1. Mountain Climbing and Exquisite Dining in Mont Blanc, France

Mountain Climbing and Exquisite Dining in Mont Blanc, France

Western Europe’s highest peak serves as one of the most spectacular places for an adventure in Europe and can be reached via three routes, all of which are offered by Jagged Globe, one of Mont Blanc’s premiere expedition companies.

The Goûter Route is the most highly trafficked and requires of its climbers a moderately good fitness level.

With two huts to stay in along the way, you can kick back and enjoy France’s famed cuisine during your three-day long summit.

Altogether, the journey generally takes eight days, and includes training and practice climbs.

However, Mont Blanc requires a bit of expertise with ice axe and crampons, so practice up before booking a spot.

2. Cycling and Culture in the Czech Republic

Cycling and Culture in the Czech Republic

Strap on your helmet and sweat-slicking spandex and hop atop your bicycle for a peddle-pumping ride through the Czech Republic.

The undeveloped countryside of this post-Soviet country is one of the best unspoiled places for an adventure in Europe.

Composed of spectacular sun-spotted valleys dotted with pastel houses and Bohemian architecture, and with few cars traveling along the gently rolling hills, you can cruise your way through Czech, referencing routes via the Czech Greenways, an organization which both preserves the Republic’s cultural heritage and lists hundreds of hiking and cycling routes.

Along the way, you can stop off in Prague, still one of Europe’s best kept secrets, boasting a stunning city layout and comprehensive art galleries, while still being a fairly cheap city to kick back and have a beer.
