Hey campers! It's the first day of the best summer camp of your life, and you have no time to waste. Meeting us in France you'll jump on your complimentary Arrival Transfer either from Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport or Gare de la Part Dieu Lyon Train Station and get whisked away to Contiki’s Château, otherwise known as Contiki Camp HQ.Rolling into the Beaujolais region of France amidst vineyards, you'll arrive at Contiki’s very own 16th century Château. This might just be the most decadent summer camp location you've ever seen, complete with newly-renovated bedrooms & bathrooms, an on-site nightclub, artwork in every room, a games room, and a powder room for makeup and hair. And we haven't even shown you the grounds yet - but there'll be plenty of time for that over the next week. Sleep tight, campers.<br/>

Whether you're starting your morning with sun salutations, circuits, a jog or a lie-in, make sure you fill up on breakfast this morning, because we're off for a day trip to Lake Annecy! Because what would Summer Camp be without a trip to one of the most stunning areas of natural beauty in this part of France, complete with picture perfect Old Town? After arriving in Annecy, we'll kick things off with a guided hike around the lake, taking in all of the natural beauty of the area. Then, it's time to cool down and relax with a dip in the lake, known as 'Europe's cleanest lake'. If you like things a bit more fast-paced, there are plenty of options or watersports on the lake too. This afternoon, you can check out the Old Town with colourful houses, cute boutiques and outdoor markets lining the banks of the River Thiou and Lake Annecy. It's market day in Annecy today (we timed that well), so you can stock up on fresh produce (especially cheese!) to take home with you. Of course if it's not your thing, you're always free to stay at the Château and chill. We'll all join up again tonight for a tasty Friday night included dinner, prepared onsite from fresh, local ingredients.<br/>

It's Saturday, and that means one thing: loads of weekend activities on the agenda. After your breakfast and morning routine, let's check out all the options available today. Starting off with some classic Camp Sports, we'll host our own mini Sports Day with a rolling rotation of activites for you to choose from - think volleyball, soccer, rounders and novelty games for a laugh. We'll take a break so you can find yourself some lunch, but in case you didn't get to try everything this morning, don't worry – it'll be all back on for activities again this afternoon with a second round of of mixology classes, magic lessons, Sip + Sketch, tarot card reading, and French language lessons. And just because we can, we have an extra special treat tonight: a Moonlight cinema evening with a picnic dinner, complete with locally-sourced produce and wine (we are in France, after all). As the sun goes down this evening we'll sit back, relax, and enjoy our own private group cinema under the moonlight in our Château gardens, with a glass of the local tipple beside us. Does Summer Camp get any more decadent than this?<br/>

It's the final day of our Camp Contiki weekender, and we don't know where these 4 days have gone. One thing we do know is that Summer Camps have a lot to live up to from now on! After an early breakfast it's time gather your stuff and say goodbye to Contiki Camp HQ, hopping on your complimentary departure transfer, for drop off at either Lyon-Saint Exupéry Airport or Gare de la Part Dieu Lyon.Rolling into Lyon we'll say fond farewells and go our separate ways – Campers, it's been real. But remember, Camp Contiki IS open all summer...did somebody say reunion?<br/>

Touring with Contiki

Started by one man with big dreams in 1962, Contiki now offers over 300 trips to 6 continents for 18 to 35 year olds, with the mantra #NOREGRETS. It’s their way of life; it’s about changing your perspective on the world, walking in other’s shoes, witnessing different cultures, religions, and ways of living; it’s about living in the moment, pushing past your comfort zone, challenging yourself to do the things you never thought possible.

Contiki believe that travel is so much more than just ticking boxes and saying you were there. It’s not about doing things for the sake of doing them, or seeing things just because you should. For them, travel is all about experience. It’s the number of sunsets you’ve watched with best friends, the number of ancient landmarks you’ve visited, the number of times you’ve defied your comfort zone and done the extraordinary. So that’s what their trips are all about – the #NOREGRETS experiences that will make you, the traveller, richer than your wildest dreams.

Their incredible experiences encompass all interests and cultures – bathing in the Blue Lagoon in Iceland, seeing the pyramids of Giza, walking the Great Wall of China, roadtrip along Route 66, watch the sunrise over Uluru, party in Las Vegas, snorkel the Great Barrier Reef, zipline through the Costa Rica rainforest, see the Mona Lisa, fly over the Grand Canyon or cuddle a Koala. The cost of your trip ensures Contiki take care of all your travel arrangements, accommodation, breakfasts and dinners, organised activities, plenty of free time and optional ‘me’ time activities to put your own unique stamp on your travel experience.

Contiki cater to all travellers, whether you want to cram in as many destinations as possible and experience everything or stick in one region for a while for an in depth exploration to really get under the skin of the country, they have the trip for you and many other options in between. Choose a purely water-based adventure with their Sailing, Cruise and Beach holidays, or snowy travels with the Winter holidays and even purely camping accommodation to make the most of your holiday budget but still see and experience all your destination has to offer.

Contiki is a founding partner of TreadRight, a not-for-profit foundation established by The Travel Corporation in 2008 to encourage sustainable tourism within its family of amazing travel brands. The TreadRight Foundation acts as an older, wiser sibling to Contiki, guiding them down a more sustainable path. The TreadRight Foundation supports projects that help the environment, protect and conserve ecosystems, and benefit communities. The foundation, along with The Travel Corporation brands, has donated in excess of US$2 million towards international sustainable tourism projects - a figure that continues to rise.
