The "Balkan Adventure" trip starts from Budapest and ends in Dubrovnik. The "Balkan Adventure" trip is an active and outdoor tour that takes 15 days. You will travel through Dubrovnik, Osijek, Kotor and 6 other destinations visiting Montenegro, Serbia and 3 more countries. This is a guided small group tour. The trip includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Welcome to the Balkans, where the East meets the West and the new merges seamlessly with the old. Over the centuries, people have travelled to Eastern Europe for its fertile soil, natural resources and healing waters. This enchanting land, which has remained virtually untouched by tourism, boasts rich tradition, vibrant culture and mouth-watering cuisine. With historical attractions in Budapest, nightlife in Belgrade, Sarajevo's beautiful Old Town, Montenegro's Durmitor National Park and medieval Dubrovnik, this trip is delightfully different. Hike through stunning natural gems, drive through ever-changing scenery, hit up the nightlife after feasting on local favourites and even discover a family-run vineyard in Ilok from the 15th century.

Is this trip right for you
  • Don’t let the heat put you off travelling in summer! It can get hot (over 40°C), so it’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat and drink plenty of water. Please note that only some of the hotels and none of the public trains and buses in this region have air-conditioning.
  • Hotels in Europe often don't have double beds and rooms can be small by American or Australian standards. Some of the accommodation used on this trip have shared bathrooms.
  • If you have more time to explore the region, you may want to check out our trip 'Vienna to Dubrovnik' (trip code AMSNC). Most departure dates are designed to create these perfect combos.
  • There are some long walks and short hikes on this trip, so a reasonable level of fitness is recommended. Please read the day-to-day itinerary carefully to find out more details on each day's activities. Activities can be opted out of if you want to refrain from participating.
  • One of the pleasures of travelling in Europe is the ease at which cities can be explored on foot. Your leader will take you on frequent orientation walks, and you’ll be able to explore further in your own time. We recommend you pack comfortable walking shoes for this trip.
  • On this trip you must pack as lightly as possible because you will be expected to carry your own bag and although you won't be required to walk long distances with your luggage (max 30 minutes), we strongly recommend keeping the weight between 15kg / 33lb. Most travellers carry their luggage in a backpack, although an overnight bag with a shoulder strap would suffice if you travel lightly. Smaller bags or backpacks with wheels are convenient although we recommend your bag has carry straps to accommodate the cobbled streets, uneven surfaces, stairs and steps you are likely to encounter while carrying your luggage. You'll also need a day pack/bag to carry water and a camera etc for day trips.
COVID VACCINATION POLICY
  • Proof of vaccination against COVID-19 is no longer mandatory on departures after 1st January 2023.
