Balkan Holidays has issued a new programme of special interest holidays to Central and Eastern Europe for 2016 featuring Macedonia as a new destination and visiting 12 different countries in total.

The new ‘Discovery’ brochure offers Lakes and Mountains, Escorted Tours, River and Adriatic Cruises, Walking and Golf Holidays.

Two river cruises on the Danube, plus walking tours to the Dubrovnik Islands and Julian Alps, are all new tours from the operator for next year.

Other highlights include six coach tours, visiting ten countries, including 'The Best of the Balkans' tour; four Adriatic Cruises in Croatia; two new destinations - Lake Ohrid in Macedonia and Plitvice Lakes in Croatia, both popular UNESCO World Heritage sites; Croatia Island Hopping from Dubrovnik or Split; golfing breaks in Slovenia and Bulgaria; Bulgarian Mountains discovery packages; a selection of two-centre, tailor made holiday combinations in most countries; added-value items including free excursions, free walking tours and hotel deals; scheduled and low-cost flights from 17 UK airports; and three-, seven-, ten-, 11- and 14-night packaged stays and tailor-made holidays.

The company's sales and marketing manager, Chris Rand, said: “We have launched this brochure due to a high demand for special interest holidays to the Balkans region, and we have taken the popular cruises, tours and walking holidays, from our existing summer programme and added many new itineraries, plus Macedonia as a new destination.”

The operator will continue to offer beach holidays, accommodation-only, flight-only, spa and wellness holidays, city breaks and tailor-made holidays in the separate summer 2016 second edition brochure to Bulgaria, Croatia, Montenegro and Slovenia.

This is in addition to the winter ski and snowboard holidays programme to Bulgaria, Slovenia and Romania. A seven-night stay in Lake Ohrid, Macedonia leads in at £448 per person, including flights from Luton, transfers and half-board accommodation at the three-star plus Hotel Lebed.
