“My trip to Romania with Exodus involved only a three-hour flight, but it introduced me to landscapes and cultures I thought had long disappeared, as well as one of the most thrilling animal encounters I’ve ever had: watching a dozen brown bears from a hide deep in the Carpathian Mountains. Now there’s a backyard worth exploring.”
Dan Linstead, Wanderlust Editor, who travelled to Romania with Exodus
Yes, you can travel to Europe from the UK after Brexit, but there is a chance you’ll need to get a visa, extra travel documents, and you will almost certainly need travel insurance that covers healthcare.

When is the best time to tour Europe?
The answer to when the best time is to tour Europe depends on your personal preferences! Indeed, every corner of the continent is worth visiting through all four seasons, from snowy and stark winter through to bright and welcoming summer.
If you are looking to visit well-travelled locations without crowds, the ‘shoulder seasons’ of April to mid-June and September to October have fewer crowds and comfortable temperatures. Of course, many of our European tours visit lesser-travelled corners of the continent, so feel free to book during your favourite season, and if you want to know the best time to tour your chosen destination, please get in touch.
