Travelling solo doesn't mean having to travel alone. At Explore, we specialise in small group holidays that are perfect for solo travellers, on which you can discover a destination that you've always dreamed of at a pace that truly suits you.
On our small group adventure holidays you will enjoy all of the excitement of travelling solo, but with the expert guidance of our group leaders and the company of adventurous, like-minded travellers. On our group trips you could be joined by families, friends and couples as well as fellow single travellers, but what you can be sure of is that you'll soon become great friends.
Your perfect adventure, your way
Where have you always wanted to visit? A group adventure holiday with Explore could take you to some of the world's most exciting destinations on a Cultural Discovery tour that immerses you in local life, or even a Trekking, Walking or Cycling holiday on which you can see the sights in your very own way. We take care of planning your route, travel, accommodation, activities and even some of your meals, so you can truly relax and enjoy the trip that you've always wanted to take.
Our Cultural Discovery trips are extremely popular holidays for solo travellers as we offer an outstanding choice of destinations and itineraries, which tick off all the must-see sights yet take you beyond the typical tourist attractions to allow you to truly experience the authentic local culture.
You could join us on an unforgettable journey across one of South America's most fascinating countries on our best-selling Cuba Libre! trip, on which you'll see all of the highlights from the incredible city of Havana to the unspoiled mountain forests of Topes de Collantes, plus enjoy opportunities to stay and mingle with the locals - and of course, share plenty of glasses of rum.
Or how about a trip to discover and explore Moscow and St Petersburg, two of Russia's most prominent cities that each have their own unique stories to tell; an Indochina Encounter to venture across Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam by local transport, discovering ancient temples, floating villages, and vibrant capital cities along the way; or a Former Yugoslavia Rail Adventure on which, by train, you and your group will visit the seven beautiful countries that make up this thriving and fascinating region that is rich in unforgettable experiences.
Active trips at a pace to suit you
For solo travellers who like to get more active on their holidays, our carefully planned small group walking, trekking or cycling holidays could be just the ticket.
Whether you'd like to take to enjoy leisurely Walks and Wine Tasting in Spain and Portugal, a challenging trek to The Lost World of Venezuela or zip around the Backroads of Kerala on two wheels, our choice of ideal Adventure Holidays for Singles around the world offers a variety of durations, trip paces and trek grades so there's something to suit every age, level of experience and ability.
Our guides will lead you along your route whilst sharing their expert knowledge of each location, and you'll have some free time to enjoy as you wish too - even if that's just putting your feet up with a coffee before moving on to your next stop. Of course, our walking, trekking and cycling holidays require plenty of fuel too, so there will be lots of opportunities to try the local food and drink!
We believe that all of our small group adventure holidays make great trips for solo travellers, but if you really want to go at your own pace, take a look at our Self-Guided Walking and Cycling Holidays.
