When you think of Europe, what do you imagine? Ancient coliseums, peaceful vineyards and quaint village squares? Well, there’s a whole other side to Europe that will have the intrepid of heard ready to explore.
A European adventure can come in many forms. One adventure holiday in Europe could mean scuba diving in the unbelievably crystal-clear waters off Gozo, Malta. Another could mean climbing Mount Elbrus – one of the seven summits of the world.
If you’re looking for an indisputably bucket list-worthy experience a little closer to home, our activity holidays in Europe are the perfect choice.
Europe is one of the most underrated continents when it comes to adventure travel. But just because it doesn’t have the world’s highest mountain or largest reef doesn’t mean you can’t have some utterly amazing experiences here.
Whether you are a passionate cyclist, budding diver or keen mountaineer, Europe’s opportunities for adventure will blow you away – all you have to do is look.
Discover fascinating marine life by day and dine on delicious Mediterannean cuisine by night. Trek past glistening sapphire lakes and climb to the icy summit of Europe’s highest mountain – it’s all here, and it’s right on your doorstep.
What our Customers Say
Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:
“I can’t thank these guys enough… I just completed Everest Base Camp, and what an amazing experience it has been. From the moment of booking to getting home, everything has been thought of.
If you want a trip of a lifetime, with no hassle, meeting some amazing people, then book with these guys. I am already looking to book my next trip.”

“Working with The Bucket List Company was easy. All the information was provided to us, and we felt so prepared. Any questions we had on equipment or training were answered straight away.
The trip itself was amazing. All of the group were great and the in-country guides were superb. Keith’s knowledge of Tanzania and Kilimanjaro is second to none. With all the logistics in place, the group reached the summit as planned.
We are both looking forward to our next trip. And in the future I will be heading back to Tanzania and climbing Kilimanjaro again!”

“Ok, so if you aren’t Wonder Woman or the female version of Edmund Hillary (although we did have our very own Ironwoman – unfortunately not me!) but you fancy a bit of a challenge/adventure, then this is ideal!
This trip will challenge you mentally and physically, but because you make new amazing friends and have such a laugh – along with seeing the vibrancy of Morocco – you soon forget about how much you are struggling. The elation of achievement when you reach the top is phenomenal, and worth every foot step!
Other companies may offer the same trip, but I doubt they give the same level of expertise from the moment you pay your deposit! Everything has been thought of, from the advice about equipment to buy/rent, to the tips for working with our amazing guides and porters.
And then there’s our Bucket list Company rep, Gareth! Gareth, aka Billy Boy Wonder, was the best expedition leader you can ask for. He was always positive, encouraging, smiling and calm, even when there was a drama or something didn’t go according to plan. Oh, and ask him about his belly dancing skills!
I would highly recommend this company, and will be booking another trip! If you have any doubts, don’t! Just book it! You won’t regret it, and will finish the week with a permanent smile, some lovely new friends and priceless memories! Thank you to everyone on our trip. And at last I can say: “Got the t-shirt and wearing it!”

“Kilimanjaro has always been high up on my bucket list, and when I saw that The Bucket List Company were running another trip, I knew it was time to get myself booked on.
Keith and his team were always at the end of the phone to answer questions and Keith’s Guide to Kilimanjaro just answered all of my queries. I attended the pre-expedition training weekend, which enabled me to meet the other people I would be travelling with. It also gave me chance to meet Keith and the Bucket List team and put faces to names. The training weekends are certainly a must.
On the expedition, Keith was very aware of his whole group’s needs and made sure everyone was coping well. The team’s in-country guides and porters were also amazing. They cooked for and looked after us amazingly. Summiting Kilimanjaro was a dream of mine and the Bucket List Company made that a reality. I certainly wouldn’t hesitate to book another trip with The Bucket List Company, and would urge anyone considering a trip to just book and start training!”
“If you want to realise your dreams, the team at The Bucket List Company need to be your travel companions. From the ease of booking, preparing kit lists and training encouragement to the summiting of Mt Kilimanjaro, the team are there to support you 100% of the way. The knowledge and in country support was amazing. We came back a team of successful climbers, full of knowledge and experiences of Tanzania and her wonders.
We laughed (a lot) and we cried; we sang and danced and we ate extremely well. They even managed pizza and chips halfway up the mountain! Everyone became one big family, relaxed and laid back, each of us supporting everyone’s ambition to get to the top. A truly life changing experience. We are already planning our next trip with Keith and the team.”
“Having recently returned from visiting Machu Picchu with The Bucket List Company, I cannot recommend them highly enough! What a life-changing experience! The trip was exceptionally organised and Keith is the best expedition leader out there.
Even when I was struggling with the altitude, my health was closely monitored by the group and I was really well looked after. This will definitely not be my last Bucket List trip. Thank you so much Keith!”
