More About Europe Group Tours & Trips

Is traveling to Europe safe as a solo traveler?

Solo travelers have been backpacking across Europe for decades. The modernization of most cities helps keep everyone connected and comfortable. At Under30Experiences, safety is always a priority and your Trip Leader will always be able to advise you on the local area. We always recommend traveling light, leaving valuables at home, and staying with your group if you are concerned. One of the great things about group travel is “safety in numbers”.

Will I have to know the local language? 

You will find that many people in Europe know multiple languages, English often being one of them. Menus can usually be provided in English. However, your Trip Leader will know the local language to help navigate situations when they come up. Our travelers love to learn a little Spanish, Italian, Icelandic, French, Arabic, Greek, etc.

What is the best time of year to visit Europe?

Europe’s peak season is the summer months, but spring and fall are very popular as well. Places like Ireland and Scotland can stay cool and rainy year-round, while August can bring heat waves in places like Spain and Italy where air conditioning is often unavailable. You will find almost all of our Europe trips have numerous departures in June & September to take advantage of great weather and avoid peak crowds. 

Iceland sounds like a cold place but it actually enjoys a relatively temperate climate. Even in October and November, you still rarely encounter freezing temperatures during the day. In May, June, and July, you’ll find nearly 24 hours of daylight in Iceland, while in October and November you’ll find only 6-8 hours of daylight, great for seeing the Northern Lights.

Why signup for a group trip to Europe?

Here are just a few of the reasons travelers join our group trips: 

  • Not everyone wants to plan and research extensive itineraries. Our trips include many of the best locations and activities in each country built for young adventurous travelers.
  • A guide is with you throughout your trip to help with local languages, lead you on hikes, teach you about the area, and make sure each day goes as planned. It can be reassuring knowing that you are always on the right trail or having a Trip Leader that knows backup plans for bad weather or has recommendations for optional activities.
  • Meeting great people! When you join an Under30Experiences trip you know you will be with a group of like-minded people in your age range.

"Just got back from the Ireland trip and had an absolutely fantastic time! Can't believe how well we all meshed with the other group members and became good friends at the end. The trip was so well planned with the right amount of activities and leisure time. I never felt rushed and it was just the right pace of vacationing and exploring." - Ammara T. | Yelp Review
