What's this trip about?

    Thrillseekers, unite! Geysers might erupt on this 6-day Iceland adventure trip, but the active volcanos we'll visit won't (probably...) White water rafting and glacier hikes will keep our adrenaline pumping, plus a trip to the mysterious Secret Lagoon. And don't worry, you'll also get a lot of time to relax and re-charge. Soaking in the rooftop hot tubs at our Special Stay accommodation, perhaps? To be fair, you'll likely feel pretty chilled after your 3-course dinner of Icelandic cuisine with the group on Day 1. By the time the trip is over, you'll be floating home with a full camera reel and a lifelong love for the land of fire and ice.

We’re firm believers that life’s greatest experiences are made better by the people you share them with. That’s why Contiki invented group travel for young people in 1962 and we’ve spent the past 53 years perfecting it. You’ll explore amazing destinations with a group of 18-35 year olds from around the world who share your passion for adventure, good times and creating memories that define what it is to be young, wild and free.

No two travellers are the same and we know that, which is why we offer eight unique ways to explore the world. We have a number of options to choose from to create a vacation that’s perfect for you, from budget to accommodation style.

We're all about exploring the world with like-minded people, which is why we only run trips for 18-35 year olds, to celebrate being young, spirited and curious. You can expect to join a group of 18-53 awesome people from around the world on our Europe, Australia, North America and New Zealand trips, and in Asia and Latin America it's all about small group adventures with up to 25 travellers. Don't worry if you're not traveling as a couple or with a friend from home – though there are plenty of pairs, 50% of our travellers set off solo, meaning you'll have a ton of opportunities to make new friends.

With over 270 trips around the world and plenty of departure dates to work into your schedule, you'll never be short of options on where to go for your next great adventure.

Everything about Contiki is deeply rooted in our core values ‘Make Every Moment Count’ and ‘We’re about people’.
