Backpacker style trips
Stay in authentic, trendy hostels on fast-paced, multi-country tours.
Our backpacker style trips—Ultimate Europe, Grand Tour of Europe, European Summer, and Highlights of Europe—are all 24 days or longer. (Don’t worry, you can bring more than a backpack.) On these trips, you’ll stay at hostels and share a room with five or more fellow travelers. Our curated hostels offer a fun atmosphere with sweet common areas and outdoor spaces. Bathrooms are commonly shared, but gender-specific.
*Backpacker style trips are being discontinued October 2023.
Stay in a mix of classic hotels and comfortable hostels.
The majority of our trips fall into this category. Travelers will stay at both hotels and hostels (think: cool shared spaces, strong communal vibes, and often situated in the heart of the destination)—all with the basic amenities you’re used to at home. You’ll room with 4+ new travel BFFs from your group.
*Standard style trips are being discontinued October 2023.
