Whatever you wish to achieve from your holiday this year, the multitude of destinations that Europe covers will surely satisfy your requirements. Whether you’re looking for sun, sea, sand or snow, the various climates and terrains of Europe will come up trumps. Take a look at some of the fantastic options for your 2013 sojourn.
The Lycian Coast
Flotilla holidays are extremely popular in this area, giving you the chance to cruise the open seas whilst exploring the harbours and coves you espy along the way. With longer passages between ports, there’s plenty of time for you to relax, unwind and bask in the beautiful sunshine. Pack your snorkel gear and take advantage of the transit time and take a dip in the azure waters to see what marine life resides there.
If you have a hankering for a mountain escape, the Alps are an excellent spot for a European break. You can affordably ski in Austria, with plenty of options for a range of capabilities. Kitzbuhel, nicknamed the ‘Glitz of Kitz’ is a fantastic ski area, home to the legendary Hahnenkamm ski run.
Walking, hiking, cycling and watersports – it’s all available in and around Lake Garda in Italy. From the gentle strolls around the rustic villages to the more challenging descents higher in the hills, Lake Garda is more than just a lakeside retreat. Enjoy windsurfing in the northernmost region, where the prevailing winds are ideal, or stay in the south for some gentler activities, including kayaking and boating.
Wherever you decide to base yourself for your 2013 European vacation, whether it’s one of the flotilla holidays, watersports, or you decide to ski in Austria, you can be sure that a retreat to Europe will be an unforgettable one that will be in your memory forever.
