Lufthansa World Map
The German airline has created an interactive world map that is very user-friendly, if lighter on details. This is what they say:
Relaxed entry regulations: Our interactive world map helps your travel planning. Numerous countries, such as Austria, Switzerland, Spain, Sweden or Denmark, have already returned to normality – and many more countries are relaxing their travel restrictions.

Feedback from 2022 and 2021
While it may feel like tourists will be even more of a foreign entity in Europe in 2022, it's not entirely true. Travellers from North America, the UK, and European locals have been exploring Europe's trails in 2020 and 2021. Here are some of the reviews from their experiences:
Alsace Wine Cycle Route
"We thought we would send a quick wrap up of the cycle adventure we completed last week [early August'20]. We managed the cycle notes fairly well. The hill on the way out of Andlau was a tough climb and we had a "divine ray of sunshine" at the top. The bikes were good. Each of the accommodations was good. Each hotel helped us store the bikes securely overnight.
Hats off to all of the accommodation for adapting to the new conditions which allowed us to travel. Thank you to everyone at UTracks for all your help in pulling together this trip at fairly short notice." M. & M. Maughan | UK
West Highland Way
"The route was very scenic and I found reasonably demanding. There was a good number of other walkers on the route, with whom we had friendly exchanges. The accommodation, luggage transfer and some necessary taxi transfers worked well. Due to high demand and shortage of accommodation and our particular requests, the team had worked hard to successfully tie everything together." P. Shell | UK
Ionian Islands Bike & Sail
"Due to the pandemic we were not able to travel to Croatia as planned and you very kindly organised for us to take this trip instead.
The boat was a really lovely home for a week. The cabin which was above deck was cosy and comfy with lovely cotton sheets and a private bathroom. Plenty of fresh-air wafted through during the night with doors and windows able to be propped open. The staff looked after our every need from first thing in the morning until last thing at night.
The boat was kept really clean at all times and even though we travelled during one of the worst times in history with the Covid-19 Virus in full swing, we managed to feel relaxed and almost forgot about it all. The bikes were really comfy and well maintained with ample storage in the pannier bag." Claire S. | UK
Exploring Tuscan Hilltop Towns
"I was impressed with the kindness and support of the office prior to travelling, given that the Covid affair produced extra concerns. Then I was further impressed with the detailed organisation of the trip itself. We had super accommodation in the centre of beautiful town centres, and the walking notes and the app were perfect. Thanks to all the staff involved. Would definitely use this company again." R. Akester | Newhaven
