Europe active adventure tours

Off the beaten path thrills with an old-world backdrop…

Europe is more than just the famous stuff you read about in guidebooks. It's about pedalling past timeworn farms in Slovenia's Julian Alps, kayaking over a Byzantine metropolis in the Turkish Mediterranean and hiking to a 17th-century mountain castle fueled by homemade Dalmatian brandy in the belly. Even the glacier views from Switzerland's Bernina Express train seem thick with legend. We're all about finding those epic adventures that your friends back home haven't experienced... let alone heard of. Ready? Let's do it.
