Check in at Belfast International airport for your afternoon flight to Dubrovnik. On arrival, you will take the short journey into Bosnia and Herzegovina and your hotel for the next four nights.

Depart this morning travelling through the Neretva Valley which leads to Mostar. The historic city is architecturally remarkable with its Ottoman style houses and its old bridge, Stari Most. Join your local guide for a tour of the UNESCO world heritage site  – lunch included. Later in the day, return to your hotel for dinner.

Day 5
This morning you will cross the border into Montenegro, visiting the Bay of Kotor, the largest Adriatic Fjord and acclaimed by many for its scenic beauty.
