European Travel | European Wildlife, Adventure and Cultural Holidays

Enjoy winter sun in the Mediterranean or witness the Northern Lights from Arctic Spitsbergen; discover the Celtic legacy of Scotland & Ireland or enjoy the sophisticated charm of the Scandinavian capitals; sail to remote islands or take a train across the mainland; be an active adventurer or a quiet observer - for your European journey with Gane and Marshall, your choices are many.

Europe extends from the Mediterranean to the Arctic Circle and thus encompasses a broad scope of geographies. In one European holiday you can visit ancient and modern capitals, famous towns and picture postcard villages. As you move from town to countryside, you will be amazed to discover the vastness of Europe's rural and wilderness areas, within which are found national parks, wildlife reserves, and areas of outstanding natural beauty that protect an array of wildlife species, as well as locations for just about any outdoor activity you could wish for!

At Gane and Marshall, we organise wildlife, walking and adventure holidays to selected destinations in Europe, including the Azores archipelago, Svalbard in the Arctic Circle, and, closer to the heart of Europe, holidays to Spain, Scotland, Ireland and much of Scandinavia. Our holidays focus primarily on those destinations that offer exceptional walking or wildlife opportunities, though we also offer city breaks and cultural tours, with a special emphasis on the capitals of Scandinavia.

Our European wildlife holidays range from specialist bird-watching tours in Spanish Granada to bear-viewing and wild wolf tracking in the forests of Finland and Sweden. For adventure enthusiasts, we offer trekking, climbing, dog sledding, cycling, kayaking and luxury walking activity breaks. Whether the setting is the Verdon Gorge or the icefields of Spitsbergen, we can set up an activity holiday to meet your demands. Our Four Cities holiday will be of interested to the traveller wishing to focus solely on culture and history. It is also possible to plan a city break in conjunction with a wildlife or an activity holiday.

For our travellers wishing to reduce their environmental footprint, Europe is an ideal destination. Travel by rail on Europe’s superb and extensive network. If considering sea travel and cruises, we can book you onto the new electric-powered Hurtigruten cruise ship. If you wish to fly – then Gane and Marshall will carbon-offset all flights that we book for you. Contact us now to begin planning your European journey!
