Croatia Adventure – Zagreb to Dubrovnik


A trip from Zagreb to Dubrovnik is not your backpacker’s typical European tour – it’s way better. In one week, venture from historic Zagreb along the Adriatic Coast to stunning Dubrovnik. 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 photograph – travel with young and fun travellers, and you’ve got friends for life.
