THIS IS A

SHORT TRIPS & FESTIVALS TRIP 

Sometimes the best things come in small packages. Kylie, the iPod nano (RIP), and our Short Trips & Festivals. These babies are designed to celebrate life’s best events (think music festivals, New Year parties, and Oktoberfest). Do them as standalone travel experiences or tag them onto the start or end of another Contiki trip. Available in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Latin America.
  

 


NOT FLOATING YOUR BOAT?

That’s OK, our different travel styles are all about giving you choice. We have 7 unique travel styles to pick from so whatever kind of traveller you are, from first timer to seasoned pro, we’ll bet we’ve got what you’re looking for.

Discover all our travel styles here.

SHOULD I TAKE A SUITCASE OR BACKPACK?

Again, this is all dependent on where you’re travelling to. For trips to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands, a backpack will be your best bet. Oversized suitcases or metal framed backpacks are a no-go due to luggage limitations, but you can bring a smaller bag to pack for the Galapagos, leaving your main suitcase at the hotel in Guayaquil to collect on return.

On our Australia trips which include sailing and/or 4-wheel drive trips, there is a super small luggage space so again, make sure you bring along a small bag to transfer your essentials into. Your regular luggage will be stored back at base.

On European ski trips and New Zealand trips with a ski option you have the option to bring one pair of skis and ski boots, to show off your pro skiing skills.

Other than what's mentioned above, travelling with a backpack or suitcase is totally up to you. Weigh up the pros and cons of each here.
