Solo Travel in Europe

Solo travel holidays in Europe with Explore

Europe might be the worlds’ second smallest continent, but it certainly packs a punch when it comes to sights and activities. The mixture of cuisine, culture and history is enough to satisfy the wanderlust of any solo traveller. Made up of over 50 countries, Europe has an abundance of both fast-paced cosmopolitan cities and ancient capitals that still continue to impress and amaze.

Ideal for those travelling solo thanks to its easy and efficient cross-border travel system, Europe presents the perfect opportunity to explore several countries in one trip, as part of our organised group trips.

From the lush mountainous north where you’ll find the Nordic settlements of Scandinavia and Alpine villages of France, to the historic southern Mediterranean capitals of Rome and Athens, Europe’s rich and chequered history provides a vivid and dramatic backdrop for your trip.

Nature lovers will revel in the cool, glacial landscapes of Iceland and the snowy mountains of Andorra, whilst those who love adventure can marvel at crumbling ruins in Turkey, trek to near-forgotten temples in the Greek Islands, and explore the remnants of the former Roman Empire in Italy.

There’s plenty to do all year round in Europe. Whether you decide to embark on one of our sunshine-soaked coastal bike rides in Portugal and Spain, or opt for a seasonal trip to Germany and Eastern Europe for festive markets, Gothic castles and post-war relics, you’ll be inspired wherever you go on our European trips.

Solo Travelling in Europe

Europe is one of our most popular destinations with solo travelers thanks to its ease for travel and the warm, welcoming familiarity of our European neighbours.

Whilst every country has its own customs, languages and traditions, English is widely spoken and the Euro is accepted across the continent. Whilst crime is fairly low, single travelers should still take care of their belonging as they would in any other location and be wary at tourist spots for local pick-pockets.
