You can’t fail to have noticed that there’s a major sporting event in the UK this summer, but if it’s not quite your cup of tea, there are plenty of other thrilling tournaments taking place across Europe. What’s more, cheap flights are available to take you to the heart of all the action.

Red Bull Cliff Diving, Portugal, 20th-21st July

The small Portuguese islet of Vila Franca provides one of the world’s best natural cliff diving environments, with athletes able to perform their dives directly off the rocks. On cheap flights to Portugal you’ll be able to witness all of the adrenaline-fuelled action, but don’t forget your sunscreen as Portugal’s weather will be in its prime. 

La Tomatina, Spain, 29th August

Although not strictly a sporting event, to the locals of Spain La Tomatina, or the ‘World’s Biggest Food Fight’ comes very close! On 29th August a hundred tonnes of over-ripe tomatoes will arrive in the town of Bunol for thousands of people to throw at each other. There are no winners, unless you count those with the dirtiest clothes, but everyone has a lot of fun so make time for La Tomatina after arriving on cheap flights to Spain. 

Islas Canarias Santa Pro, Lanzarote, 23rd-28th October 

On cheap flights to Lanzarote from this October you can take in the excitement of one of Europe’s best surfing competitions. Almost 100 of the best surfers in the world will be hitting the waves in Lanzarote, whilst you sit back, watch and take in some wonderful late-year sunshine.
