Europe Tours & Adventures

Guided backpacker experiences in Europe

It’s really quite amazing how much culture and scenery Europe manages to cram into its modest borders – famous cities, iconic sights, diverse and dramatic landscapes, and a long, fascinating history. Backpacker tours in Europe range from rambling bus journeys that might include 10 different countries or more, to single day city tours in thrilling metropolises like Rome in Italy, Paris in France, and Madrid in Spain.

The best thing about taking a tour in Europe is that, regardless of where you go on the continent, you won’t have to pay for a ticket to the other side of the world and sit on a plane for 36 hours before you can start having fun. Many of the tours we have available depart from London – a couple of hours and the fun can begin!

The other best thing (we believe there can be two) is that everything in Europe is so close together that you can pack so much into a short trip. You might spend all your time in Germany, exploring in depth and becoming intimately acquainted, or choose a tour that also takes in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Switzerland.

Articles and advice about budget travel in Europe


Touring Europe

Roughly, you can divide Europe up into four regions: Western Europe covers the well-known destinations already mentioned above, as well as lesser-known gems like Andorra and Luxembourg; Eastern Europe includes Russia, Poland, Slovenia, and Croatia; Northern Europe consists largely of Scandinavia – Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland – as well as countries like Iceland and Lithuania; Southern Europe is where the sun lives, with the likes of Italy, Greece, Malta, and more.

The best approach for backpacking in Europe is to pick a single region and find a tour that best covers what you want to see there – whether that be cities and nightlife, cultural experiences, active adventures, festivals, or something else entirely. If you try to see too much of Europe at once, you’ll end up spending all your time travelling and not actually enjoying it.

Have a look at the Europe travel experiences we offer, and find the one that’s right for you. Europe is on your doorstep. Make the most of it!
