We bring travellers together to discover the world

More about us

Our trips are about including more: more unique experiences, more local insights and better transport and accommodation. Find out more about how the value we offer just can't be beat.

Through our partnership with TreadRight, we're committed to sustainable travel. We want to spread awareness about the issues facing wildlife, the planet and the communities we visit while empowering young travellers to step up and make a difference.

Our values are what make us, us. These are the words we live by, and they impact everything we say and do.

We've been around since 1962, when a group of young people arrived in London with a dream to explore as much of Europe as possible. A deposit on a minibus and an advert on a noticeboard later, Contiki was born. This is our incredible story.

You can join trips on your own, in a group or with a partner. No matter your preference, our trips allow you to share unforgettable experiences with young travellers just like you. We’ve seen it time and time again: travelling with us creates unique social bonds that last long after the trip finishes.

Travel isn’t just about where you go, it’s about what you do when you get there. That’s why our trips include loads of real, local and unique travel experiences that make every day one to remember. Plus, we have our Free Time Add-Ons, optional extras that you can pay for during your trip.
