Europe for Youths

Europe for Youths

Elsewhere in our blog we've talked about Travelling with Teenagers, given Teen to Teen Advice as well as Parental Advice on family holidays all around the far flung corners of our glorious globe. Now that every hidden nook and secret cranny is now in play with teens in tow, let's not forget and neglect our own magnificent continent. Europe equals villa holidays, skiing, city breaks and more, all easily accessible and ready and waiting to fuel their passion for travel. Here are some of our quirkier European recommendations...


Buggy Up

Avoid the crowds on route to Iceland's epic 'golden triange' of huge waterfalls, rift valleys and spouting geysers on a guided family tour in two-seater ATV buggies. You won't see tarmac all day, instead buzzing along off-road tracks.


City Slicker

Home to arguably Europe's finest cuisine and a perfect city beach surf break, San Sebastian should appeal to teen devotees of Deliciously Ella and surf champ Mick Fanning fans alike. We'll arrange cooking classes and/or surf lessons with the best local instructors.



Teens are as partial to a bit of 'braggability' as the rest of us, so they'll love walking through (and social media-ing about) Vikos Gorge - the world's deepest - in Greece's Zagori region. Throw in a visit to the hanging monasteries of Meteora for an educational angle as well.


Featured Hotel: Argentous Yacht

Argentous is a magnificent 65ft yacht that plies the waters of the Ionian Sea every summer. On a private charter Mum and Dad will relish sipping G&T's at sunset while teenagers will fall hard for the contents of the 'garage', namely wakeboards, waterskis, rubber rings and paddle boards.
