Europe’s best tours for active young adults
While do-it-yourself backpacking trips to Europe are still popular among young people, a significant number of college students and travelers in their 20s and early 30s opt to book guided youth tours. The perks of youth escorted tours are the same as other escorted tours. However, to attract cost conscious students and other young people, most youth tour companies make use of budget accommodations like campgrounds or hotels located outside city centers.
These youth-oriented trips are infused with a great sense of fun and camaraderie, and they are designed with the budget traveler in mind. Guided sightseeing excursions are balanced with ample free time to explore. Solo travelers are welcomed with singles share programs that match roommates of the same gender. Participants often come away from these tours with new friendships and future travel companions.
There are two tour operators catering to younger travelers: Contiki offers tours solely to people age 18-35, and Trafalgar reserves certain departures for travelers age 21-38.
