Product Description

Six Balkan Countries – Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro, Kosovo & Albania

The Via Dinarica is the world’s newest long-distance trail extending almost 2,000 kilometres from Slovenia to Albania.

Join our Balkan’s expert Jos Bauk, with his team of handpicked, expert local leaders, on this unique and amazing journey. Find places in Europe that are not crowded, leave the crowds behind and join us on this especially designed trip exclusive to The Peregrine Travel Centre WA

Concentrating on “The White Trail”, following the spine of the Dinaric Alps, we traverse high shepherd trails, summit high mountain peaks soaring above spectacular shimmering lakes and view turquoise rivers surrounded by dense, ancient forest.
Taking in the highlights of one of Europe’s least explored and most bio-diverse mountain ranges, this adventure also explores cultural highlights as we peek in to an old world Europe.
Strategically located at the crossroads between Asia and Western Europe, the Balkan region has known its share of conflict and conquest over the centuries. Despite, and maybe because, of this the Balkan people are a warm and truly welcoming people with a unique culture.
Peregrine Travel Centre Perth was the first company in the world to run an itinerary of this length and nature in 2016 and again in 2018, with this experience, we believe we have further improved what is a unique itinerary.
