Contiki launches first plant-based trip

Whether you’re vegan curious, committed to an animal-friendly alternative lifestyle or just watching your waistline, you can be sure that veganism is one trend that’s not going away. 

Group travel expert for 18 to 35 year olds, Contiki, has launched a new vegan-friendly trip that is sure to whet the appetite of the growing number of vegan (or vegan-curious) travellers.

 “According to studies by food blog, Chef’s Pencil, the popularity of veganism has exploded locally with South Africa ranking among the world’s 25 nations where veganism is on the rise” says Kele Scheppers, Marketing Manager for The Travel Corporation.

“Food and travel go hand in hand and it can be a challenge for those practising veganism to have the chance to experience local delicacies in certain parts of the world,” she adds. 

“As a result we’ve seen a big increase in queries from travellers about where to find the best vegan eateries. A  dedicated vegan itinerary has long been a dream trip for us and we look forward to welcoming travellers on to this culinary adventure.”

Guided by experts on all things plant-based, the once-off, eight-day trip from 16 to 23 August 2020, Vegan Food Europe Explorer will be hosted by @thelittlelondonvegan and @laurafruitfairy. They’ll take travellers on a vegan food odyssey around some of Europe’s coolest cities. 

Rising to fame as world-renowned vegan hotspots, the trip covers Berlin, Prague, Vienna and Budapest, with extra stops along the way.  

What to expect

Immersive cultural experiences such as a locally-guided bike tour of opulent Prague and a classical music concert in melodic Vienna (home to greats like Mozart and Strauss), are also included — along with wellness excursions, from a morning yoga class in Prague, to a soak in the famous Széchenyi traditional thermal baths in Budapest.

Accommodation has been specially selected to showcase the coolest stays around, including the Moxy in Berlin and A&O in Budapest, with bespoke vegan breakfasts served exclusively for Contiki guests. 

“Veganuary is creating a new wave of consumers with strong ethics and a big appetite! This is a real opportunity for businesses to improve and expand their vegan offerings for the growing climate-conscious audience,” says Meral Ince, Veganuary's corporate outreach officer. 

“We’re delighted that Contiki has risen to this challenge offering their first plant-based trip for 18 to 35-year olds (a group that made up 50% of participants for Veganuary 2019). Contiki are making vegan travelling easier than ever!”
