Europeans are in a fortunate position because they have the most powerful passports in the world. In addition, dozens of countries have signed visa-free agreements with the European Union, where we can stay for up to three months. If we want to enjoy the hospitality of a distant country for a longer period, we can choose from this list of the best places.
Fiji: Snorkelling in the turquoise waters
Those who really want to leave the familiar continent behind for a longer period of time can spend four blissful months in the Pacific archipelago, known for its pristine beaches and exciting diving sites, the perfect place to relax and unwind. Having exhausted the possibilities of the larger islands, Vanua Levu and Viti Levu, we can explore three hundred smaller islands even by snorkeling.
Armenia: Biblical Mountains and Brandy Tasting
With an EU passport, you can spend one hundred and eighty days a year without a visa in Armenia, a mandatory program for history lovers, who can discover many World Heritage sites there, from the medieval Hagbat monastery complex to 7th-century Zvartnotsz. cathedral.
Plus, the landscape is impressive, from the tranquility of Lake Sevan to the biblical Mount Ararat, and let’s not forget the locally produced wine and brandy aged in oak barrels.
Deir Hajabat Complex
Mexico and Panama: a year’s break in Central America
Both Mexico and Panama offer 180-day visas, so you can spend an entire year abroad together.
If you venture past the party city of Cancun, you’ll be rewarded with the sparkling cenotes of Tulum, the Mayan ruins of the Yucatán Peninsula, and the vibrant arts scene of Mexico City. If we travel abroad, we can rest in Panama, on the white sandy beaches of the San Blas Islands and relax in the green jungle of Volcán Baru National Park.
Great Britain: Work and Travel
Despite Brexit, you can still stay in the country for up to six months with an EU passport, and during this time you can build your business at business meetings, events and conferences, for those who travel not just to relax. In addition to London, of course, we should also explore other cities, such as Manchester and Liverpool, and we could take a scenic camping trip in the Lake District or Wales.
Canada: Culture and Nature
We can also stay for half a year in the northern country full of sparkling cities and stunning landscapes. Adventure seekers can enjoy the Rocky Mountains or ski in Whistler, while foodies head to Toronto and music lovers head to Montreal.
For those who want to taste it all, Vancouver, surrounded by places, forests and beaches, could be the perfect choice.
Peru: Among the waterfalls, on the Inca trails
During the maximum stay of 183 days, after Machu Picchu, the Inca Trail in the Andes offers more things worth exploring. The country is truly brimming with stunning natural attractions, from the mystical Rainbow Mountain to Lake Titicaca to the majestic Jukta Falls.
Georgia: mountains and beaches
The small country provides citizens of nearly a hundred countries with a one-year visa-free stay. This gives you plenty of time to explore the Caucasus Mountains, filled with picturesque villages and medieval watchtowers, and then you can take a well-deserved break on the Black Sea coast before heading to the capital, Tbilisi, where the fantastical ancient buildings contrast with the city. Repurposing former industrial landmarks.
If you are moving within Europe, your quality of life can improve even more in this country, and if you are going with your family, these are the best destinations.
