Croatia & The Balkans

Croatia & The Balkans Holidays


The easternmost of the 3 great peninsulas of Europe, the Balkans are made up of 10 countries, many still relatively undiscovered.

A varied and turbulent history has given the region a melting pot of cultures and architecture, where Roman ruins sit beside Austro-Hungarian villas and Ottoman Bazaars.

Imposing mountains and vast national parks make the region perfect for adventure activities, whilst the countries of Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina and Montenegro are ideal for an off the beaten track fly and drive holiday or even laid back beach break beside the crystal clear Adriatic waters.

  • WHERE TO GO IN CROATIA & THE BALKANS

    Croatia
    Holidays to Croatia are filled with adventure and stunning scenery with a break to suit every taste. Hit the open road to explore rural towns and ancient cities on a fly drive, hop between the islands of the sparkling Adriatic on the Dalmatian Coast, relax with a city break or a stay at a 5 star beach resort soaking up the sun whilst enjoying the fresh local cuisine.
    Montenegro
    Relatively undiscovered, Montenegro is a small but spectacular country. Towering mountain peaks, beautiful national parks and luxury resorts lining the sparkling Adriatic Sea make a visit to this hidden gem a wonderful escape.
    Bosnia & Herzegovina
    Home to an intriguing blend of cultures, history and spectacular scenery, Bosnia & Herzegovina is a captivating gem of the Balkan Peninsula. Whilst the scars of war are still sadly visible, the country’s natural beauty and rich cultures shine through.
    Slovenia
    An idyllic, natural paradise, Slovenia is an enchanting land of lakes and mountains. Known for its remarkable, lush landscapes, dominated by forests, snowy peaks, and sparkling glacial lakes, Slovenia is an ideal destination for an active holiday.
    Kosovo
    Europe's newest country may only be small but it’s attractions are mighty.

    Despite Kosovo's difficult past, the future looks much brighter and you'll find a warm welcome in this hospitable country.
    Moldova
    Europe's least visited country is wedged between Ukraine and Romania; two Eastern European powerhouses. But what Moldova lacks in size, it makes up for in surprises.
    Albania
    Just 3 hours from the UK, Albania is still full of mysteries for most travellers. Shaped by centuries of Ottoman rule and later decades of communist rule under Enver Hoxha, Albania's tangled history is reflected in its diverse cuisine and dearly held traditions.
    North Macedonia
    Tucked away into a corner of the Balkans, North Macedonia offers an off-the-beaten track experience often missing in Europe.
