Europe Tours

Technically speaking, Europe is just a subcontinent and doesn't even make up one fifth of the Eurasian landmass. Nevertheless, we consider our continent as a separate entity. Historically, culturally and politically we probably have a few things in common.

But what exactly? The differences seem to prevail – between the Scots and the Greeks, Lapland and Spain.

For quite a while now travelling freely through Europe has become easier. So now is a good time to come and find out what unites us and what makes us different. And while you're at it you will drive through some stunning countryside.

After a short break and a number of improvements regarding our product and procedures for the english speaking market, Umfulana is back.

For the moment we are still adding tours regularly, so keep checking for new sample itineraries. If you haven't found what you are looking for, feel free to contact us with your ideas.

Europe Tours

We have been offering trips through Europe since 2004: most of them by rental car, a small number by train.

Wherever possible we use traditional, boutique-style hotels, inns and B&Bs.

If you want to get to know Sicily, you should try staying in an old olive mill.
In the Loire Valley counts unlock their castle-doors for ordinary guests. A privilege which for centuries had been reserved for the nobility.
And those waking up to the sound of the waves outside their bedroom window in a southern English cottage want to be nowhere else in this world.

Our Europe tours are designed to inspire the discerning traveler. Below are examples of self-drive itineraries for exploring Europe in a rental car. We will gladly personalize these itineraries for you.
