Discover the rich history of Bulgaria, Macedonia and Kosovo, where influences from the East and the West collide. This trip showcases some of the cultural highlights of the central part of the Balkans, famous for ancient civilization traces, UNESCO world heritage monasteries and churches and the vibrant, laidback capital cities of Sofia and Skopje. Having been under numerous influences throughout the ages, both Bulgaria and Macedonia have an eclectic history where different cultures have all left their mark. But a visit to this region of the Balkan Peninsula would not be complete without experiencing the contrasting natural beauty it has to offer: national parks, high mountains, fertile valleys, famous wine regions and the peaceful, alluring Lakes Ohrid and Prespa – they are all part of this comprehensive itinerary.
  • Discover Skopje and Sofia - two of the Balkan's most vibrant capitals
  • 4 UNESCO sites including Bulgaria’s Rila Monastery
  • Macedonia's Tikveš wine region
  • World Heritage city and lake Ohrid
  • Visit Prizren, Kosovo's most historical city
  • Natural beauty, ancient sites, national parks and traditional Balkan cuisine

Accommodation listed under each day in each location are the standard hotels used. However, there may be some departures where groups stay at similar hotels of the same standard and quality. Single supplements are available on request.
