I have been planning this solo tour to the Balkan countries during the last 4 months (Long winter in Denmark).

Starting date is April 12, 2018, and the rough plan is to take the bike on the train from Hamburg to Vienna, and then ride down the Adriatic Sea coast to Albania, Cross over to Greece and Turkey, and then go north again through Bulgaria, Romania, and Hungary.

The trip is around 4500 kms, not counting the 2 x 800 km on the train through Germany, and I have 14 days to complete the Balkan tour.

4500 km in 14 days does not sound too challenging, but road conditions in the area is not always the best, and I have allowed time for a bit of sightseeing too.

The planned route will take me through the following countries:

  • Germany
  • Austria
  • Slovenia
  • Kroatia
  • Bosnia
  • Montenegro
  • Albania
  • Macedonia
  • Greece
  • Turkey
  • Bulgaria
  • Romania
  • Serbia
  • Hungary
