When most people think about taking a vacation exploring Europe, they think about museums, old cities, music festivals, and even wild parties in some of the best nightclubs in the world, but very few of them really consider the fact that there are lots of destinations which are perfect to relax and enjoy nature with family, friends, or a romantic partner.
If you’re considering traveling around Europe and you have that itch to visit natural landmarks more than anything else, here are some of the best destinations for nature lovers there.
Dordogne Valley, France
With a natural environment which has been carefully preserved by the locals, the Dordogne Valley is one of the most magnificent natural destinations in France. Lots of activities are available for tourists in the Dordogne River, including swimming and canoeing. Caves with prehistoric paintings and a large number of cliff dwellings, stalactites, and stalagmites are also part of the deal.
Bergen is the gateway to the Fjords of Norway. This old city is arranged around its harbor and lies between the Sognefjord and the Hardangerfjord. This makes the city the perfect spot for people who want to explore the Fjords. Mt. Fløyen, Mt. Ulriken, and other seven different mountains are really close to downtown.
Krk Islands, Croatia
Located in the middle of the Kvarner bay, the island of Krk is notorious for its Mediterranean weather, its position, and the wide variety of natural and cultural treasures available to tourists. Besides the amazing coasts, coves, and lagoons, the island of Krk has two lakes and three magnificent streams.
Capri is one of the most beautiful islands in Europe. The landscape and its beaches are what attract many tourists every year, but the beautiful gardens and Capri’s world-famous lemon trees can’t just be ignored. If you’re the kind of person who just loves a pristine looking beach to lie down and relax, Capri is one of the best destinations available.
Although it’s the capital city of Iceland, one of the smallest ones in Europe, some natural wonders can just be enjoyed from there. The biggest attraction would have to be the Aurora Borealis during wintertime, but volcanoes and glaciers are also part of the deal. If you want to experience an almost alien nature-loving experience, go to Reykajvik.
Everything in Switzerland seems to be designed for nature lovers and Interlaken is not the exception to this rule. The city sits between two extraordinary lakes and access to different peaks and incredible-looking fields are easy. Take a short train ride and be ready to enjoy the most shocking alpine scenery in Europe.
With its natural healing water springs, Eger is one of the most famous tourist towns in Europe. The medieval atmosphere, its ancient castle, its temple towers, and some of the most beautiful hills in Europe adorned with magnificent vineyards, create an almost magical environment for nature lovers.
While some people love to go to the biggest cities and music festivals, the more relaxed crowd will definitely enjoy visiting some of these destinations the next time they travel to Europe. Did you choose your favorite already?
