Enduring, eclectic, endlessly appealing – Europe is easy to explore and impossible to forget.

Trying to decide between hiking through rugged wilderness, touring 13th-century churches, and sipping wine in the sun? In Europe you can do it all and do it well. While it might be compact in size, this continent is packed full of remarkably diverse cultures, breathtaking landscapes, and delicious cuisines – and they’re all only a short flight or train ride away from each other. The walkable ruins of Italy will transport you back to a time when the Romans ruled an empire. Sweden’s indulgent national dishes will have your tastebuds begging for more. The natural beauty found in Scotland is guaranteed to ignite the mythical side of your imagination. And that’s only the beginning. From the breezy Mediterranean to the chilly Baltics, our European tours have something for every traveller.

Highlights of Europe

Colourful houses of the Cinque Terre

Explore the Cinque Terre

A collection of five pastel-painted villages and terraced vineyards built into rugged seaside cliffs, the Cinque Terre is a romantic introduction to the Italian Riviera. Once only accessible by the 12-kilometre pathway that links them together, a train line has made the medieval towns easier to explore in a single day.

Northern Lights reflected over lake in Iceland

Look up at the Northern Lights

The dancing, multi-coloured lights of the Aurora Borealis are a mesmerising natural phenomenon, and one of the best places to see it is the high northern hemisphere. Leave the city lights in the rear-view mirror and grab a front-row seat for a chance to catch Mother Nature putting on a dazzling show.

Traveller swims in the waters of the Cyclades in Greece

Island-hop in the Mediterranean

Relax on deserted beaches and dive into crystal-clear water – sailing the small islands of Greece is the perfect introduction to life on the Cyclades. Discover islands that resemble Greece as it was 30 years ago as you feast on sumptuous seafood in oceanfront tavernas and soak up sublime sunsets from the deck of your yacht.

Fresh strawberries at a Spanish market

Shop at the source

The celebrated Mercado de Abastos (Abastos Market) in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, is the perfect place to pick up some fresh produce or classic Galician dishes like empanadas. You can grab cheese and fruit for a picnic or have a fresh-caught centolo (spider crab) or navalla (razor clam) cooked to order.

Cycle group stopped by Lake Bled, Slovenia

A traveller enjoying the view of Cappadocia from a hot air balloon

Marvel at dreamy views

Littered with fairy chimneys, ancient underground cities and cliff-carved dwellings, the landscapes of Cappadocia in Turkey are a truly unforgettable sight. Jump in a hot air balloon for a bird's-eye view and marvel at how the sunrise illuminates the skyline. Even if you'd prefer not to take a flight, it's worth waking up early to see the sky dotted with dozens of hot air balloons.

Europe Tour Reviews

What to see in 7-10 days in Europe

Be selective – focus on one or two countries and dive in. Gorgeous scenery, mouth-watering cuisine and photogenic architecture make destinations like Switzerland and Portugal great choices for short journeys. If you’re looking for something offbeat, many countries in Eastern Europe have a diverse blend of post-Soviet cities, traditional villages and primeval forest within easy driving distance of each other.

Prefer mountains to medieval churches? Iceland is hard to beat for packing a lot of natural wonders into a short amount of time. You can see the country’s spectacular waterfalls, geysers, glaciers, icebergs and fjords in a week on tour, with a few days spare to drop in on tiny fishing villages for hot meals and quirky history lessons along the way.

What to see in 3 weeks in Europe

Go a little deeper with enough time to get a feel for a region. You could see the essentials of Russia, then finish up with a taste of the Baltics. Or maybe you’d prefer to indulge in the delights of a tour through Iberia? Why not begin in Madrid, then skate around the coast of Portugal before boarding a short flight to access Spain’s autonomous north.

Looking for more of a sightseeing and sunbathing vibe? A fortnight-long holiday is the perfect length for a European cruise. You could relax on Croatia’s beautiful islands and disembark in Dubrovnik, refreshed and with enough time to stretch your legs on the hills of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

What to see in 6 weeks in Europe

Never been to Europe and want an introduction to the iconic cities the continent is known for? It’s totally possible to see dozens of destinations – and see them well – in six weeks. Or maybe you’d prefer to immerse yourself fully in one place and go deeper than the average traveller. You could see everything from the ancient ruins of Pompeii to the mafia legacy of Palermo on a comprehensive tour through Italy – from the top of the boot to the bottom of the ball it’s kicking – in four weeks.

Trips on or before 31 December 2022

If your Intrepid trip starts on or before 31 December 2022, you must provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.

If you are unable to be vaccinated for medical reasons, you may apply for an exemption. Exemptions will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. To apply, you must provide a medical certificate from a medical professional. 

Children under 18 are exempt. Children aged between 5 and 17 years old must provide proof of either vaccination, recovery or a negative COVID-19 test.

Trips from 1 January 2023 onwards

From 1 January 2023, Intrepid will no longer require travellers to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 (excluding all Polar trips and select adventure cruises).

However, we continue to strongly recommend that all Intrepid travellers and leaders get vaccinated to protect themselves and others.

Specific proof of testing or vaccination may still be required by your destination or airline. Please ensure you check travel and entry requirements carefully.

Whether or not you need a visa to travel to European countries largely depends on the nationality on your passport and whether the country you're travelling to is part of the Schengen Agreement. This agreement sees 26 European countries offer visa-free travel to nationals from 60 other countries including Australia, the United States, Canada, Japan, and the United Kingdom. 

To determine whether the country you're travelling to requires a visa, head to the Schengen Visa's information website.

You shouldn't have a problem using your mobile phone while travelling throughout Europe, however, your international data roaming will need to be activated in order to connect to the internet or send messages (unless you connect to the local wifi).
