We know that nothing quite beats the feeling of ultimate freedom that solo travel gives you. It’s a chance to explore the world on your own terms, set your own course and embark on your own personal journey. That being said, we know that travel is all about the people you meet, the local characters you encounter, the new best friends you meet who change your life forever. 55% of our travellers join our trips solo, so you'll travel with like-minded young people who want to make friends, experience new things and create lifelong memories. This is the best way to turn solo travel into the most social travel imaginable.
We believe that life’s greatest lessons are learned through travel.
Real life doesn’t happen when you colour inside the lines, it’s only when you break free, trust your impulses, and intentionally live with your eyes wide open, that you become the person you’re meant to be. On a Contiki tour, you’ll be surrounded by like-minded single travellers, ready to embark on the solo adventure of a lifetime but with new friends by your side. If you’re wary of travelling solo, you’ll find that with us our Trip Manager will always ensure you’re comfortable and happy, and that you always have incredible bonding experiences with other young travellers like you.
That’s why our tailor-made packages that span over 8 different travel styles make us the best people to kick off your solo tour.
Put simply, we’re the world’s leading youth travel company. With 300 trips spanning 6 continents, one thing's for sure, 100% of our solo travellers come home with new friends from around the world. No matter if it’s backpacking, camping or sailing, this is solo travel redefined. You’ll enter into the world with confidence, and return a completely different person.
