Inspirational travel book covering Europe's most incredible journeys, including routes on foot and by bike, road, rail, and water.
Take the scenic route through Europe
When it comes to beautiful landscapes, Europe has more than its fair share of icons. The snowy peaks of the Alps, the vivid tulip fields of the Netherlands, and the glittering lakes of northern Italy – you’ll find them nowhere else but here. Yet pause to look around a little longer, and you’ll soon discover that these postcard favorites sit side by side with many more understated scenes that are just as stunning. In fact, the slower you go, the more treasures you’ll uncover – so why would you want to rush the experience?
Featuring over 150 inspirational entries, Unforgettable Journeys Europe is a vibrant celebration of taking the scenic route. We've picked the best adventures across the continent, from cruising around the Western Fjords of Norway to hiking the Lycian Way in Turkey. Of course, the big hitters are covered – riding Switzerland’s Glacier Express, ferry-hopping in Greece, and cycling from Land’s End in England to John O’Groats in Scotland – but we also take you off the beaten path, roaming the Albanian Riviera, kayaking through Finnish lakeland, and navigating the steady switchbacks of the Transfagarasan Road in Romania. We’ve organized the book by types of transportation, so whether you’re an avid hiker, cyclist, or driver; or love to be on the water or on the rails; we’ve got you covered. It’s time to take the slow road and truly appreciate Europe in all its wonderful variety.
