Europe’s biodiversity is astonishing. Virgin forests, steppes, alpine areas, plains, marine environments, fresh-and salt water marshes, and islands all provide habitats for an enormous array of animals. Literally thousands of sites across Europe are protected to enable these flora and fauna to thrive. National and nature parks are open to the public for outdoor activities from gentle walks to extreme sports in some cases, always with respect for the environment. Imagine camping in a hide overnight to spot bears living their lives, kayaking on a tranquil lake, listening to a chorus of bird song, or seeing deer, bison, mouflon as you explore ancient forests or wide-open natural landscapes! Birdwatchers in particular are enthralled by the many places to view migratory birds on their way to more appealing climates. The wild side of Europe is waiting for you!
