About Active Adventures Europe
Not just another tour company
We believe that scenery needs to be experience properly, not just through a bus window. We'll take you into the mountains, small villages, lakes and rivers of the most stunning parts of the European Alps, on foot, in a sea kayak or by bike. You don't have to be a super athlete to join any of our trips, but you will have to be interested in experiencing big mountain scenery up close, meeting the locals and taking in the history, sights and sounds of Europe in an active manner.
You'll go with the locals, you'll go with the experts
When it comes to experiencing the mountains, history and culture of Europe, it's important to go with people who have lived, breathed and explored this region their whole lives. That's why we've designed our adventures in the Mont Blanc region, Italian Lakes District and the Dolomites with years of local knowledge under our belts with the best local guides. You'll meet the locals, share their history & heritage, and share their incredible mountain back yard under your own steam in typical Active style.
Not your average European vacation package
We've been running our adventure tours in different parts of the world for over 20 years, with thousands of happy people returning from their trips, ready to take another trip of a lifetime. They're also keen to tell others thinking about joining us, about their experiences. For referrals, please call or email us and we'd be happy to put you in touch with some of our previous clients.
An Active Adventures Europe trip is not a scenic tour, but you'll go to incredible places. It's not a triathlon, but you'll get your heart rate up and the endorphins flowing. It's not a lecture on history, culture and architecture, but you'll gain personal insights from guides who know the places you'll visit like the back of their hand.
