Visit Amsterdam, Munich, the Swiss Alps, and Venice on this epic European program designed specifically for older teens. Join us for the ideal mix of insider knowledge, travel know-how, and fun as our groups winds its way by train through some of the best of the continent!
Journey through four European countries and discover what it really means to backpack Europe with Travel For Teens! Our approach is rooted in the classic backpacker strategy – travel by rail, explore cities with a wide variety of daily choices, and leave ourselves open to the spontaneous possibilities that every day brings. This is our original Older Teens trip and is a classic combination of some of the best cities and natural beauty in Europe. We will begin with the northern canals in quaint Amsterdam and travel all the way down to the canals of charming Venice. In between, there will be plenty of time to explore famous sites such as Anne Frank’s House and fairytale castles in Munich. Take a guided tour of the Van Goh Museum, and get your adrenaline pumping with adventure activities such as hiking and canyoneering in the Swiss Alps.
Our Older Teens trips are specially designed for high school students who want to gain a global perspective before heading out into the “real world.” We are all about a hands-on approach to travel, where we go beyond the casual tourist experience, take public transportation, and learn how daily life really is in each place we visit. We provide a unique and carefully crafted itinerary that allows for more challenges and independence. We encourage teens on these trips to learn how to use a Eurail pass along with other handy travel skills so that they become confident and able to take on even more of the world in the future!
