Spring and its beautiful colors is the perfect time to avoid the heat and crowds of the summer months. Each of these suggestions head into hidden corners of Europe, allowing you to savour the authenticity of going off the beaten track, on foot, by bike or with the family.
Head north in the Netherlands or to the Yorkshire Wolds for the coolest cycling and quaintest villages, or trek into the wild mountains of Italy’s Valle d’Aosta or Portugal’s Serra da Estrela. Or try the lesser-known Alsace region of France and cycle the ‘Route des vins’ which oozes typical romantic charm. Families can enjoy a mini-trek through the Picos with their tricky teens and tweens too – there’s something for everyone this summer.
As all our offices round Europe are based in the heart of our local communities, it's always worth getting in touch with us if your heart is now set on an adventure you don't see listed. Quite often we can pull a few strings and pull off the last-minute impossible (not always, mind!) or we can certainly suggest a good alternative.
