Pack Your Bags

Whether you're a seasoned traveler looking to check another destination off your list or someone trying to make that once-in-a-lifetime vacation happen, Cosmos can help you get there. For more than 50 years, we've offered travel packages to the world's most captivating places. Cosmos knows what's important once you reach your destination - the sights, the scenes, the locals, and the legends. So, we get you exactly where you want to be.

Now you can take free time to a whole new level with a Cosmos Lite tour. Enjoy the best of both worlds in tour packages—with the benefits of our vacation planning expertise without the scheduled itinerary. Your days are a blank canvas that gives you the choice of a variety of excursions, activities, and locales that interest you. And we’ll be there to make it happen your way.

New Endeavours

A whole new category of touring, Cosmos Lite presents the world’s first à la carte tour style. Combining the essential features of our award-winning Cosmos tours with a personalized approach to daily itineraries, Cosmos Lite offers hassle-free travel with the freedom to tailor your itinerary to your own interests, pace and budget.


 Cosmos Lite vacation packages include city-to-city transportation, comfortable hotels, and daily breakfast to power your pursuits. What your days include, however, is completely up to you. With a range of MyCosmos excursions, you have the option to purchase only the tours and activities that strike your fancy. Need guidance on what to do? An expert Tour Director will accompany you as you travel between cities to offer suggestions for sightseeing, dining and entertainment. Or wander and wonder at your own pace, with the CosmosGo app, filled with a host of entertainment, sightseeing, dining and shopping suggestions at your fingertips.


Virtually all Cosmos Lite excursions start later than typical tours. So, go ahead, rise early or sleep in. Set out solo or join a group outing. With your logistics taken care of and no set itinerary, you can joyfully experience the captivating landscapes and cityscapes of Europe – on your terms and timeline. No other vacation package offers a bigger bundle of freedom, flexibility, affordability and fun!
