Heading to Europe and soaking up the sun on a beach or touring a capital city are popular ways to spend some time abroad and can be done pretty easily. However, there's much more to Europe than that! Europe is a continent of amazing countries and great experiences, some of which can only be experienced on an Explore adventure. To give you an idea of what you could be doing this summer, we've put together a few of our favourite tours here, all of which are uniquely Explore and won't be found anywhere else!
Above the Arctic Circle
Spend time in the wild and remote beauty of Arctic Norway, Sweden and Finland. Journeying through these countries for two weeks, the trip takes in Nord Kapp – the most northerly point in Europe, the spectacular Lofoten Islands and walks in the Lappish Fells. You’ll also have the chance to go whale watching and perhaps spot the elusive ‘midnight sun’. With nearly all meals included, this tour represents excellent value for money and only Explore can bring you such a comprehensive tour of this region at such a great price!
Walking among the Tramuntana in Mallorca is superb. You’ll take a dramatic train and tram ride from the capital Palma and the fine mountain scenery is a world away from the crowded Costas. However, if you want to walk coast to coast across the entire Tramuntana range, travelling with Explore is the only way to do that!
Village Folklore and Danube Delta
Everyone's heard of Transylvania, but how many people have actually been there? More importantly, how many people know it's in Romania? Of course, here at Explore we know this and we also know what else Romania has to offer, from beautiful churches to the Danube Delta. If you'd like to visit the country, then you've come to the right place as no other adventure company offers tours to this beautiful part of Eastern Europe.
Pedalling in Poland
Poland as a holiday destination is growing in popularity, with more and more people taking weekend breaks in Krakow. But there's more to the country than the capital – join us on the only small group tour which features a gentle cycling route through traditional rural villages and the spectacular Dunajec Gorge.
Sicilian Volcano Hike
Ever wanted to trek to the top of Etna? Or Stromboli? Or how about Vulcano? No problem, easily done. But how about hiking to the top of all three of these active volcanoes in the space of a week? Our Sicilian Volcano Hike adventure offers just that, alongside time to relax and enjoy the lively Sicilian social scene.
