Head from dreamy Dubrovnik to beautiful Bucharest on this bulked out trip through the Balkans. Picture this: beaches, beers, beautiful scenery and loads more. Ready to roll? Let's go!
It doesn’t get much better than this. Say hey to Dubrovnik before you meet the group and kick things off with a walking tour. Travelling solo? You won’t be for much longer. Exciting times ahead!
Yay! A free day in Dubrovnik! Spend some time checking out the residential homes further up in the Old Town for some awesome views, then enjoy a cold beer on the wall as the sun sets over the Adriatic. Alternatively, take to the water for a spot of optional sea kayaking around the city walls. There’s also a Game of Thrones tour to get stuck into if that’s your jam.
Say bye to Croatia, ‘cos we’re off to Albania via a pit stop in Kotor, Montenegro. That’s right – three countries in one day. Check you out, seeing the world like a boss!
Today we’re off to Ohrid. Think: medieval churches, monasteries, ruins and a lake so blue you’ll forget what stress even is.
Check out historic monuments one minute, then lie on a deck chair with your toes in the water the next... it ain't so bad here! This afternoon we've got a visit to the Monastery of St Naum lined up. From here, the views over Lake Ohrid are incredible.
Today it’s back on the coach for a drive to Macedonia’s capital, Skopje (pronounced SKOPE-yey.) Before we hit the big city, we’ll stop for a dose of daily greens at Valley Canyon. Think: 5,000 hectares of forest, monasteries and cool rocks.
Next stop: Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second-largest city. And with a visit to the quirky Rila Monastery on the cards, day seven of the trip is set to be a memorable one! Dinner’s up to you tonight, so be sure to seek out somewhere awesome to round off your day.
Sunny Beach: a place that does exactly what it says on the label. Think: sand, sea and multiple sunbathing opportunities! Want more? There’s also some pretty amazing nightlife to get involved with when the sun goes down.
Free days are the best days. Today you have two options: flick your towel out on the beach and resume your best tanning posish, or seek out some of the best local cuisine in one of the many restaurants. One thing’s for sure: it’s impossible to be bored here.
Another day, another country. We’re off to Bucharest – but first, we’ll make a pit stop in Ruse. This Vienna-inspired UNESCO town is sure to set your Insta feed on fiyah!
Bucharest: despite what the name suggests, today there’s no resting allowed! You have a mission: to hunt down cheap beers and vampires. For those wanting to wander, the Palace of Parliament and the Cismigiu Gardens are highly recommended. Psst: ten points if you find the Mini Arc De Triomphe. 10,000 steps? Too easy.
Time to say goodbye! Do a number swap and prepare for the next adventure...
