Day 1: Budapest to Plitvice
We head south out of Budapest onto the UNESCO listed Plitvice National Park, via Lake Balaton, where we stop for a swim. We visit the Balkan open air war museum, which is stunningly real in its appraisal of the Balkan War of the early 90's. We arrive into the National Park at sunset ready for a barbeque dinner in the middle of this aqua wonderland. Accommodation is in bungalows in the park so you will wake up to amazing scenery and clean, crisp, fresh air. Today our journey enters a new region of Europe, the Balkans, where the look and feel is really different. The food, the language, the culture and the people all change.
Day 2: Plitvice to Split
We are the first in the park in the morning which means you get to wander through this amazing aqua wonderland before the crowds descend. The cascading waterfalls and aqua green lakes will leave you ready for the Croatian coast. We spend the whole morning here and then set off on a memorable drive to the Croatian coast and a night out in the cosmopolitan town of Split. We have such good friends here so you'll be in good hands on your final night.
Day 3: Split
You are free to travel on. Check out our Croatia Sailing trips, Bohemian Trek or the Balkan Trek. All depart Split on Saturday.
