The First Contiki

Fifty years ago, we created our first story when a young New Zealander embarked on a journey across Europe. He got a minibus and gathered together a group of friends to travel with him, and Contiki Holidays was “born”. We're the original travel company for 18-35s and we've been traveling the world with people like you since '62.

Amazing Places to Stay

Whichever way you choose to travel, we'll hook you up with some special places to stay.

You can even plan your trip around festivals and events, such as Oktoberfest and New Year's Eve.

Your Free Time

No journey is complete without some time to relax and reflect and find your own path. That's why our trips are packed with loads of free time and opportunities to either hang with your travel mates or go and discover your own way.


Total Freedom

Free time is about doing what you're into as you take in new places and cultures. Hunt down some local music, spend some time lounging, biking, shopping or just exploring. All of our trips are planned with loads of free time, so you can head off and do your own thing. Need some inspiration for things to do? Just ask the ultimate travel experts – your Contiki Crew.

Optional Excursions

We've hand picked plenty of exciting optional activities as well, so you can get even more out of your free time. Go wine tasting in the Rhine Valley, helicopter over the Grand Canyon, or dive the Great Barrier Reef. We negotiate great prices and organize it all, so it's easy to personalize your trip.

We know... the authentic places outside the tourist trail.
