Why the Gift of Travel Matters So Much

Do you remember that feeling of wonder the first time you heard a different language flowing around you? The awe of standing before a monument you had only ever seen in photographs?

By giving the gift of travel, you’re passing along the opportunity for a loved one to experience the powerful emotions that only come with exploring the world. With Contiki, not only can travelers ages 18 through 35 hit the highlights they’ve been dreaming of, but they’ll also have the freedom to stumble into life’s beautiful surprises.

A Breadth of Experiences

In Europe, perfectly curated itineraries allow travelers to crisscross the continent, from Rome’s mythology-steeped ruins to the fairytale landscapes of Germany’s Rhine Valley. Expert guides and seasoned drivers make getting from one point to the next a breeze.

360-Degree Points of View

Travel is about much more than sightseeing. It’s about cruising the canals of Amsterdam, whitewater rafting in Austria’s wild rivers, exploring Paris after dark, and learning the art of leatherworking in the heart of Tuscany.

A New Appreciation for the World

Transformation is inevitable with all that Contiki offers in each day’s adventures. Marvel over nature’s treasures, including the White Cliffs of Dover and the steep slopes of Lorelei Rock, and grand architecture like Innsbruck’s Imperial Palace and St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City.

A Lifetime of Friendships

Whether going solo or alongside friends, each lively group has curious travelers from around the world — making it easy to create lasting connections. Everyone has the chance to find who they click with and let the adventures roll.

TRAVEL TIP: Contiki covers the cost of your first passport when traveling with them, and offers $75 savings on trips for students. Call us to learn more!
