I am planning a euro trip from England through Europe. It is a very vague plan at the moment, but I think I have a decent start planned for the trip. I was just wondering if I am missing any must see places, or if some of the places I have at the moment aren't worth visiting. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Firstly, I will either travel up to the Scottish Highlands for three days and get a ferry from there to Harfnarfjodur in Iceland or just fly there direct and skip the Highlands.
The idea is to spend about 4-5 days in Harfnarfjodur and then catch a ferry from there to the Faroe Islands. As I understand it, theres not alot to do or see in the Faroe Islands, but there are some beautiful hiking routes, so I was thinking of just spending 2 days here.
Then another ferry over to Norway, ideally somewhere in the south, although I haven't decided on a city as yet (could do with some input here!!)
I would look to spend a week in Norway and then catch a ferry or flight (whichever is cheapest) down to Denmark. I would like to stick to the coastal areas of Denmark (again I haven't really got too many plans for Denmark so any ideas would be brilliant.)
I would be looking to travel from the north to the south of Denmark, but I don't drive, so this might be a daft question, but is it possible to walk it!?!? and stay in different placeseach night?? If not then I'll probably catch a flight from Norway down to Southern Denmark. Also, sticking to the Danish theme, I would like to have a day trip out to Helligoland if possible, any views or info on this would be superb.
From Denmark I'd be hoping to visit Holland, Amsterdam would be a must here, but any other ideas of places to visit would be grand. I was thinking three days in Amsterdam (is this enough to see everything??) and then maybe another seven days seeing the rest of Holland.
Thats kind of where I'm up to at the moment, although I was thinking from Denmark - Germany, Germany - Luxembourg, Luxembourg - France, France - Italy, Italy - Albania then work my way through eastern europe.
Im not sure if this is a good starting plan or even realistic. Also I'm not too sure if some of the places are worth visiting or if I'm missing any gems. Any thoughts and ideas would be superb.
Also, I have at the moment £3000 to spend, could be more (depending on when I decide to go), is this whole euro tour realistically possible on those funds or do I need to save a little more. I have been looking at some real cheap hotels in eastern europe and shouldn't have any financial issues over there, but Norway, Denmark and Holland can be quite expensive I have heard.
I am interested in learning about local customs, seeing local architecture, visiting any sporting events and the general tourist attractions of these countries. As well as this I do like hiking and seeing nature etc.
Thank You very much for any input, it is very much appreciated!!!
