Bike, hike, stay in quaint inns, fairy tale castles or medieval towns. Indulge in the galleries with the masterpieces of Picasso, Di Vinci and Van Gogh …..this is Europe at its best.
Greece not only the cradle of western civilization but also a source of inspiration for many travellers is a treasure chest of archaeological and historical gems and features breathtaking landscapes.
Italy offers visitors a feast for the senses in the way of flavours, colours, smells and of course the romance that surrounds it.
From the Costa del Sol to the Canary Islands, from the sun to the sea, Spain offers something for every taste and budget.
France has it all with beautiful valleys, sun drenched coasts, culinary and wine-making traditions, the Mona Lisa at the Louvre, Paris’s world famous museum and don’t forget a climb up the Eiffel Tower.
Many of us think we already know Ireland. However, its visitors are always pleasantly surprised. Indeed, there is no one “Emerald Isle” as such, but rather two Irelands with distinct characteristics and unique destinies that live side by side and share a common land.

Top Ten Europe Adventure Travel Holiday Ideas
Czech Republic- Take off on foot and follow the Royal Way Trail in Prague, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We recommend starting at the castle and doing the route backwards, moving downhill rather than up and ending in the Old Town area where you can relax at a nice cafe for a drink or bite to eat.
England – Climb the steps in the Beauchamp Tower (Tower of London) where some of the most important prisoners were housed. Built almost 900 years ago at the request of William the Conqueror and originally a royal palace it served as a prison and place of torture and execution.
France – Bike through the vineyards of the Bordeaux, the largest wine region on earth and sample wine from the many 9000+ producers. Here you can enrol in a wine course or spend a night or two at one of the many chateaus scattered throughout this region and enjoy the restaurants that prepare food to showcase its wine.
Germany – Separating East from West Berlin for 25 years the Berlin Wall is slowly fading back into modern Berlin. While sections of the wall still exist, they continue to be under threat of ongoing development projects. In some places, markers on the ground provide a reminder of what was once there and in other areas not a trace exists. 136 people died trying to escape the east for a better life in West Germany.
Italy – Meander along the Grand Canal by gondola and take a journey through Venetian history. This great road of water is the most beautiful street in Venice. The atmosphere is absolutely unforgettable as the splendour of the Grand Canal is unparalleled. The Grand Canal does not go in a straight line but flows as though it were a woman’s body in curves.
Madeira – Experience sliding up to 48km per hour on a toboggan through narrow winding streets from Monte to Funchal. These two-seater wicker sledges glide on wooden runners, pushed and steered by two men traditionally dressed in white cotton clothes and a straw hat, using their rubber-soled boots as brakes.
Netherlands – With 1,000-plus bridges to cross and amazing architecture to photograph, a self guided walking tour of Amsterdam is a must. Grab a map at one of the Amsterdam Tourist Offices and don’t miss the chance to experience Anne Frank’s House, the Van Gogh Museum and a Canal Cruise.
Russia – Take the Trans-Siberian Railway, one of the most famous of the world’s great train journeys, a six-day trip covering 5,869 miles (9,446km) and eight time zones, from Moscow in Europe to Vladivostok on the Asian Pacific Coast. It is the longest continuous railway on earth and is the best way to experience the vast expanse of Russia, passing small isolated farmhouses and pastoral lands, churches and brightly painted log-cabin settlements, rolling hills and forests, steppes, rivers and lakes.
Spain – Lace up your hiking boots and set out on an unforgettable pilgrimage to the Spanish holy city of Santiago de Compostela. The same way that thousands of pilgrims have done before you.
Turkey – Bargain for souvenirs or purchase a handmade carpet at the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul. The oldest and largest covered bazaar in the world with 64 streets, 4 fountains, 2 mosques, 22 gates, tens of cafes, a police station and nearly 5000 shops. Just remember where there are tourists there are pick pockets….. so keep an eye out.
