All AdventureNEXT delegates are invited to experience some of the best of the Balkans on three- to five-day adventure itineraries in Macedonia and its Partner Destinations. The early-release adventures featured below offer delegates an opportunity to get “a taste” of the Balkans through activities offering a wide array of physical, cultural and nature-based experiences.
Explore the region through hiking, mountain biking, wine-making, walking ancient Roman sites, paragliding, picnicking with a monk, sailing or heading into the mountains to work with park rangers on a bear conservation project.
All adventure package prices listed include meals, accommodation, transportation, guide/escort and activities. You are welcome to select a Pre-AdventureNEXT Adventure AND a Post-AdventureNEXT Adventure; a selection of buyers and journalists will participate as fully hosted delegates.
ATTA anticipates adding additional PRE and POST adventures in the next few weeks when currently negotiated Destination Partnerships are finalized.
All PRE and POST Adventures are on a first-come, first-served basis and subject to change.
The deadline to sign up for an AdventureNEXT PRE or POST adventure is March 22, 2016.
You may anticipate the Day of Adventure (included for all delegates) to be released towards the end of March 2016
Sorry, there are no adventures with these parameters
