Day 1: Dubrovnik (Croatia). Arrive in Dubrovnik at any time, but the sooner you’re here, the more exciting activities you can do before our trip officially starts. Attend our welcome meeting in the late afternoon to get acquainted with your fellow travellers. Opt to join the group for dinner at a local restaurant afterwards, before we head out for an unforgettable first night together.

Day 2: Kotor (Montenegro).  Nestled between dramatic mountains and the Adriatic Sea, you’ll find a fortified, UNESCO-protected city that embodies adventure. From its narrow alleyways where it’s common to find cats stretched out on the cobblestone, to Mediaeval architectural gems that fill the Old Town squares, Kotor is something special. After crossing the border into Montenegro, a hidden gem country right next to Croatia, you’ll have all day to explore. You may be in the mood to explore the heart of Kotor, or you can check out all the nature that’s just nearby. There are so many exciting activities you can get up to today - including hiking trails, a national park, kayaking in the sea and an evening out! 

Day 3: Free day in Kotor. Take today at your own pace as you tick off all the places you’re most interested in seeing. Or if you’re ready for a brand new adventure, you could visit Risan’s Roman mosaics, take a day trip to the hidden gem of Perast or check out the beaches and mud therapy spas of Herceg Novi for the ultimate self-care day. 

Day 4: Kotor to Tirana (Albania).  Meet Albania: one of the most gorgeous hidden gems in all of Europe. In this single country, you can find staggering mountains, strikingly vibrant beaches and fun city breaks - so there’s an experience for every traveller’s taste. And first up on the Albania itinerary is Tirana, a capital city whose vibrant spirit is reflected in its varied architecture. After we’ve completed our orientation tour, you’re welcome to discover Tirana independently - from its essential museums to the nearby nature and unforgettable nightlife. 

Day 5: Gjirokastër and Saranda. Today we’ll pass through Albania’s mesmerising countryside with cameras in hand en route to Saranda, with an unforgettable half-day trip to the Stone City of Gjirokastër included. If you want to learn more about this UNESCO city’s fascinating heritage, the fortress is a fantastic place to start. Then we’ll arrive in Saranda for the late afternoon, giving you more than enough to soak up the beaches: an Albanian Riviera special! 

Day 6: Saranda to Corfu (Greece). Enjoy a free morning to explore Saranda. In the late afternoon, we will meet up to take a short and scenic ferry ride to the spellbinding island of Corfu. From the vibrant coastline to the rugged mountain range, seeing Corfu for the first time is like discovering paradise. When we arrive, there is a short orientation walk planned before you get to freely explore Corfu. 

Day 7: Corfu. There aren’t many places as beautiful as Corfu to wake up in. Spending all day by the beach sounds like a dream, but if you’re eager to explore more of the island, there are a few optional activities available like exploring Corfu on horseback and visiting the Temple of Artemis. 

Day 8: Corfu to Athens. Take an internal flight to Athens in the morning, with your afternoon completely free to explore this living museum of a city. Fill up on fried cheese, salads and the most amazing side dishes for lunch before uncovering the depths of Athens’ ancient history - including the legendary Parthenon. Tonight, let’s celebrate like the Greek gods!

Day 9: End trip in Athens. Our Mediterranean getaway has come to an end, and we hope you’ve had an incredible time exploring these four beautiful countries with your group and trip leader.

Your trip starts at 5pm on Day 1 in Dubrovnik at your accommodation. There are optional activities that you can book before the trip officially starts. If it’s your first time in Dubrovnik, we highly recommend getting an early flight or arriving the day before your trip starts to give you enough time to explore this beautiful city in greater detail. 

This trip finishes in the morning on Day 9 in Athens. There are no activities planned for today so you can depart at any time, but there is optional sightseeing that you can join in on. Many travellers prefer to spend an extra day here exploring, so if you’d like any help with arranging post-trip accommodation, just let us know!

This trip includes 8 nights of accommodation. You will stay in a collection of hotels and hostels with ideal locations and good facilities. These rooms are typically single-sex, multi-share rooms for 2 to 6 travellers.

No meals are included in this trip. But lucky for you, the Adriatic coast is known to produce some of the freshest food around: from the flavourful seafood to the simple yet delicious platefuls of fruit and vegetables. This trip is an exciting opportunity to physically experience four different cultures and cuisines, and see which country you like the taste of the most.
