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.

Here’s what some of our awesome customers had to say:
“Signed up and hiked EBC in 2018. The trip was very well organised – staff, sherpas & porters were all excellent. I really did have the trip of a lifetime… so much so that I’ve signed up for a second trip back to Nepal through The Bucket List Company, this time to climb Mera Peak.
A big plus for me was having the option to pay off my balance in affordable monthly chunks – otherwise I couldn’t afford trips like this. I also liked having my own individual web portal/log-in where I could access all the details of my trip.”

“Both my wife and I booked last September to climb Kilimanjaro. The experience was unforgettable with so many good friends made for life. We enjoyed the experience so much we have committed to another two trips with the same company in September 2019 to Mount Toubkal in North Africa and the Salkantay trip to Machu Picchu in 2020.
The trip up Kilimanjaro was absolutely fantastic, the trip was well organised and the porters were superb. I would recommend this company to anyone who would like to achieve their goals and aspirations and to tick a superb challenge off their Bucket List.”
Mount Kilimanjaro climb
“Fantastic lifetime experience. Easy and affordable payment options and you are looked after start to finish. Very knowledgeable guides, nothing was too much trouble for the porters. I would 100% recommend the BLC for your dream trip. Even when we returned home we had a package waiting, thanking us for choosing BLC, and T-shirts. Thank you Keith and Jake!”

“I had the most amazing time on my Bucket List trip to Morocco. The trip was very well planned. I loved the food, the people on our trip, the places we stayed and of course our guide Gareth, who was absolutely brilliant. I would definitely book another trip in the near future. Thank you for an amazing experience.”
Mount Toubkal trek
“Recently went to Gozo with the bucket list company for a week to learn to dive and obtain a padi open water certificate. It was affordable and the option to pay in instalments made it even more so.
The trip was well planned, so much fun and something I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend to others. I will definitely be booking again!”
Gozo Diving Trip
“Rocking up to the airport ready to meet the other “bucket listers” who signed up to the same adventure; I felt nervous of what was ahead and who would I be spending the next 10 days with.
My nerves were put at rest instantly. I now have 10 new awesome friends!
We were welcomed by Keith at the airport and from then on in, everything was wonderfully organised. So much so that Keith even helped us find a TV to watch the Arsenal game during the trek when were in the middle of Lares. Totally going above and beyond!
The knowledge and passion to travel really shone through and made the entire experience a true dream. The Bucket List Company are smaller than other companies in this market; however don’t let that put you off, this is a strength!
They are a super knowledgeable company, led by people who have a real passion for what they do. It was all about my bucket list of activities and ticking them off – this was their main objective. They were also happy to tweak plans to fit others needs; this level of flexibility (including the payment plans/options) is not so welcoming in larger companies.
I would encourage everyone to jump onto the adventures The Bucket List Company offer – go on do it now!
I am already signing up to my next adventure with the Bucket List Company!”
