Play & Pause: Epic European

Up to 10% off selected departures on this trip

Trip Overview

TRIP VIBE = the perfect mix of group activities and all-important YOU time. This? It's basically the OG of Europe trips. 36 mind-blowing, jaw-dropping days of pure unadulterated Europe-ness. Take 18 countries, the sun-bleached coastlines of the Adriatic, the dizzying mountain peaks of the Swiss Alps and cities that have straight-up shaped the world's history. And add in bags of free time to do whatever it is you came for. Discover Europe, discover yourself along the way. It's a win-win.

Worth noting…
Joining us on our 17 May, 12 July or 19 July departures? On Day 9, instead of staying in the French Riviera and exploring Monaco, we’ll be spending the night in Marseille.
