FEEL

Passing through Montenegrin and Albanian villages feels like a time-machine to a distant history. We’re the main event for local kids, who run after bikes shouting and laughing. For a moment it’s like you’re on another continent. Countless crossings over majestic mountains, however, remind you that it’s impossible to mistake this place for any other.

RIDING STYLE

We did our best to create expeditions where all riders will be equal. With this idea in mind, part of the planned route (up to 10%) will be ridden on terrains even we’re unfamiliar with! We’re a true expedition, independent and self-reliant. If we get into trouble, we’ll just have to figure out how to get out from it.

ACCOMODATION

On this expedition, as well as on other UNTAMED gems, we’re skipping dull, ordinary hotels. If we plan to sleep under a roof at all, we usually choose places that offer an extraordinary experience.

GASTRONOMY

Montenegro is a country of mountain villages, still somewhat isolated from civilization, and Albania has been in a blockade for a long time. Due to that, there are many opportunities in both countries to taste authentic, unchanged, native traditional food and drinks. On a few occasions we’ll be around Western World cuisine so don’t you worry about abstinence crisis from burgers and pizza.
