Europe in Summer

Throughout the summer, Europe basks in sunshine. Across the continent, leisurely days are best spent by the beach or enjoying an alfresco lunch, or two. There is nothing we love more than a week on the Med but look further afield, to the crystal clear waters of the Dalmatian Coast, to the majestic Alps or to the endless days of Scandinavia for a European escape that will tick the boxes for a romantic escape, an active break or a family getaway.

For Families

The Alps

The Alps are not just for winter. For active families, this wonderful mountain range provides the perfect backdrop for a holiday jam-packed with outdoor activities. From discovering the Dolomites on two wheels, to hiking in France, there is so much to discover on an Alpine Summer itinerary. Pair the great outdoors with a city break in Venice for a dose of culture, or choose to relax on the shores of Lake Garda for the ultimate twin centre adventure with the kids in tow.

Norway

Norway is simply one of the most dramatically beautiful countries on earth. It is a place where you need to get out and about and get in tune with your wild-side - in the summer climb vast craggy mountains to see the most amazing views. Try your hand at mountain-biking or even white water rafting for an action-packed holiday that you'll never forget.

Croatia

Croatia’s stunning coastline is best explored during the summer months, when sunny days are perfect for exploring. Take to the sparkling blue waters on board a private yacht visiting traditional fishing villages, bustling towns and secluded coves as you hop between Croatia’s beautiful islands or make your way inland where the scenery is equally as enchanting. Made up of forests, mountains and waterfalls it’s a great place for hiking, or simply relaxing and soaking up the natural surroundings.

For Couples

Provence

The south of France is a magical destination throughout the year. Swathed in hues of yellows, greens and purples, Provence is a delight to discover during a summer holiday. Hike through the less trodden trail of Provence through beautiful landscapes, terraced vineyards, quaint enchanting French villages and lush forests for the ultimate provençale escape that is undeniably romantic.

Greece

While Greece is renowned for its beautiful beaches, picturesque islands and whitewashed villages, its culinary scene is a huge draw, tempting visitors with home-grown olives, traditional pastries and delicious sweet treats. This gourmet itinerary takes you from Athens to Crete and Santorini, with enough tastings, market visits and cooking classes to satisfy your appetite. Soak up the culture and traditions of Greece as you taste your way around this foodie paradise.

Iceland

Although many people think of Iceland as a winter destination, this enchanting country is just as magical during the summer months. Long days mean there’s plenty of time to get off the beaten track and discover more of Iceland under the never-setting Midnight Sun. Explore the charming Snaefellsnes Peninsula, an unspoilt region home to dramatic scenery and traditional fishing villages, where you can try Icelandic horse riding or search for whales off the dramatic coastline.
