More About Western Europe
Europe Group Tours by Adventures Abroad: Lands as old as time with far flung castles, wide reaching cultures, dramatic landscapes, and culinary masterpieces that go back generations, a trip on one of our guided European tours is unforgettable.
With a landmass larger than the United States of America, and with fifty sovereign states, the hardest part in looking at our Europe group tours is narrowing where you would like to go.
Western Europe is home to some of the world's most iconic sights and buildings. Architectural wonders include the Parthenon in Athens, Greece, the birthplace of democracy; the Colosseum of Rome or St Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, head of the Catholic world; Buckingham Palace in London sits alongside countless historically important buildings, built before and after the great fire of London; the Eiffel Tower's glow is seen from across the city, while museums such as the Louvre in Paris, Guggenheim in Bilbao, Prado in Madrid are among just a few of thousands of galleries housing the great masterpieces of our time.
Prehistoric marvels aren't limited to the well-known Stonehenge in England or Hagar Qim and Ggantija in Malta. Caves with paintings that date back up to 40,000 years can be found across Europe, in Spain and France notably.
Perhaps it is the cuisine on our Europe group tours that is best to describe. The herring in the Netherlands, a bratwurst in Germany, goulash in Hungary, beer in Belgium, wine in Italy or France, moussaka in Greece, haggis in Scotland, Irish stew, Polish pierogies, Swiss cheese fondue, Swedish meatballs, potica in Slovenia, the list could continue forever.
Our Europe group tours have the day to explore and the night to understand local culture with evening meals in local restaurants eating local fare.
To work up an appetite, we include mild to moderate activity as described in our various activity level guides to see the landscapes that make Europe so diverse. Our Europe group tours also explore by all types of transportation.
By sea, we explore the tumbling waterfalls and small fishing villages found in the Norwegian fjords down to the idyllic blue waters of the Greek Isles. Our train journeys take us over scenic mountain passes in the Alps through to the vineyard-lined hillsides of Tuscany.
We count waterfalls while walking on boardwalks across Plitvice National Park in Croatia, and get windswept in the High Tatras on the Poland-Slovakia border. We see great rivers such as the Danube, Rhine or Seine, and mountains such as the Alps, Pyrenees and Carpathian.
Our Europe group tours are a must for everyone, just where to go first is the question.
