Volcanoes, glaciers, hot springs, black beaches, waterfalls, and towering mountains await your Icelandic adventure. Travel worry-free knowing you are visiting the safest country in the world.
Paris hardly needs an introduction. Nearly every traveler frequenting Europe has been to Paris or plans to visit one day. Endless museums, landmarks, art, and food draw millions of travelers to this city year after year. Take in the sights from the top of the Eiffel Tower before enjoying a river cruise to view the city from a unique perspective.
London is right there with Paris and is on every European traveler’s bucket list. Home to a rich history, royal landmarks, and double-decker buses, London is one of the most visited destinations in Europe. Travel Off Path recently reported that it may be difficult to book flights to London. However, this was primarily because of British Airways and London Heathrow. PLAY flies into London Stansted and will not experience the same issues.
Home of the best Guinness on Earth, Dublin is worth visiting at least once in your lifetime. The city has an extensive history and many landmarks to explore, such as Dublin Castle or the Book of Kells exhibition at Trinity College. Dublin is an excellent base to explore more of the surrounding area, such as Glendalough, which lies about an hour south of Dublin. Walking through this beautiful slice of the country will have you wondering if you’ve stepped into a fairy tale!
Fantastic nightlife, rich history, great food, better beer, and incredible museums make Berlin a must if you are headed to Germany. Make sure you visit these top 7 places in Berlin, including Brandenburg Gate. For those on a budget (these are budget flights, after all), check out Travel Off Path’s guide on how to visit Berlin on a budget!
Denmark was one of the first countries to drop all Covid entry requirements and is considered the third safest country in the world. The city has excellent transportation, so getting around to check out all the sights is easy. Make sure to visit Rosenborg Castle, a travelers’ favorite.
