The Best Summer Holidays in Europe

Brush off your passport and discover somewhere new with these hot ideas for summer travel this year.

  • 1. High Tatras, Slovakia

    Looking for the wild outdoors and stunning scenery? You'll have it in spades here. The landscape is rugged, the wildlife is plentiful, and it's a real hotspot for hiking, climbing, and even bear spotting.

  • 2. The Shetland Islands

    Just want to get away from it all? Take a ferry from Aberdeen, and you'll be rewarded by beauty and solitude. The walking trails are wild, the bird-watching is magnificent, and the island also boasts thriving music, arts, and foodie scenes.

  • 3. Majorca

    Just a short flight away from the UK, this Balaeric island is ideal for families and couples looking for peace. There are lovely villas, plenty of fine restaurants, activities, and entertainments aplenty. Catch your fill of culture and colour at the capital of Palma.

  • 4. Italian Lakes

    Whether Como or Garda calls you, this spot is ideal for couples who want to relax. Enjoy the finest Italian food, wander around the lakes, enjoy some boating, or head up to the mountains for fresh air and incredible views. Remember to book your accommodation well in advance though.

  • 5. Madrid, Spain

    Holidaying solo? Why not try this trendy city, which is safe and friendly for individual travellers. Book a cosy BnB where the hosts can point out local hotspots, head to Calle de Ponzano for standing-only tapas, and revel in art and culture.

  • 6. Reykjavic, Iceland

    For travellers looking for something different, Reykjavic is a perfect place to find inspiration in the ethereal landscape. You can relax at the Blue Lagoon or the wonderful restaurants and hotels. Take a coach journey to see local geysers, waterfalls, and other local geological wonders. Remember to look out for the Northern Lights.

  • 7. Lyon, France

    In Lyon, you can look forward to proud gastronomic, cultural, and entertainment scenes, a beautiful city vista, and a sustainable approach to eco-travel.

  • 8. Istria, Croatia

    This glorious peninsula is on the cusp of becoming a global hotspot - so see it before everyone else does! Look for Roman amphitheatres, enjoy gourmet food, relax on tree-lined beaches, dance at live music festivals, and enjoy truffle hunting in autumn.

  • 9. Amsterdam, The Netherlands

    This is a fun spot for a young crowd and the city really buzzes in summer with live music, outdoor dining, great parks, and a cosmopolitan, trendy crowd.

  • 10. Cappadocia, Turkey

    If you've never taken a hot-air balloon over the magical rocky landscape of Cappadocia's caves, or explored the underground city of Kaymakli, then add it to your bucket list now!
