Undiscovered Balkans

There’s only one way to improve upon a holiday to Montenegro and that’s to hop over the border to experience the stunning beauty of its neighbours as well! The Balkans is an area of staggering landscapes and diversity, so for a few years now, we have been slowly building a selection of trips to take you further off the beaten path in search of undiscovered adventure! All routes and destinations visited are based on our expert knowledge of this region, living as locals for more than a decade. 

From a week’s cross-border trekking from Montenegro into Albania, crossing the southernmost Dinaric Alps, to a cross-border kayaking expedition over Lake Skadar to reach Albania and the Adriatic Sea, our adventures are as thrilling as they are unique! Read on to discover our full roster of Undiscovered Balkans adventures.

 

Albania

With our outstanding guides and partners over the border we can now offer you many different tastes of Albania! From stupendous mountain vistas to UNESCO protected towns, you can choose our 3 day package if you just want a brief introduction – or you might like to go deeper and go on our Gastro/Cultural holiday, which also takes serious advantage of Albania’s delicious cuisine! If you’re looking for something tougher, how about hiking part of the Via Dinarica from Montenegro into Albania, or trying our unique cross-border kayaking holiday, (we’re the only operator with permission to cross this long-closed water border!)? These holidays can be selected by themselves or together with our popular multi-activity weeks.

Bosnia

Just over the border is possibly the least visited of all the countries in the former Yugoslavia. Bosnia, too has epic landscapes, fascinating towns and an intriguing history ready to be revealed to the more curious traveller! This tour mixes Montenegro and Bosnia in a perfect way, combining cultural city visits to Mostar and Sarajevo as well as activities out in pristine nature. The mission of this program is for guests to discover the real Balkan spirit, lifestyle, traditions and cultural complexity as well as natural beauty!

Croatia

Probably the most developed and visited of all the countries in the former Yugoslavia, you’d be forgiven for thinking that there aren’t many spots that haven’t already been discovered by modern tourists. But you’d be wrong! Our first cross-border kayaking trip (which takes you around the stunning Elafiti Islands, above, as well Lake Skadar) has already been getting rave reviews since its launch in 2017, and for 2021/21 we also plan to have a multi-activity holiday based on the idyllic island of Vis!
