The Southern Trail
Smash off the big bucket list items on this gallivant through Europe’s finest; France, Spain, Monaco, Italy, the Vatican City & Greece. With less money spent on fancy digs you’ll never be in, you’ll have more cash to sign up to a Gondola ride in Venice, a Flamenco dance show in Barcelona & watersports whilst you’re island hopping on the Ionian Sea.

Accommodation

  • Start the trip off with a night in our London hotel before the adventure begins, then you and your new besties will be snoozing two-to-a-tent in campsites across Europe for 17 nights. There’ll also be 2 nights in funky hostels and 1 night where you’ll sleep in a ship as we take a ferry from Italy to Greece.

Food

  • Expand your palette with a plethora of gourmet treats, from Greek favourites like moussaka to steaming piles of paella in Spain. Breakfast is on us every day except one, and we’ll also throw in 12 tasty dinners for good measure.

Staff

  • You’ll be safe in the hands of your professional Trip Manager, who knows the streets of Europe better than you know the hairs on your toes. An on-road cook will be whipping up tasty treats, and when it comes to transport, an experienced and legendary driver will be taking the reins. Trust us, they’re always a hoot.
