The Balkan Blitz 2017 includes trip leader, accommodation, meals, transport and some activities. Please see the Includes section for details.

Come discover a region where old walled cities and beautiful terracotta-roofed villages decorate a striking coastline, whose rocky, pine-covered hills drop straight into gorgeous blue sea. Join us as we tour the Balkans starting in fabulous Dubrovnik and visiting many of the region's other gems, such as Montenegro’s fascinating Kotor and the beaches of Budva, before we head inland and explore Croatia’s breathtaking Plitvice Lakes and Slovenia’s quaint capital, Ljubljana. Finally ending amid the romantic beauty of Budapest, this fabulously rewarding tour of the Balkans is a travel experience that will stay with you forever.
Day 1 Dubrovnik

Jay Z and Beyoncé rate it and so should you. Meet the city walls of King's Landing and the sunsets they never showed you on HBO. If home is where the heart is, this is as far as you go.

Included Activities:
-Guided tour of Dubrovnik with local guide

Day 2 Dubrovnik to Budva, Montenegro

The Dalmatian coast is spotted with all sorts of wonders and today we make like Ned Stark and head off for Montenegro. Make sure you climb up the parapet in Kotor, the view will take away whatever breath you have left.


Day 3 Budva

Part beach resort part walled medieval wonder-city, Budva should keep you well occupied today.


Day 4 Budva to Zadar, Croatia

Listen to the ocean play an instrument in Zadar. The Sea Organ is a quirky art installation that sits amongst the city's eclectic mix of Roman ruins and public art. More cool facts await you on a guided city tour with your Topdeck Trip Leader.

Included today:
-Guided tour of Zadar


Day 5 Zadar to Plitvice Lakes

Next up: bliss and waterfalls at the Plitvice Lakes National Park.


Day 6 Plitvice Lakes

Today is brought to you by Mother Nature. Made up of 16 lakes connected by streams and waterfalls and surrounded by 300 square kilometres of national park, Plitvice Lakes didn't make it onto the UNESCO World Heritage list without reason. Hike up to see the tallest waterfall in Croatia or glide across the crystal blue lakes in a rowboat. Mindfulness just got a whole new meaning.

Included today:
-Plitvice Lakes National Park


Day 7 Plitvice Lakes to Ljubljana, Slovenia

Shoot one last longing look at the Lake before arriving in Ljubljana (lyoob-lya-nah) - capital of Slovenia. Jump in the Delorean (or the 70m funicular) and glance back to the Middle Ages on a walking tour - the Ljubljana Castle and Old Town here have been waiting for you since Celtic times. Tonight, hit up military-barracks-turned-bar-and-gallery-strip, for a tea or vino with a side of live music and underground art installations.


Optional Activities:
-Ljubljana at Night Tour

Day 8 Ljubljana to Budapest, Hungary

Out of Slovenia and into Hungary, our trip ends on arrival into Budapest. Go hunt down some tasty goulash, quirky ruin bars and the fiendish Rubik's cube. See you next time.
