Our Balkan holidays collection allow you to witness a land of complex ethnic patterns and influences throughout this wedge-shaped area of eastern Europe, also known as the Balkan Peninsula. The Balkans stretch from Albania and the Adriatic Coast, through Bulgaria and mainland Greece, to parts of Romania and Turkey. Collectively this region, lesser-visited by western tourism, covers most of the former Yugoslavia, including Croatia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia & Herzegovina, Slovenia, Serbia and Kosovo.
In 1971, Regent Holidays became the first tour operator to offer holidays in Albania, back when the country was still under communist rule and tour groups had to cross the border on foot. Since then we have expanded to cover holidays to most of the Balkan countries, but our pioneering spirit still compels us to seek out the lesser-known national parks and explores remote mountain towns. Whether you want to island hop across Croatia's stunning islands, explore Serbia's best cities or find out why Albania's alp-sized mountains are Europe's last great adventure, we have a tour for you. If you can't decide on just one, why not to combine all three? Take one of our multi-country Balkan holidays.
