There are not many cities like Dubrovnik. You may have heard that Croatia is heating up as a tourist destination — a Balkan country just across the Adriatic Sea from Italy's boot. There are lots of great places in Croatia, but Dubrovnik is really something special, and we want to bring people together in this old-and-new city.This is a city that welcomes digital nomads and remote workers. One week — accommodations provided, coworking community provided, opening and closing dinners provided, and optional day-trip events provided (we hope you decide to go!) Let's talk about something that's really special about Dubrovnik: The Old Town. It really is an insanely well-preserved medieval fortress. You can traipse down the cobblestone streets, it's like taking a time machine to 200... or even 400 years ago. There's a reason the showrunners at HBO chose this city as the setting for the fictional "King's Landing" in Game of Thrones. It really is fantastic-al. But there's lot's more going on, including great restaurants, great hikes, great city life and all kinds of opportunities to experience a Slavic/Balkan culture up close. This is a week you are not going to forget that will not only give you a taste of Dubrovnik, but enough ideas to make this a launching pad for further European travels. Did we mention we will travel just under two hours away to a different country!! Underrated, best-kept-secret-that-won't-be-secret-for-long, the Bay of Kotor in Montenegro is SERIOUSLY beautiful. Imagine a bay nestled in between majestic mountains. The kind of thing you expect to see in, like, Norway (where they call it a 'fjord'), or Hong Kong, or Vancouver — but in this case, it's sitting right there on the Adriatic coast. That's Kotor in nearby Montenegro. We're so excited to bring a group together for an UNFORGETTABLE week. Make this a launching pad for European travels, lifelong friends and connections, and adventures in a seriously up-and-coming Mediterranean city.
We will take you on a journey around a medieval fort town — the Old Town of Dubrovnik — which has stood the test of time and is now one of the most iconic sites on the Adriatic and in the entire Mediterranean.
Take a short one-hour drive with the group to a different country — Montenegro. The Bay of Kotor is a "fjord on the Mediterranean" and an absolutely underrated gem in the area. Explore the cities of Kotor, the Kotor Old Town after sipping coffee and cappuccinos in the seaside harbor town of Perast.
The Elaphite or Elaphiti islands are a small archipelago northwest of Dubrovnik. Sail out on a boat with lunch and drinks included for a nautical tour that takes you away from the mainland and in and around magical islands.
