What’s the Road Trip Project?

The Road Trip Project is a European travel experience that will take 8 individuals on 4 routes across the continent between Spring and Summer 2018.

Four duos will embark on a European road trip in a minibus. Along the way, they will meet locals and experience the local vibe, discover projects that change people's lives for the better, and explore unknown places and amazing landscapes.

More about the project


The Road Trip Project extends over 4 main routes across the continent, approximately 12.000 km.


14 April - 12 May

The Mediterranean Route

  • 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!


19 May - 16 June

The Atlantic Route

  • 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.


23 June - 21 July

The Danubian Route

  • 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.


28 July - 25 August

The Baltic Route

  • 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.
