Location / Bivoauc

This year’s rally bivouac finds its home in the rugged beauty of Montenegro’s mountainous terrain where you’ll discover a unique accommodation experience: the mountain “Katuni”. These rustic villages provide comfortable, yet simple accommodations.

Don’t miss the chance to savor traditional dishes like Cicvara and Kačamak, cooked over open fires. Experience warm hospitality and safety in these remote areas, making it an unforgettable Montenegrin mountain adventure.

For those who prefer the comforts of civilization, just a stone’s throw from our bivouac, there’s a mountain resort offering comfortable, modern accommodations with breathtaking mountain vistas.

Routes / Terrain

In contrast to the challenging terrain of the Croatian Mediterranean Dinarides, the Montenegrin Dinarides offer a more accessible and forgiving landscape.

The rally consists of about 50km of prologue and four stages, each spanning 100-200 kilometers.

You have the opportunity to experience an exceptional rally raid through the captivating Montenegrin Dinarides. You will have the opportunity to traverse a range of landscapes, from expansive mountain plateaus and river crossings to ancient forests with a rich historical significance. While tackling the peaks of Montenegro’s mountains, you wuill encounter majestic eagles soaring overhead.

Navigation

Navigation in professional rally classes is exclusively through roadbooks, either in paper or digital formats. In the amateur class, GPS navigation is also permitted. Each night before the briefing, drivers will receive or be sent roadbooks and GPS tracks. During the briefing, any potential changes to roadbooks or tracks will be communicated to all participants. 

Safety

Our proven safety system encompasses a skilled team of experienced rescuers from the local mountain rescue service who know the terrain like the back of their hands. Alongside them, we have off-road emergency vehicles, doctors on motorcycles, and cutting-edge tracking and safety devices that warn riders of potential hazards but also enable communication, ensuring constant contact with drivers. This real-time monitoring adds an extra layer of security, allowing riders to focus on roadbook navigation and riding. More about the devices

Tracking / Scoring

Our 2023 tracking device has been carefully developed to meet specific needs of our riders, considering the terrain that dominates the Dinaric Alps and taking into account various scenarios we experienced as well as inputs / reviews of numerous riders during the past 4 years of the Dinaric Rally’s existence.

I was riding the dinaric already one year ago with the big 1250 gs. A crash in the prolog ruined my dinaric plans. So I m looking forward to give it a second try with a new big rally bike and in a new location. I m hyped to tame the dinaric beast.

General Information

The Rally

Dinaric Rally is a sporting event that takes place on a variety of grounds and is designed to demonstrate the skills, endurance of competitors and reliability of their machines. In addition, as one of the most important distinguishing factors, in this discipline competitors prove themselves in the skill of navigation.

The rally takes place on different terrains in natural landscapes. The organizer carefully chooses the terrain but usually does not change the terrain in any way and does not affect its appearance.

Some common landscapes are:

  • mountains, and rocky terrain
  • rivers, dry riverbeds, muddy paths
  • open public roads
  • natural vegetation, shrubs, tall grass, forests
  • asphalt roads and offroad
  • terrain with snow conditions

The area

The Dinaric Alps (also known as Dinarides) are one of the most untamed and rough mountain ranges in Europe. They extend across whole western Balkan Peninsula, from the Julian Alps in Italy to the Šar and Korab Mountains in Albania and are the largest karst area in the world. The Dinarides are mainly formed of Dolomite, Limestone, Sandstone and Conglomerates. The whole area is sparsely populated. One of the most prominent features of the Dinarides are the numerous karst rivers of exceptional beauty. As you might have already guessed, riding through this terrain is a unique and memorable experience.

The rally caters to all riders! It is a challenging adventure for small and big motorcycles, quads and SSVs. The dynamic tempo of the rally and the constant change in scenery will surely quench your thirst for adventure. It all happens so quickly! At one moment you are destroying your tires on razor sharp limestone and the next you are riding through lush meadows. Then, you are drowning in deep mud and around the corner you are bathing and drinking water from crystal clear karst rivers. And the views? You guessed it; the views are breathtaking!

Locals

For thousands of years, the Dinarides have served as a shelter for people running from all sorts of troubles – from rampaging conquering armies to unbearable life in civilization. Here, high in the harsh mountains, cut by limestone blades, spiked by bramble and wind-blown by powerful Bura wind strikes, the Balkan mentality was shaped. The locals, just like the extraordinary natural beauty of the Dinarides, are what make this adventure unique!

Absolute and a priori respect for the local population, tradition, culture, customs and way of life is expected and will be strictly required from every rally participant!

Ecology

We have incorporated high standards of environmental protection into the rules of the rally. All riders and participants will be required to adhere to the environmental protection code that has also been implemented in the scoring system.

We love nature! Riding a motorcycle off paved roads is a passion that builds on our biggest and primary passion, which is to be out in nature, to travel and to explore.

The organization of the rally allows us to rise awareness, within a controlled environment, and encourage the conservation and protection of nature among the motorcycle riders as, de facto one of the largest subcultures in the Western world!

Ecological aspects embedded in the principles and rules of the Dinaric Rally:

  • We support local organizations dedicated to nature preservation and protection.
  • All waste, used oil, used / broken motorcycle parts and similar, will be disposed of by the organizer according to modern principles and available disposal methods.
  • Compliance with legal provisions, related to the conservation and protection of nature is strongly recommended.
  • Participants are required to adhere to a defined route as wheels can damage and destroy grass and crops.
  • All participants must absolutely respect nature and all living creatures that they encounter during the rally!

We are passionate about riding, but we are first and foremost passionate about nature!

Take on the Dinaric Rally and experience the rush of pure off-road adrenaline.
