The Grand Balkan Trip offers you an in-depth first-hand experience of the Balkans, but the duration of the tour also allows for a more easy-going pace. In this case, quantity enables quality, because taking the time for a longer tour gives you the ability to enjoy it more instead of burning out after the first couple of days of intensive sightseeing.

This Balkan travel adventure includes seven countries, six capital cities, two national parks, eight UNESCO heritage sights, and countless incredible moments. Our program will mix days full of sightseeing with free days and afternoons, to ensure that you get the most out of your Balkan trip, and see all the amazing sights, while also having the time to explore these unforgettable locations on your own.

You’ll start the tour in Belgrade, Serbia’s impressive capital, and continue to Novi Sad, the second-largest Serbian city after Belgrade. After a day in Croatia’s capital Zagreb, you’ll make your way to Slovenia. Apart from its capital Ljubljana, you’ll also explore Slovenia’s natural beauty, its mesmerizing Alpine lakes Bled and Bohinj, and its majestic underground world in the world-famous Postojna Cave.

You’ll continue bonding with nature in Plitvice National Park in Croatia, a breathtakingly beautiful place full of turquoise terraced lakes, and ethereal waterfalls. You’ll leave behind Croatia’s freshwater wonders, and spend some time by the salt water of the Adriatic Sea. Croatia’s historic coastal cities like Šibenik, Split, and Dubrovnik are destined to charm you and make you wish you would spend all of your summer vacations here. To steal your heart completely, you’ll also sail around Hvar and its nearby Dalmatian islands.

With all the adventures described so far, you will still have four countries to visit! It is a grand Balkan trip after all.

Mostar and Sarajevo, two of the most lively, fascinating cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Balkans at large, will give you an insight into the cultural influences of the Ottoman Empire on the Balkans. Montenegro’s gorgeous coastal cities of Kotor, Budva, and Ulcinj will give you another taste of the Adriatic. In Albania and North Macedonia, you’ll dive into the different cultures of these countries in their capitals Tirana and Skopje, respectively. But you’ll also make sure to take advantage of Albania’s beautiful Durres beach, and Macedonia’s incredible Lake Ohrid, and take some time to relax.

We’ve tried to convey the beauty of the Balkans in the itinerary above, but you’ll only really believe it once you’ve seen it for yourself. The only thing left for you to do is to book your trip and pack your bags!
