Make new friends over drinks along the Adriatic, scramble around medieval fortresses, connect with the culture in charming old villages, take in sweeping countryside views of the Balkans, explore Diocletian’s Palace on a guided tour

Along the way, you’ll hit the highlights — did we mention the beautiful lakes of Plitvice or the island of Hvar? But you’ll also discover a Europe too often ignored by travellers. Party in exclusive clubs and wander historic and picture-perfect old lanes. Come away from Europe with more than just great photographs — travel with young and fun travellers, and you’ve got friends for life.
