Our Top 4 Cross-Border Tours

Modern-day transportation has made travelling the world a lot easier, and more importantly a lot quicker to get from A to B. In the 1800’s it took at least 21 days to cross the Atlantic from Liverpool to New York, whereas nowadays you can jump on a flight and head downtown within 9 hours. With that our appetite for travel has changed. No longer are we content with just spending a week or two sat on the beach; we want excitement, exploration and adventure. That includes not just visiting one place on our holidays but two, three or four. We aren’t just talking cities or town’s either – we’re talking different countries and crossing borders. At Whereabouts Holidays, we offer an extensive range of cross-border holidays across Europe including Poland to Hungary (via Slovakia!), Germany to Austria and Italy and Lithiuania to Latvia. Here are some of our favourites and the ones we think are well worth trying out.

Baltic Highlights Cross-Border Cycling Holiday

Explore the Baltic Coast and National Parks of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania with our unforgettable Baltic cross-border cycling holiday. Three certainly is the magic number as you visit a trio of beautiful capital cities in Tallinn, Riga and Vilnius with a city tour included and ride around the lakelands and river valleys. Lahemaa National Park is one of the last unspoiled regions of the Baltic coast, and Otepää Lakeland, the so-called ‘Estonian Switzerland’ is but one of the beautiful Gauja River valleys, where your camera will never stop snapping at the breath-taking scenery. The tour also includes cycling on the Curonian Spit which was previously closed to visitors; nowadays it is often called the Lithuanian Sahara and is quite simply spectacular.


Starting in Poland you'll explore the river valleys of the Weistritz and Nysa Klodzka in Lower Silesia before continuing your journey through Bohemian villages in the Czech Republic on our Wroclaw and Silesia Cross-border cycling holiday. There are many historical highlights along this route from the 14th Century city walls at Paczkow to the city of Opava, the historical capital of Czech Silesia.


Trans Tyrol Cross-Border Walking Holiday

The mountains of Bavaria and the Tyrol are home to some of the most spectacular scenery in the Alps, and you’ll get to experience them on our Garmisch to Innsbruck cross-border walking holiday. Walk through the gorges and deeply cut valleys that lead up to alpine pastures and the intimidating summits of the Wetterstein and Karwendel massif. There is an almost unbelievable number of summits, high altitude paths and rustic alpine cabins to explore. Cross the Karwendel National Park up to the Northern Chain, where you glide down into the valley to Innsbruck by cable car and end your trip in real style.


If walking from Germany and Austria is not enough of a challenge for you then we can add Italy to the mix with our Garmisch to Meran cross-border self-guided walking holiday. You can discover 3 countries on this self-guided alpine walking tour  taking in the diversity of the regions of Bavaria (Germany), Tyrol (Austria) and South Tyrol (Italy).
