Spain and Portugal winter escape:

March 6-21, 2022 A true winter escape to some of the warmest parts of Europe. We will start in Northern Spain with buzzing Barcelona, and head South to Costa del Sol (Sunny Coast, with our home base of Malaga)- just 90 minutes away from Gibraltar on the southern tip of Spain. Costa Del Sol is a seaside haven, and has been delighting sun seekers for decades. A great alternative to Florida or Arizona, Andalusia offers sun, waves, golf, incredible history and a variety of landscapes. This 16 day winter escape will introduce you to Granada with its iconic La Alhambra, Seville, Ronda, beautiful Marbella… Our adventure will continue to Portugal with its medieval castles, cobblestone villages, captivating cities and golden beaches: Fatima, Nazare and its majestic waves, Obidos, and Lisbon. For a full itinerary, please visit www.adventurestoeurope. com. ($4,400* per person-providing the cost of airfare remains stable, based on double occupancy. Airfare from Minneapolis is included).

Each day along the way, you’ll be amazed at all you’ll experience in a mere week of touring the Emerald Isle: historical sites, charming towns, musicfilled pubs, artisan visits, and walking tours — the Cliffs of Moher, Dingle Town, the Dingle Peninsula, the Great Blasket Centre, whiskey tasting, a cooking experience...all this and more, without a language barrier.

people charming, engaging, and super friendly. Join us for our Heart of Ireland Adventure ! ($2,499 per person based on double occupancy. Airfare is additional)

October 11-19, 2022 With thousands of miles of seafront on the clear blue Adriatic Sea and more than a thousand islands, Croatia’s coastline is Central Europe’s Riviera. Maybe friends have told you about its charming medieval towns—Split, and Korcula—that dot its famous Dalmatian Coast. Perhaps you’ve heard tales of the wonderfully preserved walled city of Dubrovnik, a World Heritage site recently made famous as a primary filming location for the series “Game of Thrones”. Whatever has caught your eye and enticed you to visit this beautiful corner of Europe, a trip to Croatia will definitely not disappoint. Croatia has overcome much over the past three decades to get to its

Current state: an independent country with a humming economy and a fastgrowing tourism industry. Its sunny, warm climate and diversity of natural beauty and historic cities, towns and landmarks mean travelers of all interests will find much to enjoy. ($2,599 per person based on double occupancy.
