Your family will have time to experience the best of Central Europe in a relaxed paced, and travel to destinations on a road less travelled.
As there are potholes and cobblestones in many European cities, it's recommended that you and your family leave any wheelie bags/cases at home and bring a backpack instead. As this is an eight-day trip, a large backpack should be enough to carry all of your belongings.
Summer temperatures can be very high in many of the regions visited (over 40°C/104°F), which can be uncomfortable. Ensure the whole family use sun protection, wear layers, and carry plenty of water because hydration is key, especially when you’re walking a lot.
Make sure you pack some sturdy and comfortable shoes for everyone as there can be a lot of walking around the towns, ruins, and walking trails of this area.
Just as a heads up before you book: this trip is new to our range this year. And while we have thoroughly researched every detail of the logistics, new destinations can sometimes throw us some unexpected surprises. More often than not, it’ll be a great surprise. But every now and again there might be a hiccup. We like to think that’s what puts the ‘adventure’ in ‘adventure travel’.
