)-- Accommodation in a 12th century German castle, a mountain top chalet in the Swiss Alps and a waterfront hotel on a Croatian island are all included in Topdeck’s summer 2011 European trips, which commence in April.
Unique accommodation is not often associated with 18-39s touring, however Topdeck’s 2011 program demonstrates that youth touring has changed considerably in recent years.
“Just like most of Generation Y, Topdeck’s passengers appreciate the experience of good quality, authentic accommodation, especially if it is sometimes a bit quirky. Topdeck firmly believes that outstanding accommodations can make the difference between a good holiday and a great one,” said Lance Batty, Director – Global Sales and Strategy, Topdeck.
Topdeck’s EuroHotel trips through the Swiss Alps stay in a traditional, alpine hotel on the slopes of Mount Rigi. Its position among fields of cows wearing traditional Swiss cowbells, with sweeping views of Lake Lucerne provides the quintessential Swiss experience.
On Pag Island in Croatia, guests enjoy the waterfront Hotel Loza, a short distance from Zrce beach, famous for its 24 hour nightclubs on the beach throughout the summer.
In Amsterdam, EuroHotel trips stay on a luxurious floating hotel, the Botel on the River Ij. Its central location enables guests to easily explore the city on foot, by tram or bike.
Overlooking the Rhine Valley town of Bacharach in Germany, the historic 16th century Stahleck Castle is well-equipped for Topdeck’s 21st century guests with Internet access, a bistro and cafe.
In Austria’s Tyrol region, Pension Mountain High is a postcard-perfect chalet, complete with window boxes of cascading petunias in summer and spectacular views across the Wilder Kaiser mountain range.
Topdeck’s base in Tuscany, Camping Girasole in Chianti offers several swimming pools, a fully equipped gymnasium and health spa, laundry, Internet cafe, three restaurants, pizzeria and bar, all surrounded by vineyards and within easy reach of Florence and Sienna.
Topdeck’s 22 day Europe Uncovered trip visits 12 countries. It includes accommodation at Mt Rigi chalet and Hotel Loza among others. The trip starts from and return to London, with weekly departures from April to September, 2011. Priced from $3980, it includes all transport, hotel accommodation, many meals, sightseeing tours, an experienced Trip Leader and many activities exclusive to Topdeck, such as a bicycle tour of Amsterdam and gourmet picnic beside the Eiffel Tower in Paris.
