ADVENTURE EXPEDITIONS IN THE BALKANS CROATIA / B&H/ MONTENEGRO / ALBANIA

UNTAMED takes you on unforgettable ADV expeditions, ridden almost entirely off road, on diverse terrains of the last European wilderness. Conquer the ruthless mountains of Albania. Drink from the painfully cold Croatian rivers. Get blisters from riding steep and rocky single trails of Bosnia. Let Montenegrin plains hypnotise you with rustling of their amber grass.
Our expeditions will ask you to push your bike and yourself to the max. In return you’ll get spectacular sceneries and the best rides of your life.

SOUNDS GOOD ALREADY?

BIG BOLD RIDES

This is not a tour for pretty boys and wannabe adventurers with dead-weight bikes! Members of our expeditions are skilled and experienced. They prefer to ride with riders equally good or better, and most importantly - with fellows they can rely on. They rev to feel, taste, experience and push boundaries!
So if you think of yourself as skillful, you can bet you’ll be needing all of your endurance and handiness. And some serious guts too! But it will be worth it.

IT'S NOT A TOUR AND WE’RE NOT GONNA BE
YOUR GUIDES

Let’s be clear - it’s not a tour, it’s an expedition! That means you’ll be fishing, repairing, helping, cooking, screwing in (and occasionally screwing up!). Don’t hesitate to show your strengths and take the lead in what you do best. You can fix a tent with a tire kit or open a beer with a bead breaker? Good, we could use that!
Forget the classic "tour guide" who does all the work while the rest follows. You’ll merely be riding with the fellow who’s already been around and knows the area, language and local culture of South Eastern Europe!

YOU CAN RIDE YOUR OWN BIKE OR KTM 690 ENDURO R

GETTING HERE ON YOUR BIKE

Your bike is welcome at all UNTAMED trips as much as you are! No matter where you’re coming from, we’ll make sure you leave your trace in the Balkans… and that the Balkans leaves a trace on you!

GETTING YOUR BIKE HERE

If you’re in Europe, train is a great option! We also work with some of the best motorcycle transport agencies that can get your bike here safely from any part of the world.

RENT A KTM 690 ENDURO R

KTM 690 Enduro R showed itself to be a great fit for UNTAMED expeditions. That’s why we got few in our small fleet. 690 is lightweight and agile, yet powerful and resistant. Its suspensions swallow everything we stumble upon. We make up for KTM's occasional whims by relying on our mechanical know-how and problem solving along the way. It hasn’t left us on the road so far!

MORE OPTIONS

UNTAMED team is open to all ideas and suggestions. Want to rent a bike of your choice, sell your own or buy a new one here in the Balkans? We’ll see what we can do!

WE COVER 4 COUNTRIES "ONLY" AND CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THEM

The Balkans is the best place in the world for adventure motorcycling. Join just one UNTAMED expedition and you’ll begin to understand where we get the courage to claim the name. This part of Eastern Europe is known for its wildly dramatic history and unbelievable variety of landscapes. It’s the region of contrasts so be prepared to switch from a sunny coastline to a snow covered mountain top in less than an hour.

THE MILEAGE

Each UNTAMED expedition has its technical parts. River crossings can get tricky. Roads shown in map sometimes simply fade away after heavy rains. The slowing factor of stunning sunsets and legendary homemade rakija takes its toll.

It’s authentic and intense...so it takes time and energy! That’s why it's almost impossible to pass more than 200 kilometers per day on our jaunts.
Given all this, the 4 countries we cover are more than enough. At least for now.

IT FEELS NOTHING LIKE HOME THAT'S WHY YOU’RE HERE

If you’re coming for fancy suites with towel swans on beds, we’re not your guys. You’ll find us sleeping in tents, mountain huts, homesteads and all the places that have a story to tell. They are an important part of the UNTAMED experience and we accept nothing less than a billion star accommodation with a 360° view, hence a sleeping bag, a mattress and a tent are a must have on all expeditions.

ABOUT UNTAMED ME AND ME

The biggest paradox of adventure tourism is that agencies sell ‘adventure’ but then avoid it as much as possible. The definition of ‘off-road’ and ‘adventure’ can get blurry. It often ends up in vanilla tours that just offer you a glance at enchanting things Eastern Europe has to offer.
We despise that approach and find motivation in giving people a once-in-a-lifetime trip that may be greasy and raw but also undeniably beautiful.
In the end, we shape our expeditions exactly how we’d like to get them in another part of the world.

ME

My name is Perica. It’s a bit tongue twisting, so Pero or Peri will do. I majored painting on Academy of Fine Arts in Zagreb and in my Clark Kent life I do multimedia and web design. UNTAMED is my idea, a lifelong passion and a getaway from everyday bullshit. I’m based in Zagreb, Croatia.
Extreme and outdoor sports have always been my interest. I'm a climbing instructor and a member of Croatian Mountain Rescue Service. I have also worked as a rafting guide and occasionally enjoy kayaking. If that’s your thing, you can enrich your expedition with outdoor activities and extreme sports I can assist you with.
I found my shtick in the motorcycling world, especially in adventure/enduro, because I get to put all my interests and skills in a good use.
Survival and painting, gastronomy and mythology, rescue techniques and programming, diving and sociology - everything is brought together on our trips. I need and often use it all.

My ride is the Tenere 660 and I dream of having a KTM 690 Factory Rally Replica.

I will be taking you to most of the expeditions but for bigger ones, I’ve gathered a team of people who have proved themselves to be as trustworthy and capable as I insisted them to be.
