    Hey Party People,

    The party is going to start on the 24th of July 2010,, I’m from Sydney Australia.

    I’m enthusiastic about travelling different parts of the world, Last year I had amazing time on Contiki travelling to Spain and Eastern Europe.

    I’m booked in again for 2 more Contiki trips this round, and I know we all going to have a blast though out the tour!

    Can’t wait drink up when all meet up in Copenhagen, first drink is on maishirlz for starting this thread!

    I’ll be in Copenhagen 1 day before the tour starts.

    Hey Travie,

    Welcome to the Scandi / Russian tour, Good to hear that we have a few more Aussies onboard!

    Should be a awesome trip!


    P.S make sure you hit up Maishirlz for your complementary drink before the tour starts lol

    Hi guys,
    my sis and i were booked on this trip, however she got an email today saying it was cancelled due to ‘due to operational reasons’, did anyone else get this information or are we the only ones??? not happy jan!!!!!

    Hey guys .. i’m actually going to be booking this trip on the weekend, spoke to someone from Contiki today and it seems only the Scandinavia part is cancelled, whilst the Russian leg of the tour is a definite department.

    Look forward to having a beer or 2 with you all on tour..which should hopefully be after a triumphant world cup campaign (for the Aussies!) Just need Mr Putin’s signature first to enter the country which im working on now :-)

    Hey, i just called and they have said there must be less than 20 of us wanting to do this trip in total so they have cancelled both the scandi leg and the russian leg! so annoying.. its school hols in the UK so it should have more than 20 ppl!

  • 14 May 2010 Nath_in_Dub said


    That’s a little weird .. i only spoke to someone from Contiki yesterday about this trip and the Russian leg was on .. i can see the website shows now that Russia trips leaving on the 2nd and 9th of Aug (non definite departures) are not there, but not the 26th, which is a definite departure .. will call again tomorrow to sus this out (hope to hell it’s on!)

    HI ALL,


    The 26th July Helsinki to Warsaw or Berlin is a definate departure, However the Scandinavia & Russia tour which was due to depart Copenhagen on 24th July has been withdrawn.

    I hope this clears up any confusion.

    Hi, I think the russian leg of this particular tour starts on the 2nd august, and my sister tried to book us on that trip and they said it had been cancelled too and wouldnt let her book it.

    the russian tour on the 26th is the other half of the scandi tour starting on the 17th and is a definate departure according to contiki…

    Hi guys,

    Did any of you get to do this trip after all the confusion about cancellations i’m reading?
    I’m thinking of booking for June/July 2011 with a start in Stockholm. Any advice? What can i expect in terms of accomodations, night life, local tours and shopping?

    Its between this one and the UK (which is $$$). Happy travels!
