If it comes to choosing a destination for your holiday you like excitement and become an adventure, I bring a few European destinations where you can get everything you're looking:
- In St. Petersburg bike to Venice: Yes, it sounds crazy, but if you love the bike you impassion this proposal. The so-called "Amber Road" is a journey of 3,122 miles and goes from St. Petersburg to Venice. It will cross the ancient trade route from the Baltic amber and across Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria and Slovenia to get to your final destination: the wonderful Venice. Needless to say you should be a regular cyclist to do it, but if you are I think it's an exciting journey. The company Africa Cycle Tour (formerly dedicated to Africa and now more expanded) organizes groups in July and August and € 6,000 will have accommodation and food throughout the duration of the route.
- Hiking in snow in Sicily: In recent years it has become very popular hiking with snowshoes on Mount Etna, the highest volcano in Europe. No previous experience is needed in this type of hiking but it is recommended that your fitness is at least half. In this wonderful tour you will see the forest for Piano Provenzano, cross old lava flows and reach the necessary altitude to see the Ionian Sea. The company organizes Explore the months from November to March and costs about 800 € (includes accommodation, meals and tours).
- Mountaineering in the Tour of Mont Blanc (France): This route circumnavigates the highest peak in Europe through countries like Switzerland, Italy and France. You will stay in cabins and will cross spectacular lakes and glaciers. The state in order to do so must be pretty good. The company organizes Utracks and can make between June and August for a price of around € 600 and includes accommodation, meals and all the maps you need. It lasts one week.
- Walking on the Lleyn Peninsula (Wales): Wales is one of the most spectacular hiking, especially the coastal path which runs from Caernarfon to Porthmadog and is about 150 kilometers. Here you can discover the wild moors of Bwlch Mawr, the fort of the Iron Age Tre'r Ceiri and cliffs of Porth Oer. The company organizes the Edge of Wales Walk throughout the year.
