What is the first thing that you do when you plan a vacation to Europe? Add London and Paris to your itinerary… While these two places are an integral part of this dreamy continent, and on the bucket list of every traveller, how would it be if you could explore the rest of Europe? This is your chance to plan an unconventional trip to Europe. Take a look at our brief list of destinations other than Paris and London that will woo you…
The southernmost tip of this wonderful continent, Sagres is an exotic, remote village in Portugal. Famous for the long stretches of soft sandy beaches, tiny islets in the waters and the majestic rocky cliffs overlooking the crashing waves of the sea, the best part of this town is that nothing beyond it is “Europe”! Forts, lighthouses and a few other monuments make for a great sightseeing tour, but nothing can beat the adventure that you can indulge in here. Hiking, cycling, beaching and most importantly surfing can be enjoyed. In fact, Sagres is one of the best surfing destinations of the country!
The heart of Europe is sure to be rich with food, adventure and nature. From snowcapped mountains and lush valleys, to breweries and music concerts, Austria will give you the best of everything. One offbeat fun activity to do here is a biking tour of various wineries and breweries. With delicious old as well as fresh brews to taste, this tour will most definitely make it to some of your best Europe experiences.
Greek Isles, Greece
A destination especially for all those looking to spend moments of blissful pleasure, Greek Isles are like tiny gems strewn across the Mediterranean. Narrow lanes and cobblestone pavements, bicycles and shoes, sun, beach and the waters… this is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway. You can also hire a boat and tour along all of the tiny islets. The view of the quaint town from the water is a wonderful sight to behold.
Western Norway, Norway
The fjords of Norway have always been on my bucket list. The idea of quietly sailing through the narrow glacier lakes with the most majestic mountain cliffs on either sights is something that is almost surreal. And what better place to experience this than Western Norway! Famous for having close to almost 1,190 fjords, these artworks of nature are no less than miracles.
Separating Europe and Asia with a mountainous barrier rich with biodiversity hotspots, Caucasus is heaven on earth. Mountain ranges extending till the horizon, tiny forts atop hillocks, strangers that you’ll call family and views that will leave you stunned. The best way to explore this UNESCO World Heritage is on horseback or by trekking.
