Itinerary
Day 01. 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 02. 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 03. 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 04. 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 05. 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”.

Overnight at tourist board-classified guest house.
Day 07. Fruška Gora - Zemun - Belgrade There are a lot of miles to cover today, so there is an optional minibus ride to the riding start point in the hilltop village of Čortanovci, where a long descent will take us to the Danube’s picturesque shore side villages of Beška, Krčedin, Stari Slankamen and Surduk. 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.
