Take up a new hobby, push yourself to face new challenges: we take a look at the best 2022 resolutions to keep in Europe with Eurotunnel Le Shuttle

Many of us make New Year’s resolutions to get fitter, eat healthier or achieve something we’ve always wanted to. Why not combine these resolutions with travel? A Channel crossing with Eurotunnel only takes 35 minutes, so it’s quick and easy to reach Europe and make those resolutions a reality!

Winter swimming

Renowned for being incredibly invigorating and great for your health, this is a great resolution to take up if you want a real challenge. There are plenty of chilly beaches in Northern France and the Netherlands if you want to dive into the icy sea, or head to something slightly warmer – the collection of pools close to La Cascade waterfall in Sillian La Cascada in Provence. Amazing aqua-blue pools and waterfalls are perfect for a refreshing morning swim. 

Walk through nature

Forego the screens and return to nature – walking is for all ages and abilities, and Europe offers some outstanding scenery to explore. From the dizzying heights of Mont Blanc to the stunning Loire Valley, which you can also enjoy by bicycle. It’s known as the Garden of France due to the abundance of orchards, vineyards, and agriculture. Walks range from 2km strolls to harder 15km hikes. With Eurotunnel, you can even take your dog with you! Wine lovers will also enjoy Routes des Grands Crus through Burgundy, with the trail beginning in Dijon and passing south through 33 towns and villages. You can drive between the towns, and spend days walking different parts of the route. For coastal splendor, the Brittany coastal path, also known as the GR34 starts at Vitré and heads towards the English Channel, continuing west along the coast to Douarnenez. You can pick and choose the stretches you’d like to do, and in the winter months, the number of tourists will be minimal. 


Training for a marathon or half marathon takes a certain level of focus. The beauty of running is that you can do it anywhere, so why not make sure the scenery is inspiring? From the Tecno Gloe Marathon through the forested comune of Cerney-la-Ville in France, to the Coburger Winter Marathon in Bavaria with its magnificent scenery and architecture, or the unique Les Foulées du Gois, an 8km race against the tide. 

Travel more

Resolutions don’t have to revolve around fitness – perhaps you want to see more of the world, especially after a turbulent couple of years. From off-the-beaten-track France to further afield destinations in Italy or Germany, you can take your own car, set the pace, pack all you need, and experience local cuisines, culture, and sights with Eurotunnel. You can also rest assured that your carbon footprint is minimal with Eurotunnel, with rail travel far more eco-friendly than air or ferry travel.
