Road Trip Project Season 1


4 routes, 12 000 km, one Europe.

During spring and summer 2018, 4 duos of travellers embarked on a journey across the continent and explored a variety of projects and initiatives enabled by the EU.

Luisa and Louis, Yldau and Fabian, Susann and Kenneth, Luna and Achilleas were the first ever Road Trip Project travellers, selected among 2000 applicants.

Their experience brought them to 24 European countries along 4 successive routes: the Mediterranean (the route of the roots), the Atlantic (the route of great explorers), the Danube, (the route of great nature and shared resources), and the Baltic Route (a route through time and space).

The Mediterranean Route

14 April - 12 May 2018

  • 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 2018

  • 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 2018

  • 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 2018

  • 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.
