Croatia Truffle Festival (ECTF)
Prized by epicureans for their flavour and scarcity, the elusive truffle is the rock star of the fungus world. And nobody celebrates this most exalted of tubers quite like Croatia, home to the annual Truffle Days Festival. Beginning on the island of Cres, our adventure here will introduce you to the idyllic seaside communities of Croatia’s Adriatic Coast and let you partake in a genuine truffle hunt with a professional tartufalo before delivering you to the culinary tuberpalooza itself in Livade. Don’t forget to pack your appetite. (In fact, pack a spare, just in case.)
Highlights: Sampling local delicacies at the world-famous Truffle Days Festival in Livade, tasting fresh olive oil in Cres, searching for truffles with a professional tartufalo, experiencing Groznjan's thriving art scene, visiting medieval Hum- the world’s smallest town.
This epic cross-European adventure offers an intriguing combination of Central Europe's castles and romantic squares with the Balkan's own historic towns and wondrous landscapes.

With 29 days devoted to this journey, this is your chance to discover what still feels like a well-kept secret.
Highlights: Wandering beautiful medieval cities, hiking in the Carpathian Mountains, sipping beer in Prague, kayaking the Bay of Kotor, exploring world-class museums, hiking to an undersea winery on the Dalmatian island of Hvar, marvelling at the ancient Roman palace of Diocletian in Split.
