Overview

Visit Amsterdam, Munich, the Swiss Alps, and Venice on this epic European program designed specifically for older teens. Join us for the ideal mix of insider knowledge, travel know-how, and fun as our groups winds its way by train through some of the best of the continent!

Journey through four European countries and discover what it really means to backpack Europe with Travel For Teens! Our approach is rooted in the classic backpacker strategy – travel by rail, explore cities with a wide variety of daily choices, and leave ourselves open to the spontaneous possibilities that every day brings. This is our original Older Teens trip and is a classic combination of some of the best cities and natural beauty in Europe. We will begin with the canals of the north in quaint Amsterdam and travel all the way down to the canals of the south in charming Venice. In between, there will be plenty of time to explore famous sites such as Anne Frank’s House and fairytale castles in Munich. Take a guided tour of the Van Goh Museum, and get the adrenaline pumping with adventure activities such as hiking and canyoning in the Swiss Alps.

Our Older Teens trips are specially designed for high school students who want to gain a global perspective before heading out into the “real world”. We are all about a hands-on approach to travel, where we go beyond the casual tourist experience, take public transportation, and learn how daily life really is in each place we visit. We provide a unique and carefully crafted itinerary that allows for more challenges and independence. We encourage teens on these trips to learn how to use a Eurail pass along with other handy travel skills so that they become confident and able to take on even more of the world in the future!

This was my second trip with Travel for Teens and I was just as amazed by this one! The councilors are so knowledgeable when it comes to travel and made everything so much easier, especially for teens leaving the country for the first time. It's always scary to travel without anyone you know, but the councilors make everyone so comfortable with each other and you end up leaving trips with lasting friendships. Through my TFT trip, I was able to see so many different parts of Europe that I never thought would be possible in one trip. I tried different foods from every culture and interacted with locals. On TFT trips, you see the major landmarks in each city, but also the smaller, locally loved hidden gems. I always come back from my TFT trips with too many incredible stories, my friends get sick of hearing them! Now all I want to do is travel and hopefully study abroad some day because TFT opened my eyes to the world.

My trip with Travel for Teens to Amsterdam, Munich, Switzerland and Venice was one I’ll remember for my entire life. The people I meet and the places I saw were ones that will stay with me my entire life. From seeing the city of Amsterdam while floating down the canals to canyoning through the Swiss Alps, we saw beautiful sights in adventurous and fun ways. We strolled the streets of Venice and engaged ourselves in the italian cuisine, and in Germany explored the Bavarian alps while bike riding. The program and counselors were supportive and knew what they were doing, and always made sure we were having fun and always in a good mood.

In July 2018, I was given the opportunity of a lifetime: to travel across Europe with amazing kids my age and outstanding councillors. This trip showed me beautiful parts of the world I longed to see since I was a little girl. Not only were the people, accommodations and food incredible, but also the activities. Like canyoning down a mountain side in the middle of the Swiss alps, paddle boating in the canals of Amsterdam and riding my bike on a beautiful trail just at the foot of the Neuschwanstein castle to a lake where we could swim to the middle and be facing the German hillside with 2 beautiful castles. Going on this trip, I can now tell my friends that I’ve traveled across Europe and I’m not even done high school yet. It was truly an incredible experience and I would totally recommend it for any teenagers aspiring to travel.
