Do you want to relax on beautiful sandy beaches in Europe, or do you want to go hiking and explore majestic mountains? It is often hard to choose between these two attractive options, but there is a way.

You wake up in the morning with a fascinating view of beautiful natural scenery, you put on your hiking boots and go on an adventurous trip to the mountains. In the evening, you return exhausted, so you hit the beach, but since you have a last drop of energy you go out into the sea, lie down on your lounger and enjoy sunset over the sea.
