The Balkan Trail 2017 tour starts in Budapest and ends in Dubrovnik. The Balkan Trail 2017 is an Explorer tour that takes 8 days taking you from Budapest to Dubrovnik and 3 other destinations in Europe. The Balkan Trail 2017 includes trip leader, accommodation, meals, transport and some activities. Please see the Includes section for details.

Join us as we venture into the very heart of the stunning Balkans and encounter a region whose fascinatingly varied history and culture is as rich as its breathtaking natural scenery is unforgettable. Beginning amid the beautiful romanticism of Budapest, we will travel through the Balkan nations and experience the splendour and charm of cities like Belgrade and Sarajevo and witness how they have overcome their turbulent past. Travelling between each exciting destination means journeying through the region’s exquisite countryside, which is punctuated with historical towns and timeless villages as we make our way to picture perfect Dubrovnik, whose white medieval walls that sit in striking contrast to the deep-blue Adriatic beside it are an eternal favourite of any traveller to the Balkans.
Day 1 Budapest, Hungary

Your house in Budapest awaits. Meet your Trip Leader and prepare for two days to get down and Danube (that be the river) with twin cities, Buda and Pest. Check out Heros' Square, Parliament House, the National Palace, Fisherman's Bastion and swanky Andrássy Ave. After gorging on goulash, cabbage rolls and dumplings, roll into bed.

Day 2 Budapest

Day 3 Budapest to Belgrade, Serbia

More of Eastern Europe's unique mix of glasnost and capitalism as we dig into Belgrade, capital of modern-day Serbia as well as the former Yugoslavia. A product of the former nations of Yugoslavia, Serbia's religious and political past has cultivated a diverse cultural landscape throughout the city. Thank your patient hunger with a local stew and sip some traditional plum brandy. You'll fit right in.

Next: beat the crowds in up-and-coming Sarajevo. Recovering from its dark past, torn apart by war in the 90s, the beautiful city is still heroically rebuilding itself and is widely underrated.
