Meet the 8 travellers of the first edition of the Road Trip Project

About this project

The Road Trip Project is above all a human adventure: a duo of young Europeans embark on a journey across the continent and explore a variety of EU-supported projects and activities.

The Road Trip Project consists of 4 different routes: the Mediterranean Route: A walk through history, the Atlantic Route: Exploration and (re)discovery, the Danube Route: A symbol of unity, and finally the Baltic Route: A Journey through time and space.

The Routes

The Mediterranean Route

14 April - 12 May

  • Start point:
    Athens, Greece
  • End point:
    Lascaux, France

Countries on the Mediterranean have been home to some of the most forward-thinking civilisations in our history. Take a walk through history and soak up the style, flare and food of the Mediterranean!

The Atlantic Route

19 May - 16 June

  • Start point:
    Cabo da Roca, Portugal
  • End point:
    Rotterdam, The Netherlands

Set sail to (re-)discover! What inspired ancient navigators to set out on unknown waters? Explore the highs, lows, cliffs and mountains of Europe’s Atlantic coast.


The Danube Route

23 June - 21 July

  • Start point:
    Donaueschingen, Germany
  • End point:
    Danube Delta, Romania

The Danube River flows across more borders than any other river in the world. That’s why it’s considered as a symbol of unity. Be ready to discover what unites (and sometimes divides) the Danube’s bordering countries.

The Baltic Route

28 July - 25 August

  • Start point:
    Rovaniemi, Finland
  • End point:
    Berlin, Germany

The countries bordering the Baltic Sea may share similar geography, but history has divided them more often than not. Jump on a journey of division and union and prepare to be seduced by the people, the landscapes and the cultures.
