Europe’s Most Underrated Travel Destinations

Nick Dauk

Enjoy peace and quiet without skimping on gorgeous views by exploring some of Europe’s less charted wonders with one of these Culture Trip adventures.

Though many of what were once Europe’s most underrated travel destinations are now ultra-popular tourism hubs, there are still many cities, regions and entire countries that even European citizens overlook. What if we told you that the world’s oldest winemaking practices are hiding on the continent in plain sight? Discover a different side to remote locales and countries you thought you knew by joining one of these specially curated trips with Culture Trip.

View from Marjan Hill over the old town of Split at dusk, Split, Croatia, Europe

See why Croatia’s cities add shine to the Dalmatian Coast

Making the trip to Croatia only to explore Dubrovnik Old Town is a bit like travelling to New York City to eat a slice of pizza. The marble-lined streets are well worth the journey, and Croatia’s status as an underrated European country is yours to redefine. Hvar nightlife, Split beaches and Korčula fortified island town are just a few of the sights that most visitors fly past. See it all with this Culture Trip on this tour of Croatia’s Dalmatian Coast.

Aerial view of Miradouro da Vista do Rei, Sao Miguel, Azores

Get adventurous in the Atlantic on the Azores

This Portuguese archipelago is about as remote as Europe gets, and our six-day tour of São Miguel, the largest island, is proof that the Azores are Europe’s premier adventure playground. You’ll cycle around and kayak on the two stunning crater lakes at Sete Cidades, hike around Furnas Lake, go abseiling down a waterfall and canyoning down mountain streams, as well as embarking on a whale and dolphin-spotting marine safari. Lower the heart rate with soaks in natural volcanic hot springs and cook a hearty cozido stew underground using only geothermal heat.
