BEYOND Travel has seen ongoing demand from travellers seeking itineraries that combine several destinations to create a comprehensive Eastern Mediterranean experience.
“Australian travellers have always had a keen interest in the Mediterranean; with the constant growth of interest over the last decade of specifically Croatia, it seems the trend for 2019 is for surrounding countries in the Adriatic such as Albania, Slovenia and Montenegro,” said Beyond Travel Sales and Marketing General Manager Bryce Crampton.
From this evolved the popular 13-day Grand Balkan tour which travels from Zagreb to Dubrovnik including stays in Slovenia, Croatia, Albania, Montenegro and Macedonia. Highlights include Bled in Slovenia’s Julian Alps, Plitvice Lakes in Croatia, the historic town of Mostar and Europe’s southernmost fjord in Montenegro.
Priced from $2,800 per person twin share, there are seven departures between May and September for 2019.
There is also a full selection of private tours and city stays available throughout these regions including a three-day “Spotlight on Lake Bled” package with transfers, choice of hotel, daily breakfast and privately guided Bled tour from $595 per person twin share.
