Untouched nature, enchanting landscapes, great curves and even more beautiful gravel roads... If you make a stopover at the Adriatic Sea, get delicious food served and meet hospitable people, a dream journey for travel enduro friends is born. Starting from the starting point near Graz (A) we travel via Slovenia and Croatia to Bosnia & Herzegovina. There the Enduro fun begins, which takes us further to Montenegro, Albania and via Montenegro back to Bosnia. The end of the journey is then again at Graz in Austria.

Tour Characteristics

The tour is suitable for all those riders who have already gained some experience on narrow, winding gravel roads and dirt tracks and have a good grip on their touring enduro off the road. Travel enduros of all sizes are welcome on this tour. The use of at least road and off-road suitable all-round tyres is a prerequisite, especially in wet conditions, clearly off-road tyres (TKC 80, K 60 Scout) are of enormous advantage. This trip is not suitable for street motorcycles and enduros with pure asphalt tyres! It would be possible to take a passenger with you on the motorcycle, but it is not recommended.
