Join us on a spectacular journey where we hike the best sections of the Via Dinarica through the Balkan countries of  Croatia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Montenegro and Albania.
Starting in Split, where you have time to explore Diocletian's Palace and the surrounding Old Town, we journey into Bosnia-Herzegovina for a sunset and night hike in the Dinaric Alps of Blidinje Nature Park.  If the weather cooperates the stargazing will be phenomenal.
Our next hike is relatively easy as we hike up Cincar Mountain for a visit with the herds of wild horses.
Next we explore the terrific alpine scenery of the Bjelašnica Mountain area, walking through Bosnia's highest village, Lukomir, known for its centuries old stone houses and traditional dress.  Here you get to share a lunch and the famous Bosnian coffee with the local people.
Spend some time in Sarajevo before a scenic drive into Montenegro.  Here we'll hike into Durmitor National Park, a park famous for its scenic rivers and beautifully coloured glacial lakes.  The hike here, going by a spectacular viewpoint overlooking Tara Canyon, will be one of the highlights of the trip.
Travelling on to a small village on the border of Albania, from where we'll gain some significant altitude as we hike towards Karanfili peaks.  Then, after crossing into Albania, it is time for our final hike, this time on the Valbona-Theth hiking trail.  Expect some rewarding vistas towards the snow-capped Albanian Alps.  
Following a scenic ferry ride to Koman we'll travel to Tirana by minibus, where your last evening can be spent at your leisure, reflecting on a fantastic hiking holiday in the Balkans.
