The Balkan region is for many still a book with seven seals. Deep gorges, wide swamps, dense forests - wild and pristine are these sparkling natural jewels. Here are some of the last primeval forests in Europe. In Montenegro alone there are four national parks. In the north, the "Tara" has dug a 1,300 metre deep gorge into the Durmitor Mountains, creating the longest and deepest canyon in Europe.
It is also the largest bay on the Adriatic, the Boka Kotorska (Bay of Kotor), which is also the southernmost fjord in Europe. Not to forget the kindness and exemplary hospitality of the people of these Balkan countries, who create unforgettable moments in addition to this beautiful landscape.
Of course the famous "Jadranska Magistrala" the Croatian coastal road should not be missing on our tour. Close to the edge of the Velebit Mountains, the Magistrala squeezes along the coast. We will travel this "dream road" from Rijeka to Dubrovnik. The destination of the tour is the north of Greece with its famous "Meteora Monasteries".
Before we start the return journey with the ferry (Patras-Venice), we have a bathing day on the island "Levkada".
