Summer dream: find your extraordinary European adventure

The thought of grabbing a bag to explore parts of Europe this summer brings joy to almost every traveler’s heart. Even more so if your trip fuels some of your biggest passions like wine, trekking or photography. Whether you want to hike alpine meadows, taste seasonal Italian cuisine, or get your resting pulse to a happy place, we have European tours to match your interests.

Relax your mind and body

Sail away, sail away, sail away! Sure, it’s an Enya song, but it’s also a state of mind. Leave your worries behind as you enjoy the yachting life on the deeply soothing blue waters of coastal Croatia or the Greek islands. Want to go even deeper? Consider a wellness tour in Iceland’s otherworldly landscapes. Start your summer with serenity with black sand beach meditations, geothermal yoga by the lake and long warm baths in the Blue Lagoon.

Enjoy seasonal foods

Relaxing at a charming agriturismo, learning to cook Cretan cuisine and hiking to the birthplace of Nutella all sound like palate-pleasing ways to spend a summer. Whether you are a foodie or just really like to eat, you can get your fill of local flavors in the pastoral villages and vineyards of Tuscany, Crete and Piedmont. And don’t forget to try the truffles!

Capture lasting summer memories

A good photographer can find beauty in the everyday, but it’s much more fun to explore epic landscapes with your camera at the ready. Did you know that the word ‘picturesque’ was coined to describe Lake Bled and the Julian Alps in Slovenia? It’s not true, but it should be. If islands and volcanoes are more your jam, try training your lens on the spectacular eruptions of Mount Stromboli by boat in northern Sicily. Or lace up your hiking boots and take a photo tour of Iceland’s raging waterfalls, glaciers and black sand beaches.

Go and wander and wander… oh my!

We could explain the difference between walking, hiking and trekking, but you probably know if you like to travel long distances on foot. Spend eight days in northern Spain walking a scenic pilgrimage route through rustic villages and refueling with tasty local cuisine. Day trip from a central hub to see the best parts of eastern Iceland, including puffin colonies and smoking lava fields. Or kick it up several notches by hiking one of the world’s premier alpine routes through France and Italy. We bet they have cheese there too.
