Why you'll love this trip
  • Split is a haven of relaxation and culture. Unwind with a walk along the waterfront promenade and admire the impressive Diocletian's Palace.
  • Stroll through Plitvice Lakes National Park, marvelling at luminous lakes and waterfalls that appear to have been sketched by an artist.
  • Feast on Mediterranean fresh seafood, Italian-influenced antipasti and the crunchy, doughy dessert of fritule in culinary capital Zagreb.
  • Explore the streets, medieval buildings and restored castle of Ljubljana’s charming Old Town on foot. Your local leader will know all of the hotspots, plus the best cafes for a coffee break.
  • Romantic Venice is like no other city in the world. Be enamoured with its labyrinth of alleyways and canals, lagoon islands and endless historic attractions, so much so, you may want to extend your stay!

Is this trip right for you?
  • This trip is made for travellers who value their independence but also want the benefit of a local leader and a group of like-minded travellers. The itinerary has a mix of included activities and free time when your leader will offer suggestions. Please budget spending money for optional activities you want to partake in.
  • As accommodation on this trip is twin-share, single travellers will share a room with another traveller of the same gender. This trip is a great opportunity to get to know other like-minded people, so embrace it while you can. Keep in mind that hotels in Europe often don't have double beds, but rather two single beds that can be pushed together/apart. Rooms can be rather small, especially compared to American or Australian standards, and in most cases bathroom facilities will be shared rather than ensuite. Please note that a single supplement is not available on this trip.
  • Summer temperatures can be very high in many of the regions visited (over 40°C), which can be uncomfortable. It’s important to use sun protection, wear layers to combat the heat, and drink plenty of water. Please keep in mind that many European hotel rooms are not equipped with air-conditioning. Please carefully consider the time of the year you wish to travel and your suitability to that season.

The trip had an interesting itinerary - every town we visited was fascinating in its own way. Plitvice Lakes and Lake Bled were gorgeous. Our group leader Sando had amazing knowledge of all our destinations and helped to develop a positive group dynamic.

This was a brilliant trip to a beautiful part of the world. The highlight for me was Lake Bled in Slovenia - absolutely stunning. As Slovenia was high on my wish list, it would be nice if Intrepid could find a way for the group to leave earlier in the morning on the travel day from Zagreb to Ljubljana, even if that meant taking a bus not a train. While Lucija helped us organise our time in the afternoon in Ljubljana and our day at Lake Bled, I’d already done everything I wanted to in Zagreb and would have liked more time in Ljubljana. Every other part of the itinerary was great. Although wet on the day we went, Plitvice Lakes were beautiful. What made this trip even better was having the lovely Lucija as our leader! Definitely recommend this trip.

I booked this trip last minute without expectations and I was nervous about accommodations. I ended up being very happy and satisfied. With exception of one accommodation being externally small space, everything else was great.

This trip was really made special by our wonderful tour leader, Dijana, who arranged my most memorable birthday party to date! Overall this is a great itinerary, just consider adding a day before and after for enough time in Dubrovnik and Venice. Ljubljana and Bled were highlights along with the Plitvice Lakes. Hotels were basic but clean and local transport always comes with challenges like the air con not working - go with the flow and be ready for things beyond your control and you will be happy!
