Whether you’re kicking up powder in the Austrian Alps, surfing in Morocco, or experiencing a real African Safari, our short breaks selection has something for everyone. Add in extra special experiences for a longer trip if you like.
These are the moments you’ll write home about, but save those postcards for the plane ride home. For now there’s street food to try, national parks to explore, social events to attend… and what was that about a bungee jump?
Short breaks in Europe
City-hopping, cosy stays, unique excursions, new pals for life. These are Europe short breaks done right.
It took millions of years of erosion to create the Grand Canyon, but luckily you just need a short break to see the natural phenomenon for real. Plus countless North American travel gems while you’re at it.
In four days you could attempt to build the world’s largest stack of cards at home. But if it all comes falling down, an Inca Trail hike to the mysterious land of Machu Picchu takes just as long. Not to mention seeing baby sea turtles crawl for the first time in Tortuguero… *sobs*
Drinking coconuts with a straw in Zanzibar or cruising the Caribbean coastline? Find beach trips across the world to ease the soul, relax the mind, and treat the eyes to some spectacular sunsets.
For the adrenaline junkies and nature lovers alike. Our adventure short breaks include treks through Peru, camping in the Rockies, and rainforest lodges where you can drift to sleep to the sound of the jungle. You in? First one on the coach gets the window seat.
Tick off your bucket list with sightseeing trips in Italy, New Zealand, Kenya, and more. With expert Trip Managers by your side, you won’t miss a thing (except the tourist traps!).

Where can I go on holiday for 4 days?
There’s lots of holidays you can take, even if you don’t have a full week at your disposal. If you’re a ski fan, for example, our4-days Austria trip will see you hitting the slopes in Hopfgarten and chill at our newly-refurbished Gasthof accommodation. Paris for Christmas is another great option that will let you discover this marvellous capital along with its show-stopping Christmas festivities. Looking to do a bit of sightseeing? How ‘bout we hit up two of the coolest cities in Europe - Amsterdam and Berlin, with plenty of time for canal cruises, craft beer, schnitzels and more.
What health and hygiene protocols are in place on a trip?
The health and wellbeing of everyone who travels with Contiki has been, and always will be, our top priority.
