The star player gracefully hurtles towards the ball. They swing their leg backward in preparation, their eyes fixed on the prize. The ball sails smoothly into the net. It’s a goal! And the third in a row.
There’s nothing quite like a hat trick. Three artful moves execute in quick succession. While Euro 2020 has us glued to the screen for the next star move, we’re also dreaming of a trio of another kind: the travel hat trick!
Europe is home to 44 nations, meaning a trip to the continent often merits an adventure to more than just one country. If you’ve ever wanted to explore coastal Croatia and pop over the border to mountainous Montenegro, or explore both Italy and Germany’s finest lakes, we’ve got that covered! Remember, you can take a massive 10% off all air holidays to countries competing in Euro 2020. Find out more.
To help you plan your next adventure, we’ve rounded up four of our European tours that offer a travel hat trick:
Craving some much-needed sunshine? You won’t go without it on this tri-country adventure that covers Croatia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Montenegro. Kick-off your journey in Croatia, and bask in the light by the glittering Makarska Riviera. When you’re ready to take things up a notch, soak up the city atmosphere of walled Dubrovnik.
Have a breath of fresh air in Krka National Park, a hidden gem nestled in Dalmatia, and prepare to marvel at southern Europe’s largest “fjord”, the Bay of Kotor, in sunny southwestern Montenegro.
Stroll to your heart’s content in the awe-inspiring Bohemian capital of the Czech Republic, Prague, and then head to Vienna to see the Ringstrasse buildings and the elegant Hofburg Palace. Wrap up your trip with a stop in exciting Budapest, and take a relaxing soak in the city’s famous thermal baths and see the metropolis from an unforgettable Danube river cruise.
Live it up with seven nights’ bed and breakfast accommodation at a collection of four-star hotels in Finland, Estonia, and Latvia. This hat trick of eccentric Baltic capital cities offers a glimpse into the rich history of each country as well as all the charms of modern life including award-winning cuisine.
A real highlight of the journey is the scenic route along Estonia’s charming coastline towards Latvia’s cosmopolitan capital, Riga.
If you’ve always considered yourself to be a lover of the finer things in life, book a spot on our Oberammergau tour. You’ll spend two magical nights in the heart of Austrian Tyrol, exploring the Tyrolean capital, Innsbruck and the city made famous by The Sound of Music, Salzburg.
Continue through into the striking Bavarian Alps to Germany’s Oberammergau where you’ll take your seat as the story of Christ’s Passion unfolds on the incredible open-air stage. Over 1500 villagers will perform the ultimate hat trick: acting, singing or playing in the orchestra.
And the culture doesn’t end here. Cross through the stunningly green Brenner Pass into Italy and explore the quaint villages perched amidst the Dolomites and explore the idyllic Lake Garda and the home of Romeo and Juliet, Verona.
