is the location of the main international airport. Once here, you can easily catch a taxi into the city center. Train, bus, and boat travel are all possible means of travel into the country, and Balkan motorcycle tours will have no problem entering Montenegro from any of its neighboring countries. Citizens of the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and most European nations can enter Montenegro with only valid travel identification (i.e. a passport), and stay for up to ninety days.
