Mykonos, Santorini and Ios are at your disposal and with three nights on each, you have plenty of time to shop, dine, relax or party. There's also time for wining, dining and sightseeing in the capital, Athens, at the beginning and end of your island stay. The perfect combination of culture, relaxation and partying, Greek style!

The Northern Trek


15 countries \ 26 days \ from US$2549 per person

Head into the great unknown with this 26 day camping tour. Meet up in Athens and begin your adventure with stops in places like Turkey, Macedonia and Croatia before getting back on the mainstream track through Germany and Switzerland - these are just a few of the amazing countries you'll visit! The best bit though, has to be doing it the way Contiki started - a bunch of new friends, two person tents, and the open road.

I have LOADS of advice, but I can talk about my Contiki experience for days! Anything specific you want to ask? I can just ramble on, really, haha. :)
