Itinerary
Click for Dates and Prices Day 1 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 2 Ljubljana
You've probably seen pictures of Lake Bled, but nothing will prepare you for the real thing. With its fairytale medieval castle reaching out of an islet, surrounded by the towering peaks of the Julian Alps and the turquoise waters of the lake itself, it really is like something out of a Disney movie. After a morning of swoonin at all that beauty, we'll head back into Ljubljana for a free evening to grab dinner. We recommend our Bitemojo FTA, which allows you to head to local eateries and try authentic cuisine, guided by an app on your phone. (Breakfast)

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. (Breakfast, Dinner)

Day 4 Plitvice to Split via Krka National Park
We'll hit the road this morning for Split.On the way we'll have an option to experience even more natural beauty at the famous Krka Waterfalls. As well as being one of the most photogenic places you've ever seen, you'll also have a chance to cool down and take a dip in the azure river as tumbling waterfalls spray all around you. These 7 magnificent falls are some of the most beautiful in the world. The best part? Unlike Plitvice, you can actually take a dip in the azure waters.On the way we'll have an option to experience even more natural beauty at the famous Krka Waterfalls.These 7 magnificent falls are some of the most beautiful in the world.
