Escape from the traffic jams of everyday life and find refuge in nature’s splendor. Whether you’re seeking to trade the glare of the streetlights for the glow of the moon or the chatter of commuters for the sounds of the wild, Europe’s nature retreats will soothe your soul. Find harmony among reindeer near the Arctic Circle, consume the bounty of the earth in North Wales, and sip wine in rural Georgia on these great holidays and nature retreat TRIPS by Culture Trip.
2 . Find Your Wild Side in North Wales

The weather may not be the most reliable, but in summer you can rest assured your teeth won’t be chattering at the top of Mt Snowdon – the second highest peak in Great Britain and one you’ll conquer on this all-action, five-day trip. You’ll also go exploring along the Anglesey coast, the perfect place to forage for wild edibles. Round off the trip with a night spent under the stars in a remote cabin in Snowdonia National Park.

3 . Escape to Iceland’s Frozen Wilderness

A snug and luxurious retreat is always more appreciated after a day filled with heart-racing activity. On this five-day Iceland trip, you’ll whiz around on a snowmobile, explore the Golden Circle by jeep, and enjoy a high-speed trip on a husky-pulled sled. Back at your hot springs-powered hotel or snow-smothered log cabin, warm up by the fire or in the hot tub – then really warm up with shots of brennivin to toast one epic day after another.

4 . Riches and Ruins: Wine, Dine and Step Back in Time in Rural Georgia

Georgia may well be Europe’s best-kept secret – and this nine-day trip promises to reveal this enigmatic nation in full. Start in Tbilisi, the capital, then venture out to rural towns where the oldest wine-making practices in the world began. There’ll be many hearty meals to hoover up after days spent hiking in the foothills of Mt Kazbegi, where your chalet-style accommodation is located.

5 . Britain’s Last Frontier: Exploring the Outer Hebrides

There’s no shortage of isolated windswept islands in Scotland, and the Hebridean Isles are certainly among the most striking. This specially curated trip takes you from mainland Scotland to the islands of Skye, Harris and Lewis, where you’ll get lost among craggy peaks and crumbling ruins, kayaking your way through secluded inlets. There’s also a visit to the Isle of Harris Distillery – and the chance to stay in a converted fishermen’s cottage overlooking Portree Harbour on Skye. Pair that with a stay at a cosy hotel in Stornoway marina and you’ve got the makings of a true retreat-style holiday.
