6 days with Contiki Rating:
Restricted to Ages 18-35
Day 1 Arrive Budapest
You've touched down, now it's time to check in and prepare for your Europe trip that starts tomorrow.
Day 2 Budapest to Ljubljana
This morning meet up with your Trip Manager - meet the squad and then we'll be ready for the road to Ljubljana, a name you'll be able to pronounce by the time we're leaving for Croatia.
Although you might find nods to neighbouring countries within Slovenian culture, a distinct identity has evolved from this melody of influences. After our guided walking tour, explore the bohemian art district of Metelkova Mesto, sit by one of the cities atmospheric watercourses & try all the incredible food on offer.
Day 3 Ljubljana to Plitvice Lakes
Next up is something altogether drop dead gorgeous...
A strong introduction to Croatia is on the cards today with cascading teal forest pools at Plitvice Lakes. Why this place is not famous world over as one of the prettiest places in Europe, we have no idea.
Day 4 Plitvice to Zadar
We'll hit the road and head south for Zadar.
Croatia, we can't get enough. So it's good that we have a couple more days to get to know you better. Arriving in Zadar will see us greeted with Roman ruins, and seaside vibes, so find a local restaurant, ask for the catch of the day and wash it all down with a Rakija, a Dalmatian drink that the region is famous for. All in the name of culture, of course.
Day 5 Zadar to Split
Today there's still exploring to be done and sights to see.
Tonight it's best get outside, grab a delicious dinner and & a few hours on the dance floor. The nightlife here goes off, and your Trip Manager knows all the best places to head, so go on, get out there and make this a night to remember.
Day 6 Depart Split
This morning, Split becomes sob town as the adventure ends and we say our teary goodbyes. We have two words: reunion trip. It's the only way to ease the pain.
All This Included
If you've got a few short days on the clock, then you better spend it well. With some of the hottest 'it' destinations on the clock, and your phone on full charge, these drool worthy spots are hard names to pronounce but will be hard to forget. Eat, sleep, explore repeat is the name of the game on this incredible snippet of these Balkan faves.
