  10. Off-the-beaten Europe

  11. Thanks to our own local knowledge, as well as the expertise of handpicked local partners, many of our trips provide you with a genuine opportunity to discover the 'untrodden' trails of Europe, spanning postcard landscapes, centuries-old cultures, authentic rural lifestyles and tempting culinary delights.

  12. Complete backup & support

  13. Whether you enjoy the travelling at your own pace with a set of comprehensive maps and route notes, or prefer the camaraderie of a small group of travellers and an expert guide, all trips come with reliable local back up and 7 day support.

  14. Peace of mind through real service

  15. UTracks has offices around the world, so you can speak to a real person to get your questions answered. Know exactly what’s included, where to meet, how to train and enjoy the peace of mind that comes with booking with a company that has a solid presence beyond the internet.

  16. Flexible departure dates

  17. Many of our self guided tours begin on any day of the week allowing you to combine multiple tours to create your ideal active European getaway. Talk to us about creating your perfect self guided trip.

  18. Single travellers welcome*

  19. All tours are priced on a twin share basis. Single travellers may be paired up with a person of the same sex on some of our guided trips. Other trips require payment of a single supplement, or if you are travelling solo a single traveller surcharge. *For your safety, not all of our Self Guided tours are available to single travellers.
