Albatross Tours releases summer brochure and early bird deals for Europe 2025
Edited by Travel Weekly

    Award-winning European Touring specialist Albatross Tours has released its Northern Summer 2025 brochure and early bird deals.

    New itineraries align perfectly with the traditions of Albatross tours in providing longer stays for travellers and superb inclusions. 

    This includes 3-nights in Çanakkale to explore the Gallipoli Peninsula, or a 3-night stay in Poreč, on the Istrian Peninsula.

    Their rail-tour of Switzerland includes the new Matterhorn Alpine Crossing so guests can soar across the Alps and into Italy for lunch.

    “We’re so excited to have our Summer 2025 brochure out earlier than ever to help advisors convert those long-range bookings. This combines with our Early Bird deal, on until 31 July,”  managing director Shelley Poten said.

    Albatross focuses on longer stays, which means less packing and unpacking, as well as more time at each hand-chosen experience. It also caps group sizes at 28 people, meaning more comfortable travel and a more personal and authentic experience where you can “go where the locals go”.  Added to that is a range of unique, character-filled accommodation that is set to make you client trip a truly memorable one.   

    Early Bird deals 

    With the launch of the northern summer 2025 program comes a $350 per person per tour Early Bird discount eligible to all Summer 2025 bookings made before 31 July 2024.
