For your next adventure travel holiday: the best discovery tours in (almost) every country in Europe
The time to go to Europe is now. But where to go? We make it easy by listing one great tour in each country. (Well most of them - we omitted the mini-states and countries affected by the war in Ukraine). All of these are easy-going small-group discovery tours with the occasional active holiday thrown in.

Experience the magic of Lake Ohrid on a cruise, then delve into forgotten Albania where warm people, mountain villages and a bustling capital await. In Montenegro, spend some time in atmospheric Kotor, tucked between steep mountains and its bay, before entering Croatia and travelling to picture-perfect Dubrovnik.
