These new trips will be joining the ranks of 32 existing trips that Contiki offers in North America.

The new program will also see Contiki including glamping accommodation, defined as camping meets modern luxury, on select trips to the U.S. as part of its  “Special Stay” offering – a selection of exclusive you-can-only-get-with-Contiki accommodation that includes the likes of their Gasthof Schoneck in Austria, Jungle Rafts in Thailand and the famous Château de Cruix (a.k.a the “Contiki Château”) in the Beaujolais wine region of France.

“North America is an incredibly diverse region with countless opportunities for adventure,” said Sheralyn Berry, president of Contiki Canada. “We know young Canadians are increasingly interested in off-the-beaten-track destinations and choosing glamping as their preferred type of accommodation, so it’s exciting to not only be able to offer two brand new and lesser-explored destinations with our Alaska and Pacific Northwest trips, but also our new glamping experiences in the Great Smoky Mountains and Zion National Park. Clients travelling with Contiki should prepare for a road trip of a lifetime!”

Stay in style

Unique accommodation is a key selling feature for agents looking to talk to their clients about Contiki’s USA & Canada program. 

The new and improved trips for the region offer new Instagram-worthy glamping experiences in Zion National Park and the Great Smoky Mountains. For two nights, clients sleep in safari-style tents, featuring real beds, luxury bathrooms and cafe-style dining options. 

Other trips in the region include overnights in a Bass Lake summer camp with swimming pool and rustic cabins, and a picturesque chalet in Banff complete with indoor pool and sauna.

The new trips also feature an impressive collection of North America’s spectacular National Parks, checking off the continent’s six most popular parks including Yellowstone - the world’s first National Park - the Canadian Rockies, and the new additions of Denali and St Elias National Parks in Alaska. 

Two brand new dedicated National Park camping adventures give young Canadians the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in nature; showcasing the best of Yosemite National Park and the best of the Southwest National Parks, including Bryce Canyon National Park, Monument Valley and Zion National Park.
