Natural Sights

If you’re not the type for the hustle and bustle of the big cities and want to see the natural beauty and wonder of the European continent there are some incredible sites to visit. There’s a lot for the natural enthusiast to see, do and enjoy throughout the continent.

Whether it is the famous Alps, that offer majestic vistas of its valleys, glaciers and mountain peaks or its water attractions of grand rivers lined with castles, tranquil lakes, splendid waterfalls, breath taking coastlines and islands with glamorous beaches, all of these await your discovery.

Europe’s roads and trails provide you access to these wonderful sites.

Europe has followed America’s lead by setting aside and preserving some of the last vestiges of wilderness and natural beauty. For centuries pristine forest and ecco systems where destroy by growing civilizations. Much of the land was converted into use for agriculture, growing populations and cities encroaching onto the natural ecco systems.  Most of all Europe’s untouched forests are gone but, Europe has preserved the few that remain and in the past decades has done much to start preserving it’s natural resources. As you travel east and north in Scandinavia, you will encounter more forests and unspoiled lands.

National Parks…

The implementation of National Parks in most European countries has preserved all areas for all to see and enjoy forever. Besides the natural beauty these parks, they offer plenty of hiking trails and facilities to camp. View Europe for more information.

Nature or Natural Parks…

In addition to national parks European countries have designated areas to be protected by long-term land planning, sustainable resource management and the limiting agricultural and real estate development. These valuable areas are preserved in their present ecological state and promoted for ecotourism purposes.

UNESCO Global Geoparks…

UNESCO Global Geoparks are single, unified geographical areas where sites and landscapes of international geological significance are managed with a holistic concept of protection, education and sustainable development. Their bottom-up approach of combining conservation with sustainable development while involving local communities is becoming increasingly popular. At present, there are 169 UNESCO Global Geoparks in 44 countries
