Potential return trip to Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina

Jump to last reply

I've been to all three countries before and am considering a return trip to see more, as soon as this spring perhaps. Most likely I'll be flying into Amsterdam initially so have to get down to and from the Balkans from/to there.

On my previous visit to Croatia, I saw Zagreb, Plitvice, Split, and Dubrovnik. I missed Istria, so this time I'm thinking of starting there (from Ljubljana), renting a car, and driving down into Dalmatia and then over into BiH and up to Sarajevo, then back to Zagreb to fly out.

I'm most interested in feedback on the Bosnia section - I drove to Mostar last time so I have half and idea what the drive is up to that point. It's hard to gauge driving distances - how much to drive per day. I know it's very hilly on the drive from Mostar to Sarajevo (I've read Julia_t's trip report among others.) I hate having to do long drives but it seems like the most practical way.

Here's the itinerary I've thrown together for 15 nights in late April-Early May that is one possibility on an award ticket:

Fly AMS to Venice, bus to Ljubljana

Ljubljana (3 nights) - day trips to Kamnik, perhaps elsewhere (I loved Ljubljana)

Train to Rijeka - pick up car? Or maybe bus down via Koper, pick up car somewhere in Croatia

Rovinj (3 nights) - explore Istria by car
Rab (1 night)
Zadar (2 nights)

Drive to Krka National Park, spend a few hours there.

Sibinek (1 night)

Drive to Sarajevo (3-6 hours it sounds like, including a few stops)

Sarajevo (2 nights)
Travnik (1 night)
Jajce (1 night)

I think that's 14 nights and I'll probably have 15, so I might add one somewhere...

Drive back to Zagreb
Fly Zagreb-AMS at 16:10 (so leaving Jajce in the morning should give me plenty of time)

Thoughts? I know this is before tourist season - but any idea how good of a time late April/Early May might be in Croatia on the northern coast? I'm expecting rain in Ljubljana...
