Wanted: Routes through Slovenia Croatia Bosnia & Herzegovina Montenegro Albania

Hi guys,

Just wondered if anybody has routes they can recommend on and off road for motorcycle travel through any of the below:

Slovenia
Croatia
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Montenegro
Albania

It would be amazing if anybody has GPX files etc to help us plan. If so please fee free to email me the route to rob@tallylight.tv

We're leaving very early in the season (Mid March) which isn't ideal so any advice or places to avoid would be great.


Thanks Again.

Hi

If you have that much time, then get yourself loking at the tracks and routes created on BestBikingRoads.com

They have some great ideas, and plenty to choose from

Cheers from Laos

I went through the Balkans on my way to Mongolia this year. I decided to take the Adriatic coastal road. Croatia is gorgeous, lots of good twisty roads. Make sure you check out Dubrovnik, I skirted it but wished I'd stopped, it's beautiful. Bon Voyage. I wild camped and stayed in hostels, but the latter are probably seasonal. The Anton Hostel in Tivat, Montenegro is great, especially if you like hippy communities (take the small road behind the gas station and follow it up the hill).

I've looked through the bestbikingroads but didn't find much. All advice and routes preferably off road would be great.

Thanks

There are some good forest roads in Slovenia - logging roads etc, which are easy to get to. They are everywhere, particularly around Bled and Lake Bohinj. Also do the Visic Pass - spectacular. We did the coastal road in Croatia as well - superb riding, even on the manky scooters we were on.

Also did some very rough tracks - which might have been actual roads; not sure - in the hills above Tirana, and then up and over mountains towards the Greek border in the Pogradec area. We didn't have a route as such, just a general direction down through the Balkans, Albania, Montenegro and Greece then onwards to Mongolia, but just followed tracks and roads that looked interesting, as we found them. And we were on 110 Chinese copies of Honda C90s, which made it all the way to Ulan Bataar via some very dodgy roads. So if they can, then anybike can, even in crappy weather.
