What does Contiki mean?

We take our name from the word โ€˜Continentโ€™, which reinforces the companyโ€™s mission to connect travellers from all continents, and the word โ€˜Tikiโ€™, which comes from the native New Zealand Maori good luck charm, which is where the company was initially founded back in 1962.
