When thinking about Europe do you picture yourself exploring wonderful cities like Berlin, Madrid, Rome, Dublin, Helsinki? Sure, enjoying the city life in Europe visiting museums, eating out, walking around, is nothing short of exciting and fun. But often overlooked are nearly 500 breathtaking European National Parks across the continent. For those who love the outdoors, stunning landscapes, and recharging in nature, a visit to a national park while in Europe should be considered.
Some things you are able to do at these parks include snowshoeing through the pines in Finland while surrounded by wild moose and glimmering freshwater. Or how does taking a boat trip to a castle in the middle of rugged terrains and shiny lakes in Ireland sound? While in Italy, don’t miss the stunning coastal photo opportunities during a short 1.5mile hike in colourful Cinque Terre National Park. And at the Plitvice National Park in Croatia, you can find the UNESCO World Heritage site of 16 crystal clear lakes and 90 waterfalls. A site to behold.
