Do Father's Day, The European Way Featured

Celebrate Father's Day by indulging in the best Europe has to offer.

Whether your father loves the great outdoors or prefers a quiet meal made from the freshest ingredients, there are destinations across Europe that will give him a day to remember. 


Hike in Switzerland


An afternoon navigating the trails of the Swiss Alps is the perfect way to celebrate the most outdoorsy of fathers. Nowhere else in the world will you find such breathtaking views paired with charming inns that make for a thrilling yet cozy weekend. Spend the morning enjoying a traditional Swiss breakfast of freshly-baked artisan bread with an assortment of jams, honey, butter, and cheeses. Step outside and take in the spectacular scenery as you are greeted by a local guide who knows each twist and turn of the mountain trails. Treat your father to a relaxing, rustic experience for the entirety of Father’s Day weekend, or simply go on a day hike. Whichever you choose, the abundance of greenery and fresh air will make for an incredible experience for dad.

Beer Tasting in Prague


An evening spent tasting the finest craft beers is ideal for the ale aficionado. Prague is known for light beers rather than heavy lagers and will make for a refreshing evening full of flavour. Budweiser, Pilsner Urquell, and Staropramen are well-known, must-see breweries, but venture off the familiar path and visit smaller bars for a more local feel. Nota Bene is both a restaurant and a beer point, with a total of thirteen on tap. The cozy seating arranges and brick walls welcome guests and the menu awakens their taste buds. Another favourite is Zly Casy, which has forty-eight beers on tap and a delicious selection of pub food.
