Itinerary

Discover the Balkans

Day 1 - Zagreb

Arrive at any time. Please make your own way to the joining hotel. Zagreb is the capital of Croatia and has a very charming old city, complete with cobblestone streets and medieval buildings. Be sure to sample some of the delicious local food and drink. There are also a number of museums to explore focusing on art, history, and archaeology. After the meeting, opt to head out for a meal in a local restaurant to get to know your CEO and travelling companions.

Day 2 - Zagreb/Plitvice Lakes National Park

Enjoy an excursion to Plitvice Lakes National Park with a local guide and learn about the diverse wildlife and unique bird population. This evening, enjoy a traditional peka (baked vegetable and meat dish) dinner cooked on hot coals. Entrance to the park is included and there are many opportunities for walking and relaxing in one of Croatia's most famed wonders.

Day 3 - Plitvice Lakes National Park/Split

Continue on to Split. In the early evening, take a guided walk around the Diocletian Palace, one of the most imposing Roman ruins in Europe.

Day 4 - Split

Enjoy free time to explore this charming seaside town. Opt to visit the local market and gobble up some Croatian delicacies. For a little more activity, visit Marjan's peak, with gorgeous views over the city, or hit up some of the hiking and biking trails in the area.

Day 5 - Split/Sarajevo

Travel to Mostar. Walk in the ancient town, visiting the famed Stari Most (Old Bridge), then continue to Sarajevo for the evening.

Day 6 - Sarajevo

Learn about the Siege of Sarajevo from a local expert who lived through it. Visit the Tunnel of Hope and Trebevic Mountain, and gain insight into how the people of this city moved beyond conflict. After, visit a market and enjoy a local lunch with your CEO.

Day 7 - Sarajevo

Enjoy a free day to explore at your leisure. Walk around the cobblestone streets of the Old Town (Stari Grad) while taking in the architecture of diverse places of worship. This is also a great place to shop and visit markets. The Latin Bridge is worth a visit as it played an important role in the history of this area. This is the site where the Archduke of the Austro Hungarian Empire, Franz Ferdinand, was assassinated, leading to the beginning of World War I.

Day 8 - Sarajevo/Kotor

Cross over to Montenegro for two days on the Bay of Kotor. Opt to visit the Roman mosaics in Risan, take a leisurely stroll in Perast and the islands, or go sea kayaking in the spectacular bay. Continue to Montenegro and travel to the Bay of Kotor, a region that is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Day 9 - Kotor

Enjoy a free day to explore. Opt to visit the Risan Roman mosaics and take a leisurely stroll in Perast and the islands, or go sea kayaking. If relaxing is more your style, the beaches of Herceg Novi offer a great escape. There are also local mud therapy spas nearby to test the natural healing properties of the area's sand.

Day 10 - Kotor/Dubrovnik

Visit a family-run agroturizam villa surrounded by Mediterranean gardens and sweeping views of the Adriatic. Meet our local host then enjoy a traditional lunch of local ham, cheeses, and wine. Continue to Dubrovnik, the "Pearl of the Adriatic," and walk the old city walls. Cross into Croatia and travel to Dubrovnik, known as the "Pearl of the Adriatic." Set on the Dalmatian coast, Dubrovnik has been an important maritime town in the region for centuries. Surrounded by medieval walls, it is rich in history and is a beautiful city to explore, filled with stunning architecture, museums, and fountains.

Day 11 - Dubrovnik

Enjoy a free day to explore the old town fortifications or take a boat trip to one of the nearby islands. The red roofs of the old city make for spectacular photos, and the seaside cafes serve up delicious seafood.
