If you are going in direction toward Kočevje, look for "Mašun" or "Jelenov Žleb" , you have plenty of gravel around those places.

Phil,

I'm heading to Croatia at the end of May. I'll be there with the wife for a week, then heading back. Maybe we can meet up.

Hi all,

We are leaving in 4 days for a trip thru Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia. We will ride some of the mdmot offroad tracks in Croatia.

How is the snow situation in the Durmitor mountains? Are the mountain roads/tracks free of snow? Anyone knows or is there a way to find out (webcam, tourist office?)?
We would like to ride this section and take some offroad trails where possible:

Hi all,

If anyone needs any info or specific things to see, please write here in the thread.

Mountains in the region offer a lot to see and ride. Bosnia is really beautiful and Monte Negro is so small but yet so diverse. You can get a feeling by watching at the map that You can ride across Monte Negro in no time, but man you'll be proofed wrong in no time .

Because the weather is acting crazy and the temps in the mountains are bellow the average, there is small chance to experience snow up there, but that would only make things more interesting .

ride on

hi frgich,

i am looking forward on a ~3 week trip from austria down south towards slovenia, croatia, bosnia, montenegro, serbia, bulgaria and maybe romania. i have no clue if it is possible in that timeframe (05.06 - 29.06) but i'll see how far i can get . i'm not a a big fan of city exploring, i'd rather ride up mountains and enjoy the view of mother nature - do you have ideas on how to get as much offroad riding as possible done on this trip? also any ideas on "must have been there"-places along this route?

i'll be riding my fairly new to me honda crf250l and am so stoked allthough i have barley planed anything yet

thanks in advance and ride safe

Well sorry to say I, m now sat in a hotel in east Italy, had 1 day off road in Croatia and 3 very hard wet days in Bosnia and Herzegovina
Both great countries for off roading but the weather got the best of me and decided to cut the trip short and return later
Pics and vids to follow

That's a real bummer with the weather Phil. I'll be there in early/mid July. Let's did together then? Can you please make sure the rain stops before then!
