Want to enjoy the beauty of the Accursed Mountains from horseback? Join us on our horseback riding adventure! This adventure offers a whole new experience in the Accursed Mountain Range. For centuries, these mountains were traversed on horseback. Shepherds and their families would spend their summers in the mountains herding sheep and going to and from on the back of their trusty steed. Today, we pay homage to those who came before us with our horseback riding adventure.
ABOUT THE TOUR
This horseback riding tour will be an all day event. We will start with a short jeep ride up into the mountains to meet the horses. After getting familiar with the animals we will hit the trail. This trail will take you through some of the best riding that the region has to offer, which just happen to be the same trails used to ride on for centuries. The highlight of this adventure is connecting with your horse and the nature around you.
Riding through the mountains on horseback is a completely different experience that will leave you feeling refreshed. Half way through the day we will stop for lunch and give the horses a rest. After this we will slowly make our way back to the jeep.
HOW MUCH IS IT
This adventure is €100 with lunch included.

The Accursed Mountain Range offers terrain for every riding style. We specialize in one day and multi-day tours customized to your preferences and skill level.
The backcountry ski scene in Bogicevica, Montenegro is new and rapidly growing due to local legends blazing the trail at the Bogicevica Ski Club. These riders started off with nothing. No mentors, no gear, just a passion for skiing and a whole lot of heart. Boot packing it to the top of mountains and learning how to ski on whatever gear they could piece together, they made this tour possible.
Now, Balkan Mountain Adventure Company has embodied this spirit in our backcountry skiing adventure and build upon the dream of those who came before us. This tour is about embracing the spirit of skiing and riding amazing lines in our beautiful backyard playground.
