For adventurous outdoor lovers, there are so many amazing experiences to be had across Europe, across all seasons. I recently asked members of the We Are The Wanderers Facebook group and there were so many incredible suggestions. It was so hard to narrow it down, but here are 5 of Europe’s best outdoor adventures to add to your bucket list.

5 of Europe’s Best Outdoor Adventures

Hiking in Norway by Aspen Jeanne Photography

Kayaking With Killer Whales In Norway

If you watched Blue Planet 2 on the BBC, you might have seen that Norway is one of the best places in the world to see wild orcas during the winter months when they head in to the fjords up in the north to hunt herring.

Hot Air Ballooning At Sunrise In Turkey

The strange rocks and caves around Cappadocia are magnificent from the ground, but the best way to see them is by hot air balloon at sunrise.

Ski Tour The Haute Route From Chamonix To Zermatt

The Haute Route is a multi-day ski tour traversing the Alps from Chamonix in France to Zermatt in Switzerland, and is perhaps the most famous ski tour in the world. There’s also a Hikers Haute Route in the summer months.

Cycle The Famous Alpe d’Huez Tour De France Route

The Alpe d’Huez climb is one of the most iconic in Tour De France history, and one for every serious road cyclist’s bucket list.

Diving In The Azores

Some of the best diving in the world is in the Azores.  Not only are there are shipwrecks and caves to explore, at certain times of the year you could be swimming with sharks and rays.
