Youth Groups Trips to France


Since 1966 - Leading the Way - Pioneers in Youth Tourism

Euroculture is no stranger to youth travel - we've been specialising in it for nearly half a Century! Bringing foreign children to the UK in the 1960s was a new experience for tens of thousands of our young visitors as well as the British families they stayed with. Advancing youth mobility was one of our founding aims and one we still treasure today.

Over the years, we have taken pride and pleasure in organising some amazing trips for young people from all over the world and all sorts of backgrounds for all sorts of reasons.

Groundbreaking - Breaking Down Barriers, Bringing Young People Together

Back when the Cold War was still quite hot, Euroculture was approached to devise a truly ground-breaking visit to the UK. We arranged for a group young trainee pilots from the now defunct soviet Union to stay in British families and enjoy privileged access to a US air base! Euroculture has always sought to break down barriers between nations, but it could be said that we played our part in the opening of the Iron Curtain on this occasion. Glasnost and Perestroika were in full swing and shortly afterwards the Berlin Wall had been felled.

During the early 1990s we organised two International Youth Conferences on World Environmental Problems. These brought together young people - the future world leaders and academics - from all corners of the globe to discuss some of the most challenging issues of our day. Over the course of the two events, whilst the serious scientific discussions took place, lasting friendships were forged between the delegates which have prevailed to this day.

Scout and About in France

In our 40th year in the business of youth travel, Euroculture achieved another milestone with our first Scout Group visit to France. Forty Scouts from the Apollo Explorer Group, Gravesend District, crossed the Channel to Normandy for the 2006 Remembrance weekend with some extra special events arranged by Euroculture. On 11th November, after participating in a church service, the Scouts laid a wreath at the local War Memorial before being welcomed by the Mayor of Bernieres-sur-Mer at a reception at the Hôtel de Ville. The following day, the group explored the Normandy Beaches and then met and exchanged pennants with a local senior Scout group in the city of Caen.

In more recent years, we have arranged group visits to France for various Cadet Forces, Pipe Bands, and even the Ministry of Defence.

Group Tours and Itineraries Suitable for All Types of Organisation

The style of travel we organise also lends itself well to University Societies and Sports Clubs. Our network of contacts and knowledge of France extends well beyond school-age tourism and we are able to organise a range of activities suitable for young adults of College and University. If you are organising a ski trip, a sports tour or would like to arrange a wine or champagne tasting tour, for example, please get in touch.

As well as the usual headline attractions we are also able to undertake the more complex arrangements that some tours may require. We have arranged for several groups to participate in the Last Post Ceremony at the Menin Gate, whilst one Scout group enjoyed tea with a town mayor in Normandy. We have even arranged for a group of Catering & Hospitality students to have a tour of Rungis Market to see and understand how the world's largest food market operates. Where there is a particular speciality or niche requirement, we have the know-how to make things happen.

As we are not tied to any particular operator, we can work with youth groups on any budget. Accommodation can be sourced according to budget from self-catering gîtes, dormitory-style hostels through to well known hotel chains.

Whatever your reason for considering France as the destination for a tour overseas, Euroculture is looking forward to helping you build the perfect itinerary for it. Our bespoke packages are tailor-made for you, whatever the design.
