Epic Balkans

Get a true taste of the Balkans on an epic adventure from the Pearl of the Danube, Budapest, down the Adriatic coast to the island of Corfu. On this 18-day journey, you’ll travel to Belgrade for a taste of a European city on the up, learn about the war years in Sarajevo, stop by the famed Old Bridge of Mostar and discover the beachside gems of Budva and Dhermi Beach. Discover epicurean delights, political history of Albania’s capital, lay beachside on the Albanian riviera and wind up sun-kissed on the beaches of a Greek island. There’s battle zones, beaches, bunkers and bars all together, and by melding the past with the present, the historic with the euphoric, this is a trip that ticks all of the boxes.
