Embrace your adventurous side with some of Europe’s wildest and most beautiful landscapes. With stunning sea views and challenging hikes, it’s the perfect chance to explore some of nature’s most dramatic sights. |
We’re big lovers of nature at Prestige Holidays, and we’ve picked our top three dramatic European landscapes to help you plan your next adventure. Resorts in Lanzarote, Madeira and Brac will take you right into the heart of nature.
This Portuguese archipelago offers some of the most breathtaking sea views in Europe. With sheer cliffs, beautiful waterfalls and exotic plants, it will feel like paradise. There’s a huge range of activities to choose from, both on land and sea, but our top choice is the Rocha do Navio. Situated on the northern coastline, this marine reserve will help you strike the perfect balance between land and water. If you’re up for the challenge, take the hiking trail up the steep cliffs and enjoy the rewarding views you’ll find. Or you can take a five-minute cable car ride and effortlessly immerse yourself in the reserve’s scenery.
Our top accommodation pick is the Quinta Do Furão, situated near the attractive town of Santana. Its position at the top of a cliff means that you’ll be able to enjoy stunning vistas, which stretch across the northeast coastline and vineyards of the island.
It can’t get much more dramatic than a volcano, and Lanzarote does not disappoint. Located near West Africa’s coastline, this Spanish Canary Island does wild landscapes like no other. Since the late twentieth century, the island has been a UNESCO biosphere reserve, and you can see why when you visit the volcanic Timanfaya National Park. You can discover the volcano’s surroundings on foot and see the amazingly colourful dried lava, or enjoy a camel ride around the park.
At most resorts in Lanzarote, you’re surrounded by spectacular natural backdrops, but at La Casona de Yaiza, the volcanic landscape is right on your doorstep! After hiking all day, relax in the outdoor pool and hot tub and soak up the mountainous scenery.
For a truly wild and uncultivated landscape, head to the island of Brac. Located in mid-Dalmatia, in Croatia. This remote destination is the perfect place to avoid the crowds and connect with nature. Hiking enthusiasts will love the challenging trek up to Vidova Gora Mountain’s summit, and will be wowed by the unobstructed view of Brac and its neighbouring islands, Hvar and Jabuka. On a clear sunny day, you can even see Italy in the distance!
Our favourite place to stay is Hotel Bol, which offers an amazing range of outdoor activities. You can rent jet skis and bikes to travel around the island, or book discounted water-sport excursions at the hotel.
