Put away your city clothes and prepare for a journey in nature you’ll never forget. Europe’s varied topography makes for myriad microclimates and habitats that are teeming with plants and animals, many of which you can see – if you’re lucky! – only in Europe. Check the UNESCO’s lists, always a good idea, to help pinpoint extra special biospheres and natural attractions, by type or location. See how communities that have lived within now-protected areas for centuries continue a longstanding, sustainable way of life. You can find self-guided walks and hikes or take interpretive tours, keep it low-key or go for thrills and speed with high-adrenaline sports. The standard of trail maintenance, marking, and accessibility is high because Europe loves its natural treasures. Come and discover them for yourself!
