Undiscovered Europe - 8 trips in Eastern Europe

Stunning scenery, sensational artistic and culinary diversity, a wide range of cultures and languages and a history that stretches across millennia - you will find all of it in Europe.

And while Western Europe has been firmly established on the traveller's map, Eastern Europe is far-less visited by North Americans. Yet it has as much to offer as the western part, and in most places you feel like you travelled back in time. Here are eight trips that have you discover Eastern Europe.


Georgia & Armenia

Caucasus Explorer

14 days from CA$3749

Physical Rating: Leisurely / Moderate

Journey through the Caucasus, home to some of the oldest Christian cultures on Earth. Start in the capital of Armenia, Yerevan, and visit the monasteries the country is famous for: Khor Virap, Noravank and Geghard. Drive by Lake Sevan and visit medieval churches en-route to Georgia's capital Tbilisi.

In Georgia, enjoy stupendous views along the Georgian Military Highway and walk up through the village of Gergeti to the Holy Trinity church, set against the backdrop of Mount Kazbek. Visit Gori, the birthplace of Joseph Stalin, walk in some beautiful areas, explore the rock-hewn town of Uplistsikhe and try some of the wine the country is famous for.



Ukraine & Moldova

Explore Ukraine and Moldova

16 days from CA$4080

Physical Rating: Moderate

Our 2-week tour through Ukraine and Moldova is a journey through the borderland of Europe, a step back in time, giving glimpses of what much of Europe once was like. From Ukraine's capital Kyiv, which we explore by metro, we travel via a Strategic Missile Force Museum to the character-filled port city of Odesa on the Black Sea. Next, travel to Transnistria, a breakaway republic of the country Moldova. The capital of the latter, Chisinau, is visited next, followed by the church complex at Orheiul Vechi. Then it is back into Ukraine for a visit to pretty Kamianets-Podilskyi and lively Chernivtsi. Elegant Lviv is our last stop before we return to Kyiv for what is perhaps the most thought-provoking visit of your travels: the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.



Romania

Best of Romania

10 days from CA$2849

Physical Rating: Leisurely

Romania is a forgotten corner of Europe, a country of medieval towns, fortified churches and small villages, a land where traditions live strong. This journey takes in the best of Romania, from the wooden churches in Maramureș, the Saxon villages in Transylvania, and the beautiful town of Sighisoara.
