So if you are independent and like to do your own thing while traveling, but enjoying having the logistics taken care of, they have an Easy Pace style to give lots of flexibility and freedom. Or if you enjoy a packed itinerary with all the must-see’s in the time you have to travel, try looking at one of their Discoverer trips. Most important thing to remember is they will take care of all the hassle so you can have more fun making memories!

This year Contiki added exciting new Limited Edition Summer Series trips that are designed exclusively for travelers looking for a more tailored experience. Comprising of small, intimate groups of 25-30 people, Limited Edition is made up of three uniquely wonderful new trips: Boutique Local, Snap, and Munch.

With their brand new series, Boutique Local is just that…local, local and more local. Restaurants for the foodiest of foodies, cocktail bar wanderings and neighborhood tours in the coolest parts of Bilbao, Lisbon and Barcelona – that’s what it’s all about. Taking in some of Europe’s trendiest and most up and coming cities, this trip focuses on going local in style. Spend your days sipping rosé in Porto, exploring the Guggenheim in Bilbao and surfing the Basque coast at San Sebastian, then sleep tight in their selection of boutique hotels – so cool it’s basically straight out of Pinterest. Not a beige square room or unimaginative hotel lobby in sight.

Are you all about raising your Instagram game at every opportunity? Do you find yourself getting up at the crack of dawn to get the perfect light for your shot? If that head’s nodding right now, we’ve got one word for you… SNAP. This Limited Edition Summer Series trip dedicated entirely to aspiring photographers, Snap will see you combining your love of travel with your love for capturing life through a lens. Led by a dynamic Trip Manager and Instagrammer duo to show you the ropes, visit the likes of Berlin, Salzburg and Venice with a small group of well-travelled, like-minded camera aficionados. Throw in perks like walking tours of the coolest neighborhoods, wine tasting, foodie famous lunches and cozy sleeps in sweet hotels, and you might just have the perfect travel creation.

Foodies unite! Contiki has created quite possibly the ultimate itinerary for those who want to nibble their way across the continent. Visiting Florence, Barcelona and the South of France (or in other words all your Mediterranean dreams), Munch is dedicated to tickling your taste buds at every opportunity. Cooking classes, pasta making, Tuscan dinners, market tours and wine making lessons will fill your days, whilst nights will be spent snoozing in comfy hotels. And who better to lead your small group of foodies than an equally passionate Trip Manager and food influencer duo. Intrigued?
