Europe Trips

Why Europe?

From opera in Vienna to Sicilian cooking in Palermo and a beer crawl in the heart of lively Ljubljana, you’ll discover all the best places in Europe on your Flash Pack adventure(s).

Hop aboard a Vespa and wend your way through the hills of medieval Spain. Paddle-board Lake Bled in Slovenia, hike the Cairngorm Mountains of Scotland and take a twilight snowmobile safari beneath the Northern Lights of Finland. Whether you’re relaxing in the warmth of Iceland’s Blue Lagoon, hiking a glacier in Norway or living the high life in the Prosecco Hills of Italy; you’ll soon realise how much this continent has to offer.

Europe facts

From cuisine to landscapes, here are a few things you should know about Europe


Europe’s population stands at nearly 750 million people, which extends from the northern edges of Scandinavia to the Mediterranean coast. Russia boasts the largest population, while the Vatican City is officially the least populated country, with less than 1,000 inhabitants.


You’ll find remnants of Europe’s Moorish past in the southern reaches of Spain, Portugal and Italy. Central Europe is home to picturesque villages and elegant Austro-Hungarian architecture; while Greece and Cyprus play host to ancient ruins mingled with Eastern influences.


French cuisine dominates fine dining, but Italian is a firm favorite for home-cooking and food with heart. Mediterranean cuisine is lauded for being one of the healthiest in the world, and you’ll find a crossover with Middle Eastern recipes the further east you go.


While Europe is known for its mild climates, it’s no less diverse for it. Travel to Scandinavia for glaciers, ice fields and fjords. Uncover the only desert in Europe in Spain. Hike up invigorating peaks in Central Europe, and navigate the volcanic black deserts of Iceland.


Brown bears are native to Central Europe, found in regions such as the High Tatras Mountains. The Eurasian lynx and wolf are species most commonly found in Russia and Eastern Europe; and the iconic reindeer is native to the Arctic Circle.
