Gap Year Festival Goer

Start off your exploration of Europe's biggest and best festivals in London, because really, where better? From here you can start your gap year by exploring this phenomenal capital city and use it as a launch point for your travels. Brilliantly connected and served by a fantastic international rail service it's ideal.

We've included an FlexiTrip pass on this one, so you know you can travel around Europe flexibly, comfortably and easily. This is a hop-on hop-off bus pass around Europe, so you can really take your time and make sure you see everything you want to between the different festivals we've got lined up for you.

Start off by casually making your way down through Europe to La Tomatina, where you'll see more tomatoes than you ever thought possible and get stuck into the world's biggest food fight! Once you've recovered and can stand the sight of a tomato again, pick up that hop-on hop-off bus again and work your way through Central Europe to Oktoberfest and get ready for some steins. Munich isn't just famous for this, but really, there's only one reason you'd go in October!

One little twist to the usual route here, for Halloween where better to spend it than in Romania and Hungary, hanging with Count Dracula (see what we did there?) for this spookiest of festivals. Follow Dracula's trail past castles, fortified churches, mountain hangouts and beautiful little rural villages where things haven't changed for hundreds of years as well as seeing the beautiful, divided city of Budapest and its world famous baths and spas.

Finally, continue your adventure around Europe from here, head back West to Paris and Amsterdam for Christmas, head north back into Germany and Poland or even head back South to Italy and Spain to soak up some more sun before winter comes!

Whatever you want to do, you've got complete flexibility and a huge range of places to go.
