Combining a passion for adventure and an understanding of the millennial traveler, Contiki continues to provide a European experience that is unsurpassed in terms of value, included experiences, on the ground expertise, and downright fun.

Keeping ahead of customer feedback and millennial travel trends, Contiki has launched eight brand-new itineraries for the 2016-17 Europe brochure, adding Iceland and the Balkan cities of Budapest, Dubrovnik, Sarajevo, Belgrade and Ljubljana (just to name a few) to the portfolio of destinations where travelers can have an amazing vacation.  These include:

Best of the Balkans— a 15-day trip that travels through Split, Dubrovnik, Budva, Sarajevo, Belgrade, Romania, Budapest, Ljubljana, and Plitvice

Balkans Discovery a shorter 12-day trip option starting in Budapest and traveling through Ljubljana, Plitvice, Split, Dubrovnik, Budva, Sarajevo, Belgrade, and Transylvania.

Mini Balkan a four-day trip that includes Budapest, Ljubljana, Plitvice, and Split

Mediterranean Escape  — a 10-day trip traveling from Rome, the Amalfi Coast, and Athens designed to link to Contiki’s popular Aegean Classic or Greek Island Hopping trips (see below)

Mediterranean Escape + Greek Island Hopping (20 days)

Mediterranean Escape + 4 Day Cruise (14 days)

London Uncovered — a new five-day itinerary that offers a guided option (an alternative to Contiki’s unguided London Explorer itinerary)

Iceland — Four days during Winter with three days in Reykjavik and an inclusion to see Blue Lagoon

Here are a few reasons why no one offers more of Europe than Contiki.

More trips — Contiki offers an incredible 102 unique trip itineraries throughout Europe. Yes, that’s 102 unique trips! Travelers feeling a little too spoiled for choice can take the Contiki Travel Styles Quiz to help narrow down their ideal vacation.

More departures and more cities — Contiki offers more trips departing from more cities, meaning our travelers can see everything they want to see and choose a departure city that works for them.

More included experiences — Whether it is floating in a gondola in Venice, biking in Amsterdam, seeing the Seven Sisters Waterfall in Norway or wandering around the stunning gardens of the Palace of Versailles – Contiki’s itineraries include more of what millennial travelers want to do and see.

More Me Time — Travel is about exploration, so Contiki's trips give travelers the time to do just that. And for those who would rather stay busy, Me Time optionals are just the ticket.

More of the basics — The basics are the foundation on which incredible travel experiences are built. Included transportation, central accommodations, daily breakfasts and included meals, and an amazing team of drivers, guides and trip managers mean Contiki takes care of the important stuff so travelers can get on with enjoying themselves.
