Our new group sizes vary for the best experience in every destination, whether it's a full crew for city adventures and dress up parties at our French château, or an intimate bunch of 8 to sail the south coast of Turkey in a traditional wooden gulet.

Trips with 15 people or less

On our Sailing trips in Greece, Turkey and Croatia, you’ll be sharing with 15 people or less to a boat.

Do it on: Turkish Sailing

Picture yourself floating in azure seas and soaking up the rays by day, eating home-cooked meals prepared on board the boat, lapping up the sunshine between afternoon snorkels, then turning it up for open air parties by night.

Trips with 15-30 people

You’ll find trips of 15-30 people for specialist locations or experiences, like our Europe train trips, sailing along the Nile in Egypt, and travelling to Iceland, Africa and the Middle East.

Do it on: Rome to Barcelona by Train

You’ll still get the group vibes you’re looking for, (friends for life, always-ready camera crew, pre-bungy jump pep squad), with the added benefit of limited-occupancy experiences and accommodation - like whizzing cross-country on scenic trains or learning to make pesto in Cinque Terre, and staying at the plush Hotel Poet in La Spezia.

Trips with 30+ people

Our classic Contiki trips are more than 30 people, with a max of 53 and an average of about 45, depending on the season and trip.

Do it on: European Trail

Why is this still our most popular way to travel? Because travel is better together, and in these groups you’ll become part of a global family, inspiring each other, growing together and leaving with lifelong friends.
