Please Help with Balkans Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are happily anticipating our fourth trip to the Balkans next year. We know the challenges; difficulties taking rental cars across borders, mountains (I hate mountain driving), lack of trains, and generally just not being able to get from point A to point B as easily as in other parts of Europe. The big difference this time is that we’ll visit more countries and cross more borders than we have in the past. The one trip where we crossed a few borders we had a borrowed car with Kosovo plates; chances are we’ll have a rental car this time.

I’d love those of you who have spent time in this part of the world to help with the itinerary. I’m thinking it might look something like this (I haven’t determined the number of days in each place yet):

Fly from the NY to Ljubliana. Quick visit to Lake Bled; train to Zagreb
Drive to Plitvice, Rovinj then down the coast
Drive to Sarajevo and back, ending in Dubrovnik
DBV down the coast of Montenegro into Albania
Visit Tirana, Berat and drive down to Sarande
Drive (or fly from Tirana) to Prishtina, Kosovo
Prishtina to NY

I think we’re okay with a rental car all the way to Albania, but don’t know of any rental car company which will allow us to take a car into Albania. This may be more of a Lonely Planet Thorntree question, but as a faithful Fodorite, I wanted to start here. Any ideas?

One last question, is a full three weeks enough for this itinerary? I’d hate to give up anything, but I also want to be realistic. Thanks in advance for your help!
