Europe is a vast and varied continent.
All across Europe's great expanse, cities are bursting with history, local people are preserving traditions whilst embracing the future, and the many cultures - both modern and ancient - are as diverse and fascinating as the landscapes. This is a continent that captures the imagination wherever you look - geysers, dramatic black beaches and basalt cliffs sculpt a fantastical terrain in its northern reaches in Iceland, while monasteries perch on fairy-tale hilltops above hardwood forests in the eastern lands of Georgia and Armenia. Whatever kind of tailor-made holiday you are after - whether that involves wintry mountain scenery, an exploration into ancient cultures, or foodie meanderings through metropolitan cities - Europe can provide.
Highlights of Europe
Hiking in the highlands
Europe has some spectacular mountain scenery and is a fantastic destination for those who love to hike. Head into the Svaneti Highlands in Georgia for spectacular views of soaring peaks, lush green slopes and tumbling rivers of meltwater. Wandering through the volcanic landscapes of Iceland is also surely one for the bucket list.
Some of the world's best restaurants can be found in the cities of Europe, but you needn't look any further than the local eateries for some truly delicious fare. Sip on fine wine in Georgia, where archaeologists found the earliest examples of viticulture, sample caviar paired perfectly with vodka and pickles in Russia, be taught to cook traditional dishes by a local and sample delicacies that you may not even have heard of.
History abounds throughout Europe - places of worship date back hundreds of years, the winding streets of cities have been trodden by countless generations, fabulous architecture tells tales of its own, and theatres, museums and galleries can be found all over.
