This epic cross-European adventure offers an intriguing combination of Central Europe’s castles and romantic squares with the Balkan’s own historic towns and wondrous landscapes. But this trip isn’t a cobweb-enshrouded history tour—you’ll connect with village life, immerse yourself in urban centres and get active with outdoor pursuits, including kayaking in Montenegro and hiking through diverse country. With 29-days devoted to this journey, this is your chance to discover what still feels like a well-kept secret.
