Explore The Balkans

Diverse History and Landscape, with a Splash of Self-Indulgence

From the sun-drenched Adriatic coast to the Dinaric Alps to the newly hip old city of Belgrade, the Balkans are a remarkably varied mosaic. You can be both hedonist and historian as you take in the sparkling Dalmatian beaches, visit the inland mountain towns, explore Ottoman and Ancient Roman architecture, and get to know the competing cultures, ethnicities, languages, and ideologies of the countries that once made up Yugoslavia.

Traveler Reviews

  • "I liked every part for different reasons. We had such a nice combination of driving through the countryside, seeing the cities, and meeting friendly people."
  • "Our [favorite part of trip] possibly was Albania; beforehand we knew so little about that country. The guide was excellent and very personable – as were others – and willingly answered all our questions. He even introduced us to big fresh figs right off the tree."
