Itinerary >

Day 1 : Budapest – Plitvice

From the city streets to a watery wonderland, today we’ll head from Budapest to Plitvice National Park.  Stopping for a swim at Lake Balaton en-route, we’ll visit the Balkan Open Air War Museum for some local history before heading to the park for sunset, ready for a BBQ dinner and an evening chilling in a truly stunning part of the East, with a feel, look and culture all its own.

Day 2 : Plitvice – Split

Wake up to cascading waterfalls, turquoise lakes and the cleanest, freshest air in the East as we leave our bungalows (right in the centre of the park) to explore the stunning scenery before the crowds descend.  In the early afternoon we’ll get on the road towards Split, for a gorgeous drive along the Croatian coast towards the cosmopolitan town of Split, and the last awesome night of our trip.

Day 3 : Split

Our trip comes to an end…don’t forget to check out our Croatia Island Hopper or One Way Sail or our awesome Ottoman or Bohemian Treks; all depart Split on Saturday morning and link perfectly with the Mini Rhapsody.
