This one-week-long, guided, group tour includes the most essential destinations in the Balkans that will inspire you to discover this region further. Starting from the Serbian capital city of Belgrade, this trip will take you to the popular mountainous region of Zlatibor via the iconic Šargan Eight heritage railway before you enter into Bosnia and Herzegovina and head for Sarajevo.

Next on the itinerary is Mostar, the fortified city that is among the most popular destinations on the Balkan peninsula. From there, you will continue your journey via Perast and Kotor, the latter of which sees more than 5,000cruises a year, to reach the final destination of the trip, Dubrovnik, one of Europe's best preserved walled cities that has been in existence since the seventh century.

You will be surrounded by natural beauty and cultural highlights throughout this trip as you visit national parks and viewpoints and see forts and historic settlements. Take your time to get to know each destination and truly appreciate it, be it during a train ride through Tara National Park, a scenic boat ride along the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro or while admiring the shooting spots of the "Game of Thrones" series in Dubrovnik.

Plus, there is always a stroll down the cobbled alley of old downtowns and quaint villages that will reveal to you the rich heritage of this land. For more details, please go through the itinerary below.
