About Contiki Cares

Contiki has an insatiable appetite for discovering new and exciting things in every nook and cranny of the world.

Our greatest passion is discovery, our greatest ambition to continue sharing these discoveries for centuries to come by respecting and protecting the places we go and the people we meet. Together with Treadright, our older sister on all things sustainability, we’re on a journey, forever listening, learning and evolving, seeking to become a more responsible and sustainable company. We’ve done some great things, but we’re ready and raring to do a whole lot more…







Alli Speed & Celine Cousteau Talk Sustainability

To raise awareness for Earth Day 2015, we brought together two incredible women, YouTuber Alli Speed and legendary documentarian Celine Cousteau, to discuss two fundamental issues that play a pivotal role in the health of our environment – what we eat, and where we travel.

Storytellers: Costa Rica

A good storyteller can help save the planet. During Earth Month 2014, Contiki sent 12 storytellers to Costa Rica to visit our Contiki Cares partner, The Sea Turtle Conservancy, to share the important work researchers are doing there to protect our planet's biodiversity.

Earth Month: Galapagos

To celebrate Earth Month 2013, Contiki sent 2 fearless, iconic Australian women to The Galapagos Islands. Billabong Junior Pro Surfer Felicity Palmateer and television personality Jesinta Campbell we’re joined on the trip by our sustainability partner Céline Cousteau. Their mission? To learn about what makes the Galapagos islands one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world, and discover what we can do to support and preserve its future.

Challenge for change: 2014

486 kilometres, 12 riders, 1 challenge – to cycle from Paris to Contiki’s Chateau de Cruix located just outside of Lyon. Covering a gruelling 486 kilometres in just 4 days, 12 dedicated, passionate and inspiring Contiki staff members from around the world managed to raise an incredible £7780.50 for the Rainbow Trust and a further US$2,940 for the Thirst Project.

The big beach clean up: surfrider

The end of 2014 saw Contiki Australia kickstart the Surfrider Foundation Beach Clean Up Tour. Staff from Contiki’s Australian office took part in the Ocean Care Day Festival, gathering at Manly beach on Sydney’s Northern Beaches to collect rubbish and raise awareness about the dangers of plastic pollution to our oceans. Sponsored by Contiki, the clean up tour will run until the end of April 2015.
