Contiki never fails to exceed my expectations! The tour manager (Greg) and driver (Marty) were exceptional and went above and beyond to make this trip special. Coupled with local guides in each city, I could not recommend this experience more highly.

Trip Manager, Haron, was very knowledgeable and truly loves his job! Good accommodations, good food, the parks are amazing, but would have preferred a bit more physical activity so that we were not sitting in a car all day.

European Contrasts was amazing! 29 days of travelling with an amazing tour leader who shared so much knowledge of the beautiful countries we were in, experiencing so many different things with a small family of strangers. We saw so many iconic sights, but the most amazing experiences were the Contiki stays - We would never have seen or stayed in these beautiful places if it wasn’t for contiki, and they were my favourite part of the whole trip! The contiki staff at these stays make the experience so much more meaningful! Having Greece in the middle of the trip was so nice and relaxing and it was definitely what we needed to refuel for the next half of the trip!read less

Itinerary

Arrive Stockholm

Home to gorgeous people, incredible fashion, the biggest city in Sweden is sure to turn it on from the moment you arrive. We suggest getting right into it from the get go, to feel like a local in an instant! For some local charm, hit up the Gamla Stan & Södermalm (right in the Old Town) and check out the colourful buildings and cool vibes that the place is famous for. In this city that oozes cool, we suggest finding a local spot for a spot of jazz music over a beer or a coffee, no doubt contemplating just how you might go about living here permanently. Tonight, meet up with the squad to get the excitement levels at an all time high for what's in store as we explore this pumping part of the world.

Stockholm to Overnight Baltic Ferry

Soak up your last dose of Swedish cool this morning before we take our next journey...by sea! A luxurious cruise will be carrying us away from Sweden on the hunt for Helsinki.

Overnight Baltic Ferry to Helsinki

You only have to look to Finland's quirky array of annual festivals - Wife Carrying World Championships? - to understand that this place has character. Some sources claim Finland is also home to the most heavy metal bands per capita in the world, and the heaviest coffee consumption in the world - we love these people! Between hanging with locals, be sure to rummage the South Harbour Markets, see the city's many sites, & find time for some sauna hangs.

Helsinki to St. Petersburg

Now that you have 20 new Finnish friends and a whole new outlook on this totally underrated European capital, it's Russia time.
Our first stop on the Russian map is the imperial city of St. Petersburg. Built by the Italians, this city is a unique blend of Europe and Russia, unfathomably grand & made pretty by canals - which you can opt to explore tonight for the best view of the city's palaces by night. You'll be pleased to hear we have 2 full days to uncover its enigmatic ways.

St. Petersburg

Today is a full dose of history, learn about the Romanov's and its founding by Tsar Peter the Great as well as all the goss on the Tsar's of Russia. See one of the world’s top art collections at the Hermitage gallery; kick it in St. Petersburg’s main street of Nevsky Prospekt; find ways to tap into glitzy new Russia; and enjoy history lessons at the city's incredible list of monuments.  And all that exploring could call for a beef stroganoff where it was invented, as well as a vodka or 2 - in the name of culture, of course.

St. Petersburg

Visit Peterhof Gardens, known as the Versailles of Russia will give you an outdoor lovers fix, including a beautiful gold fountain cascade. Use the rest of the day to take on the city, and tonight, you could choose to go local with folklore show for some sights and sounds of Russia.

St. Petersburg to Novgorod

So long St. Petersburg! Thanks for your hospitable welcome into the world of Russia. You've left us wanting a whole lot more.
Now that we've got a taste of Russian city life, it's time to change the pace and step into the quieter town of Novgorod. Suffering two unfortunate eras at the hands of evil dictators, the town is now enjoying its time of slow life and peace. Soak up its new found happiness and explore its epic history - complete with a very large bell.

Novgorod to Moscow via Klin

After being submerged in small town feels, we'll be quite ready for the grandeur capital of Moscow. Time to hit the road!
En route to Moscow we'll stop off in Klin, home of Russian composer Tchaikovsky. We can't resist the chance to see the place that inspired a man to make Swan Lake and The Nutcracker.
Before you go screaming your way to the Aladdin's palace like monument of Saint Basil's Cathedral, let us settle in to our Moscow digs and hear of the many incredible things this city has on offer - and there are many. Hence we have two full days here - joy!!

Moscow

Oh good morning Moscow. Diving right in is the way to do it, so we'll start off with a guided city tour of all the sights, including one of the countries most colourful and quirky buildings St Basil's Cathedral. Chance to visit Lenin’s tomb followed by free time to explore more of what Red Square and this city have to offer.

Moscow

After the underground, probably the most famous metro in the world is Moscow's. Get up close with our local guide, uncovering the fascinating communist artworks that make it what it is today. The city keeps on giving today, with some free time to roam, before a guided visit to the famous Kremlin Museums, then the option to view the Romanov’s collection of Faberge Eggs, carriages, clothes and jewels at the Armoury.

Moscow to Minsk

Moscow to Minsk, how's that for a cute sounding journey? Though it will be hard to leave Russia, the lure of Belarus will help ease the pain.
Rebuilt by Stalin after World War II, Minsk has become a model of communism & a statement of resilience. Manicured gardens and pretty water features spot the wide open spaces of the city; a great place to sit back and chill.

Minsk to Warsaw via Brest

Laters Minsk, we have one more country to cover before this epic road trip comes to an end. Poland, we're coming for you!
Before we head on to energetic Warsaw, we'll visit one of the most important Soviet World War II war monuments; the castle like monument of Brest fortress.
Perogies are Polish dumplings and a glass of compote somewhere within Warsaw's lively cafe scene should be your introduction to this emerging European capital. We have all day tomorrow to explore, so there's no need to start whipping through the to-do list.

Warsaw

You didn't think we were winding down now, did you? Gosh no. Not when we have an old Jewish Ghetto to explore and a Chopin piano recital up for grabs. A renowned musical city, keep your ears open day long and see what sound pleasures you stumble upon.

Depart Warsaw

That's it for our extravaganza through Scandinavia and Russia. By now you will be pulsating with new knowledge & forever memories. Pass the tissues to the left hand side; 14-days together is enough to get a group gripped together like glue.
