The Right Stuff

Every traveler has their place (or places) they want to visit in Europe. But whether you prefer snowkiting in Norway or relaxing in the natural hot springs of Hungary, discovering fortresses in San Marino or photographing Dutch windmills in The Netherlands, find the activities and destinations you’ve dreamed of by knowing what style of vacation appeals to you.

If ice fishing, dog sledding, or snowmobiling piques your interest, an active vacation in Scandinavia is a must. Engaging the muscles and heart might fuel your ideal experience, but there’s even more outdoor adventure than ski resorts and snowshoeing in the Alps. You can also sail, paddle, float and surf under the sun on the shores of the Adriatic, or along the beautiful blue waters of Turkey.

Camping and backpacking are popular ways to see Europe for less. Get closer to seldom-seen areas, like along the Via Alpina. Hike through eight Alpine countries and traverse the principal chain of the Alps. Or skip the walking and get a rail pass to follow the trails of steel throughout the continent.

Luxurious tastes are worth indulging in Europe. Boutique shopping in Paris and Rome lead to exquisite fine dining in Copenhagen and Croatia. Five-star hotels abound on the continent where resort spa treatments were invented. Amsterdam and Montenegro know how to pamper and treat their guests. They’ve done it for centuries.

A honeymoon in Europe perfectly balances seclusion and legendary romance. The chateaux of Southern France, along with delicious red wine, attract couples year-round. Or visit the island of Cyprus, legendary birthplace of Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Stroll hand in hand along the canals of Venice before stepping aboard a legendary gondola ride. Bask in the splendor of one of central Europe’s intriguing cities, like Prague, and enjoy boutique shopping and a sightseeing cruise on the Vltava. Or relax and be together while soaking in the soothing thermal baths and spas in Budapest.

But Europe’s not just for couples. From small children to older adults, there’s a range of activities and interests for everyone in your family. The past comes alive in countless museums of art and history, like the Berlin Museum Island or the Guggenheim in Bilbao. Visit Killarney National Park in Ireland for lake-studded mountains and wild red deer or place your bets at the Monte Carlo Casino in Monaco. And don’t forget the awe-inspiring castles and fortresses of Germany, Romania, Portugal and many more.

So, what’s the right stuff for you? Start by knowing your travel style and then see where your European vacation takes you.


Exploring the Rural Wonders of Europe

Away from the excitement of cities like Paris, Barcelona and Florence is a place a little quieter. It’s somewhere you can stretch out your legs and breathe in the freshest air in Europe. It’s the European countryside and farms. Nearly every country is speckled with picturesque fields, bountiful farmlands and sweet serenity. Whether your heart and soul is drawn to farmlands or you want your vacation to go beyond the tourist cities, the European countryside is where you belong.


Hidden Gems in Spring

Spring is the perfect time to be in Europe. The sun comes out, the days get longer and all the plants begin flowering. Itʼs also the perfect time to get away from busy European capitals and enjoy the out of the way secret locations and green spaces of the world. Make your way to Belgium for the Greenhouses of the Royal Palace at Laeken, Brussels. Beauty can be found at the Winter Garden in both its plant life and Art Nouveau architecture; the massive greenhouses with their ironwork frames are home to many rare and beautiful plants. They cover six acres of striking rotundas, domes and galleries. Twenty full-time gardeners meticulously tend this impressive collection.
