Contiki’s themed 2017 summer trips focus on food, photography, local experiences

TORONTO — Contiki’s Limited Edition Summer Series, part of its main 2017-18 Europe program, offers three unique trip styles: Munch (food), SNAP (photography) and Boutique Local, focused on going local in style with accommodations in boutique hotels.

The three new trips have limited departures, with just two dates for Munch and SNAP, and three departures of Boutique Local running throughout summer 2017. Plans are underway to expand the series and departures further into 2018 and beyond.

“The Limited Edition Summer Series is a testament to Contiki’s continued innovation,” said Sheralyn Berry, Director of Sales at Contiki Holidays Canada. “We might have 55 years in the business but we are always improving our brand and product. We know our consumers, we know their desires and their behaviours, and this collection is a direct result of that insight. We know they’ll absolutely love this product.”

From learning how to take the best selfie at night with an experienced Instagrammer in Prague to noshing on Bouillabaisse in Aix-en-Provence, here are the three new Limited Edition Summer Series trips:

  • BOUTIQUE LOCAL – 12 days, boutique accommodation and curated experiences. 
The boutique local trips are about getting up close and local with the coolest neighbourhoods of Spain and Portugal, visiting amazing restaurants, trendy local bars and generally getting the insider ticket to Salamanca, Madrid, Lisbon, Porto, Bilbao and Barcelona.
  • SNAP – 9 days, Trip manager & Instagrammer guides and once in a lifetime photo opportunities. SNAP is the Limited Edition Summer Series itinerary for those who combine a love of travel with a love of photography. Led by one of Contiki’s expert Trip Managers and an experienced Instagrammer to share tips and tricks for getting the perfect shot, SNAP will visit the Instagram gems of Salzburg, Prague, Berlin, Venice and Ljubljana.
  • MUNCH – 9 days, Trip Manager and Foodie influencer guides and amazing gastronomic experiences. Munch takes travellers on a gastronomic journey through Nice, Aix-en-Provence, Barcelona, Milan, Florence and Bologna. Cooking classes, pasta making, Tuscan dinners, market tours and wine making are all included, and a dream team of Contiki Trip Manager and a foodie social influencer is on hand to ensure only the most delicious establishments are visited.

Contiki’s full suite of Limited Edition Summer Series trips is available for sale now. The three trips are eligible for the Early Payment Discount’ of 10% (a savings of up to $820) for bookings made by Jan. 12, 2017.
