Travel is an experience best shared with others - either with people you already know, or with an entirely new squad that'll quickly become your travelling besties. And with a Contiki trip, you get to experience social travel at its best. Start your trip solo but end your journey with enviable memories, fave friends, and a new group chat!
Contiki is all about living life with #NoRegrets. They’re the original travel company for the young, wild, and free explorers of the world, exclusively for 18 to 35 year-olds, offering over 300 trips worldwide. Whether you’re travelling alone or on a guys and girls getaway trip, Contiki knows the art of social travel. And the bonds you form from a Contiki vacation? Yeah, that can last a lifetime - and leave you with a bunch of new soulmates with foreign couches to crash on, peeps to tag in memes on the daily and new partners in crime to travel the world and make memories with forever.
They’ll give you life-changing experiences. A Contiki trip allows you to develop friendships and relationships that are out of the ordinary and come from a mutual love of travel and exploring the world.
Experience a Contiki in every corner of the world, and find that person who will make your heart melt (maybe over a glass of Merlot). Contiki does all the planning, you just focus on making endless memories. So the question is, where will you travel, and WHO will you meet on a Contiki trip?
Ready for an adventure of a lifetime? Start with Contiki's two-week long Spanish Spree trip in Spain. Walk the cobbled streets of Madrid while taking in gorgeous art, culture, and museums. Plus, mingling until Midnight over tapas and local red wine at sidewalk bars with locals is probably the coolest thing you’ll do!
Granada is a place you never want to leave. It’s a destination for lovers, explorers and architecture enthusiasts. You’ll get to see the famed Alhambra fortress with the best views of the city. You’ll never have FOMO again after experiencing this view. A truly picture-perfect moment.
Take a bike tour through Barcelona with your honey on the handlebars. Then, hang out by some of the world’s best beaches. And walk along the Gothic Quarter and La Rambla district. Pretty much as cool as it sounds! You’ll be sending ‘wish you were here’ Snaps throughout the trip.
What’s not to love about Ibiza? The world’s best DJs play in Ibiza. Clubs are open late, and the music practically flows through you. Ibiza is world-renowned for its friendly people, incredible music, and the best nightlife. Yep, even Paris Hilton DJed in Ibiza. With crystal clear waters and chilled out vibes, the island is home to Contiki's new Ibiza & Beyond trip for a reason. It also has a super cute old town where you can take a leisurely stroll with ice cream in hand before you get ready for a night out in the best club scene.
When Big Ben’s clock strikes Midnight, London comes alive. During the day, visit London’s thriving museum scene. Step into one of the charming little bookstores and pick up a gift for your fam back home. Maybe you’ll even bump into Harry and Meghan on their way to one of the many trendy clubs in London’s Mayfair or SoHo district.
Want some serious culture? Take in one of the top-rated musicals in the city’s West End, and then just a few streets over walk into the liveliest and buzziest bar scene to raise a pint or two with the locals and travellers.
The ultimate romantic and cute AF city. Venice is one of those cities that’s so beautiful, it doesn’t even seem real.
Picture yourself and bae strolling through one of the piazzas, or on a gondola ride on one of Venice’s many canals. You’ll find hidden lanes, colourful bridges and epic Venetian dinners. Perfect for your new-found romance or a girls night out!
Ciao, Italy! The streets of Rome are filled with romance, adventure and so much history. From the Trevi Fountain to The Vatican, and the Pantheon, Rome offers so much to do for any crew.
Rome is truly about living and enjoying life - gelato, espresso, tiramisu, and more pizza than you could ever wish for await. On Contiki's Simply Italy trip, you'll get to go to an Italian cooking class and show off your pasta making skills to your bae.
Champagne, Escargot and a late-night stroll by the River Seine? Romance done right. Parisian lattes and chocolate will make any heart melt.
On a Contiki trip, you can even get the exclusive Paris by Night tour, endless romance at the Moulin Rouge dinner and theatre (cue Ewin McGregor sing-a-longs). And who can resist the dazzling lights of the Eiffel Tower by night? Not only will it light up your photo feed, but probably spark a little romance too. Paris is the city of love - and friendship and fun. La vie est belle!
The colours of Santorini are literally perfect. Explore charming fishing villages, shops, and white sand beaches while enjoying authentic olives, ouzo and friendly people!
Santorini is what dreams are made of, with the iconic white and blue-domed buildings that don’t even need a filter. It’s also one of the three sun-kissed islands that Contiki's two-week long Greek Island Hopping trip visits. Santorini is home to the spot for the famed Oia sunset which makes for an epic photo and a lifetime of memories, no matter who you’re sharing it with. You can even lounge on the beach for the day or stroll through the streets of Fira with your crew.
Have you seen the beautiful colours of Mykonos? It’s the real-life version of the heart eyes emoji. You’ll be feeling the love on the island of Mykonos, reminiscent of a beautifully filtered photo. Except you’ll get to live it in real life. Let go and dance 'til dawn on the beach, or have a drink and chill in Little Venice, the quintessential waterside spot.
Spend a romantic night out, all glammed up at a classical concert in Vienna. The Schnaps Museum (yes you read that right, Schnaps) is just one of the many experiences you'll be ticking off your bucket list on the 13-day Eastern Road trip.
Take a shot or two with your besties. Then head over to the elegant State Opera House which will take you back to a classical time. #TBT for real. And have you heard about Viennese coffee? Because, omg, the love of coffee is real here. Paired with the chocolate Sachertorte (the most famous Viennese cake!), some background street music, and out of this world architecture, love is swirling in the air!
Prague is known for beautiful architecture and beer! There are plenty of rooftop bars where you can kick back with a famous Czech beer and a spectacular view of Prague’s Old Town Square, and the Astronomical Clock. Cool things to brag about to your friends back home!
