Day 1: Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik: Jay Z and Beyoncé rate it, and so should you! After meeting with the group, we’ll take a wander around the city’s tiny cobblestoned streets and explore a few hidden cafés and shops. Later we’ll sit down to a welcome dinner together before checking out the glitzy nightlife. It’s gonna be an amazing eight days!

Included Activities:
-Local guide in Dubrovnik

Day 2: Dubrovnik to Budva, Montenegro
Hands up who needs more beach in their life? Well, you’re on the right trip! Today we’re hitting the road to Budva – the ‘Miami of Montenegro’. Whether you choose to laze on the sand and roll into bed or hit the clubs and party till dawn, you can’t lose!


Day 3: Budva
Part beach paradise, part walled medieval wonder-city, Budva’s got plenty to keep you occupied. After breakfast, the city is your oyster. And… go!


Day 4: Budva to Zadar, Croatia
Today we’ll listen to the ocean play an instrument in Zadar. Yep, you read that right. The Sea Organ is a quirky art installation nested within the city’s eclectic mix of Roman ruins and public art. More cool facts await you on a guided city tour with your brainy Trip Leader.

Included today:
-Walking tour of Zadar


Day 5: Zadar to Plitvice Lakes
Next up: bliss and waterfalls at 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 for nothing. 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:
-Entry to Plitvice Lakes National Park


Day 7: Plitvice Lakes to Ljubljana, Slovenia
Shoot one last longing look at Plitvice Lakes before arriving in Ljubljana (lyoob-lya-nah), the capital of Slovenia. The Ljubljana Castle and Old Town have been waiting for you since Celtic times, so it’d be rude not to check them out. Tonight, hit up the strip for a tea or vino with a side of live music.


Optional Activities:
-Ljubljana pub crawl
-Food tour of Ljubljana

Day 8: Ljubljana to Budapest, Hungary
Our final destination is Budapest, where this trip wraps up. Go hunt down some tasty goulash, quirky ruin bars and a fiendish Rubik's cube before heading home. See you next time!
