DAY 1 Sofia, Bulgaria

Are you ready for this? Your Balkan Adventurer trip starts here! Tick off the must-sees (hello, Aleksander Nevski Cathedral) before meeting the Topdeck crew later today. With a welcome dinner included, you’ll all be best Balkan buds in no time.

DAY 2 Sofia

Free day to explore this gem of a capital city. Hot tip: get on down to the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and make sure you go inside too. You can thank us later. But for the main event, let’s go skiing (optional). We’ll make our way to Borovets ski resort where you can hit the slopes whatever your ability. Ready to shred?

DAY 3 Sofia

Survived the après-ski and want a second day of skiing? We’ve got you covered (optional). For non-skiers, take a scenic open-air lift ride and hike to the Seven Rila Lakes in Rila Mountain (optional). It’ll be a view to remember. There’s also the chance to visit the beautiful Rila Monastery (optional). Talk about spoilt for choice!

DAY 4 Sofia to Belgrade, Serbia

Serbia here we come! Curl up on the coach as we cruise into Belgrade. Once we arrive, we’ll show you how to explore this city like a pro. Later, why not hit the town? YOLO is the motto after all.

DAY 5 Belgrade

Why not take a trip along the banks of the mighty Danube and into Belgrade's Old Town district to investigate the local hot spots? Belgrade Fortress, the bohemian hub Skadarlija and Republic Square are also waiting to be explored.

DAY 6 Belgrade to Sarajevo, Bosnia & Herzegovina

This morning we’ll pay a sobering visit to the Srebrenica Memorial (which honours the victims of the 1995 genocide) before we move on to Sarajevo. Here, we’ll follow our local guide and learn all about the city’s war-torn past. Tonight, discuss everything you’ve learned over dinner. This one’s on us.

DAY 7 Sarajevo to Plitvice Lakes, Croatia

On our way to one of the most beautiful parts of Eastern Europe today. Get ready for 300km squared of awesomeness at Plitvice Lakes National Park.

DAY 8 Plitvice Lakes

Get excited – on day eight, we’ll make our way to one of the most beautiful parts of Eastern Europe. Yep, we’re looking at you, Plitvice Lakes National Park! In the right conditions, the park’s waterfalls freeze over and the trees get covered in a blanket of snow, turning it into a real-life winter wonderland.

DAY 9 Plitvice Lakes to Budapest

Tear your heart away from the beautiful Plitvice Lakes as we make tracks to Budapest. See the sites on an included driving tour before tucking in to one last dinner with your travel pals.

DAY 10 Budapest
