The Great Balkan Ride explores the hinterland of southeastern Europe experiencing the haunting history of Sarajevo, traveling through the mountains in Montenegro and reveling in the astonishing atmosphere of Albania before finishing in Greece. This ‘minimal assistance’ rally challenge through some of the most spectacular scenery in Europe will let you experience these diverse cultures, try the wonderfully varied cuisine and meet some of the friendliest people in the world along the way.
A real challenge of self-reliance to you, your team and your vehicle this is not a journey for those with a nervous disposition.
Too many events coddle the competitors swindling them out of the thrill and satisfaction of knowing they achieved the finish by their own efforts alone. We at the Travel Scientists will not mother you and rob you of your accomplishments being yours by holding your hand every step of the way.
Traveling long hard roads with almost certain encounters with unpredictable obstacles we at the Travel Scientists give you a route with daily start and finish points to follow, but we leave it up to you to find the fun you want to have along the way.
