TOUR DATES: July 4 – July 13, 2019
Unlike any other tour to Bosnia & Croatia, our journey to the “Land of Blood and Honey” will introduce you to the unique ecosystem of the Balkan Islands through our extensive network of local experts. Designed by Bosnian photojournalist and TED Fellow, Ziya Gafic, and National Geographic Explorer, Aziz Abu Sarah, this tour is all about meeting the most interesting people leading the most innovative organizations. Gafic and Abu Sarah will lead you through the historical cities of Sarajevo, Mostar, Srebrenica and Dubrovnik while connecting you to religious and cultural activists, storytellers and artists.
On this tour, we will:
- Explore the historical cities of Sarajevo, Mostar, Počitelj, Blagaj and Dubrovnik
- Visit UNESCO Heritage sites
- Visit the town of Srebrenica, site of the first act of genocide on European soil since the Holocaust
- Discover in-depth perspectives of the Bosnian war
- Experience the breadth of Croatian cuisine (According to Anthony Bourdain, Croatia hosts the best pasta dish which takes 12 hours to prepare.)
- Enjoy island exploration with time to relax on the beach
Winston Churchill once said that the Balkans produce more history than the world can digest. Bosnia and Croatia are the heart and soul of the Balkans.
