Trek Description:

Embark on a week-long adventure in Croatia that seamlessly blends history with modern excitement. Our journey kicks off in the storied city of Dubrovnik, where we’ll stroll along the Old City Walls, soaking in its medieval charm and exploring iconic ‘Game of Thrones’ landmarks. Next stop: the enchanting island of Hvar, a paradise boasting lively beaches and vibrant nightlife. Then, it’s off to Split, Croatia’s second-largest city, where medieval wonders await and a day at sea reveals nature’s hidden treasures, including the magical Blue Cave. You’ll have the option to bike around the city, sea kayak, or even cliff jump!
But hold on tight, because this isn’t your average trip. Last year’s MBA1s may have had their fun, but this year’s MTrek promises to dial it up a notch. This trip is not for the faint hearted; this journey is about sailing on a Catamaran, lounging on private beaches, kayaking beneath breathtaking sunsets, and partying like there’s no tomorrow. So, brace yourself for an adventure that might leave you sloshed from excess drinking (if that’s your choice), but one that guarantees moments of pure indulgence with Rakija, dancing to Kolo rhythms, and shouting out, “Hrvatska, dolazimo!”

We’re a work hard, play hard type of group, and we can’t wait to start off the year strong with you in Croatia!

Why should you join my trek?
Where shall I begin?! Sid is my name. Common, yes. But my dance moves are not! You should join because you want to see the iconic sets of GoT with someone who has not watched the series! Lol. We are excited to host you this summer and can’t wait for all of you start off your MBA journey on the right note.
