Hey, newcomer here. Basically me and my brother have been bought a month Euro rail pass each. We are 19 and 21 and can’t wait to see what Europe has to offer. We a pretty keen to make it an activity/adventure based trip if we can and were looking for any ideas on which countries would be best for this kind of thing i.e. kayaking, climbing, mountain biking etc.

Also if anyone had any tips for first time travellers would be much appreciated, such as kit that would be benificial for a pretty active trip.

thanks alot
Will

Hey Will,

Others can recommend certain locations, but I would assume good kayaking/climbing spots would be in Austria, Switzerland, northern Italy, southern Germany and so on. You might find cheaper activities like this in Poland and other parts of eastern Europe, too.

Hopefully that can help you start looking in the right direction.

When do you plan to leave and what’s your budget – that always helps.

Good luck!

Well we are both students so budget is pretty tight as you can imagine, but i’d say about £1500 each max. We are going for the month of July.
Cheers for the ideas, will have a look into them, cannot wait. Meant to be revising for exams right now but far too busy thinking about his

1500 quid ain’t too shabby.

I’m assuming you’re in the UK, so take a look at the offers on WizzAir, bmi and so on for some of the Polish resorts. Some of my colleagues back in Dublin used to live all over the country and several mentioned the hiking/mountains areas.

It might be better for your budget and then you can head down toward Prague and Brno if you wanted a change of pace. Even consider something around Budapest – I guess it depends if you want a resort, a tour guide or just places to see on your own.

Take care of your revisions first. Then you can plan non-stop! Wink

Ye Budapest sounds pretty promising. Booked tickets now for the 12th July so heading to Paris early morning and then trying to get to Pamplona Bull run to kick the tour off. Aiming to catch the last two days of it.
Does anybody know of the quickest way to get to Pamplona via train. willing to travel non-stop to make it there before the end.
And also has anybody done it before, wondering if there is any advice or stories about it
thanks alot
