Your Itinerary

Day 1. Belgrade - Bački Monoštor
Fly to Belgrade Airport where you will be met by your guide and transferred to Bački Monoštor, the starting point of our cycling tour. We pick up our bikes, than have time to explore the village at leisure before experiencing local hospitality at a welcome dinner and overnight in private accommodation.

Day 2. Bezdan
Commencing the trip with a short ride through the Upper Danube Natural Reserve, an area dubbed the “European Amazon” due to the surrounding dense, mature woodlands. We carry on traversing across beautiful scenery on the way to Bezdan – a picturesque Hungarian enclave known for it's taverna-style restaurants and its smoked river-fish art. We return to Bački Monoštor by less frequented track, taking in most serene landscapes. Overnight.

Day 3. Kupusina - Apatin
Today we tour to Apatin, mainly on tarmac, passing through urbanised Sombor and by Serbia's Grand Canal. We have an optional break at “Andric Csarda”, an elegant city-taverna that prides itself for an exquisite cuisine. We leave the main road and head towards the village of Kupusina. As the traffic gets considerably lighter we ride gently on peaceful canal banks, through lush green trees and grasslands. Arrive in Apatin in the late afternoon and overnight in tourist board-classified guest house.

Day 4. Karavukovo
After breakfast, we start riding to Karavukovo, by the Danube's widest stretch and along embankment paths. We pass through a wildlife reserve and ride under watchful eyes of rare birds. During the afternoon we will arrive into Karavukovo where we will be treated to a local speciality dinner and overnight in a traditional hunting lodge. 

Day 5. Deronje – Bač – Selenča - Bački Petrovac
The day will be packed with sightseeing during our journey. Firstly exploring the medieval fortress and the Franciscan monastery at Bač, than continuing onto Selenča village, where we make a half-way stop and learn about the history and traditions of the local Slovak population. We arrive at Bački Petrovac in the afternoon for a visit to the “Slovak House”, a museum of naive art, and “Urbanček gallery”. There is are optional visits to the newly open Aqua Park should you wish to soothe the muscles, or you can explore Old Kulpin Castle. Overnight at tourist board-classified guest house.

Day 6. Čelarevo - Gložan - Futog– Novi Sad
Depart for Čelarevo by main road, then proceed by B-road leading to the local brewery, the largest one in the Balkans, today owned by Carlsberg. We also pass through sleepy villages of Gložan and Begeč, than cycle on the Danube's embankment to Futog, ending the day in the Vojvodina's provincial capital of Novi Sad. We recommend a relaxing and gentle dusk cycling along this, the Danube's most beautiful stretch. Alternatively just take a leisurely wander down the city's pedestrianised centre. Overnight at tourist board-classified guest house.

Day 7. Fruška Gora - Zemun - Belgrade

In Belegiš, we are collected by the minibus then ferried across to Belgrade's Zemun district, a historic, bohemian part of the city, perched at the start of a dedicated riverside cycling track leading to Belgrade city centre.
