FAQs

  • London: Our Detour trips are minibreaks packed full of unique, local-led experiences. They’re perfect if you’re looking for a short weekend trip or just wanna spend a little more time at your destination.
  • London: You know we love social travel here. While most of our trips have large groups, the Detour trips are all about small group travel with 16 travellers (or even fewer on some itineraries!). You can check the trip page above for more details.
  • London: In classic Contiki style, your accommodation and transport are included in the trip. Plus, we’ll sort out some meals and activities that are outlined in the itinerary. That’s not all, though. You’ll also have an expert Local Host to give you an inside scoop at every destination.
  • London: All you have to do is check whether you need a visa (and apply for one if you do!), book your insurance and arrange your transport to the start location of the trip. We’ll handle the rest!
  • London: Our Detour trips are short & sweet (and loaded with fun activities). That’s why we don’t offer pre or post trip accommodation.
  • Hopfgarten im Brixental: You’ll need a moderate level of fitness for this trip since you’ll be hiking, biking and rafting. You’ll also need to be able to swim if you wanna participate in white-water rafting. There will be 1 course in the morning and 1 in the afternoon (between grade 2 & 3). Both the courses are beginner friendly.    The bike ride on Day 3 is about 25 kms long, through valleys and some steep ascents. But you can always take it at your own pace. Paragliding has a 115kg (255 lbs) weight limit, but it’s not physically strenuous.
  • Hopfgarten im Brixental: Yes. For your own safety, you must be able to swim to take part in the rafting on this trip (which is where we will spend most of Day 2).
  • Hopfgarten im Brixental: The alps are an incredible mountain range stretching across 8 Alpine countries: Monaco, France, Switzerland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Germany, Austria, and Slovenia. Perfect for skiing, biking or hiking!
  • Bucharest: Your Trip Manager will endeavour to cater for specific dietary requirements where possible. Vegetarianism, lactose intolerance, and gluten intolerance will be catered for in most instances. There are, however, some meals and activities that are fixed in advance and therefore cannot be modified to suit dietary requirements. Please use My Contiki to notify us of any dietary requirements at the time of booking. For those suffering from particular food allergies, your Trip Manager will endeavour to disclose to their fullest knowledge the main ingredients in the dishes being consumed. It is, however, your personal responsibility to ensure that you do not ingest any foods to which you are allergic.
  • Beaujolais Wine Region: We don’t provide towels on this trip. So, please remember to pack your own towel!

Don't worry: if you can swim, you're in – & before you hit the alpine waters, you'll be fully kitted out with wetsuits & safety helmets.
  • Innsbruck: We'll swing by Innsbruck for dinner en route home, a laid-back student city made famous by a medieval old town, an old Olympic Ski Jump & a Royal Palace.
  • Hopfgarten im Brixental: Jump on a bike & head out for a fully guided tour through picture-perfect Austrian mountain scenery. In a region that is all about the outdoors, this is the perfect way to take in the fresh alpine air, waterfalls, mountain streams & meadows.
