BACKPACKING THROUGH EUROPE

europe-4291eurs2016

Always dreamed of backpacking through Europe? It’s a rite of passage for most, and with good reason – it’s epic! Contiki tours hit up the best places to travel in Europe and are kings of the classic backpacking Europe routes. There’s a certain freedom that comes with backpacking your way across Europe’s best countries. You’ve said your goodbyes to friends and family, your whole life is on your back and the experiences before you are ready to change your life.

Contiki are the ultimate Europe travel planner because we do it all for you! Backpacking Europe can seem daunting when you first start researching it. Will you go to Paris, London and Amsterdam? Or should you travel to Eastern Europe to discover Budapest, Greece and Prague? The choice is yours alone, but rest assured we have a backpacking Europe itinerary catered to your specific needs.

With your accommodation and best places to backpack in Europe sorted,the only dilemmais whether to bring a backpack or suitcase to Europe!

Cobblestone streets in Europe are not forgiving and it’s much easier to board a boat in the breath-taking bays of Croatia with a backpack.

Backpacking around Europe and backpacking Ireland and Great Britain are usually done over a long period of time (there is a lot of ground to cover of course!) but you can spend as long or as little as you like and do a few countries at a time, or in one big trip. Costs can vary depending on when you want to travel but the best thing about Contiki is that we take care of all your accommodation and transport (and entry to some of the best sights) so you avoid all the hassle that comes with peak season.

So grab your best travel backpack for Europe and find the experience of a lifetime on a Europe backpacking trip!
