The UK (England, Wales, and Scotland) is the most condensed with England serving as the“Long Island” of European lax.

2013 TOURTour Lengths logisticsStandard tour lengths range from 7-14 days including departure days on both sides of the pond;depending on number of destinations. A good rule of thumb to use is roughly 2+ days per destination withapprox. 1 day of travel between each; plus 1 day of “travel” at the start and end of the trip for flights to andfrom the USA. Longer tours can easily be arranged if desired up to 1 month for summer.Isolated DestinationsSome of our destinations are more isolated in relationship to others due to surrounding areas grow-ing at a slower pace for lacrosse. Because of this, we have identified a few locations that would bebest when scheduled as their own tour as opposed to trying to link them with multiple destinationsdue to travel distances and time. Anything is possible with your schedule...this is merely a recom-mendation from us...the guys that know the areas...very well...and have done this for a while. : ) Sight-seeing is a HUGE plus in these destinations and day trips are easily added in these countries. ∙ Madrid, Spain ∙ Copenhagen, Denmark ∙ Rome, Italy
