Join us for 15 magical days in a land where mountain meets sea, empires rub shoulders, history is measured in millennia, and natural beauty abounds at every turn. Our small group will take a deep dive into the many wonders of Croatia and Slovenia, from glittering Adriatic seas to one of the world’s longest caves, and from exuberant open-air markets to a fairytale medieval castle. We’ll stand in the footprints of Roman emperors, Franciscan monks, and Hapsburg princes. Our journey will take us to sun-splashed beaches, turquoise lakes, cascading waterfalls, and alluring islands. Everywhere we go, we’ll relish delectable foods and fine wines, while we admire the lively, indomitable spirit of the Croatian and Slovenian peoples.

This is a singular opportunity to deeply experience one of the most unspoiled, captivating regions in all of Europe. Don’t miss out. Book early!
