Measure in friends rather than miles

The Unity Express takes you to 24 countries that are all indicated on the map above.

It’s an amazing journey of more than 11.000 km long. We will stop in 14 cities with overnight stays in 8 of them. The overnight stays are realized in collaboration with the CouchSurfing community. As you can see on the map we’ll go along oceans, through mountains, over plains and drive along fjords.

Due to insufficient railroad infrastructure and governmental restriction, we can’t visit all the European cities. Nevertheless you’ll cross from Sassnitz, Germany to Trelleborg, Sweden by ferry with the whole train. After this, you’ve visited more places and met more people than the average European pigeon. And moreover, you got a better understanding of Europe.

Notice: this new route is currently being reviewed by our train partners. Minor changes can occur while they test if the time schedule we chose is really possible.
