Solo travel holidays in North America with Explore

From the rocky snow-capped mountains of the north to the wetlands and rainforests of the south, North America is a vast and exciting continent with plenty to explore at every turn. Whether you’re a keen solo traveller or adventuring with friends and family, North America has something to offer everyone, whatever your taste, interests or energy levels!

Solo Travelling in North America

North America is an exciting destination for solo travellers as there is so much to see and do. Our group tours, which range in size from larger groups to small teams, are each led by our experts to give you a fully immersive experience where you can learn all about local culture and see the brilliant sites North America has to offer.

Luckily for solo travellers, this region is host to some of the friendliest communities in the world and whether you're on the west or east coast, locals are always happy to help and offer advice.

As many of our North American tours are active in a diverse range of climates and terrains, comfortable walking shoes are highly recommended as a travel essential. If heading North during colder months, expect that you will require warm clothing to deal with extreme temperature drops whilst also staying protected against the sunshine and heat on tours heading to the desert and southern US states.

Whilst the more challenging aspects of your adventure such as travel and accommodation are taken care of by Explore, you may need to gather insight on what additional information will be required filling out Visa forms.

Travellers, as always, should take out travel health insurance before their trip and consult with their GP on medication and vaccines that may be required at least 4-6 weeks prior to departure.

Country Information

For a truly awesome view of America at its finest, our guided tour of Yosemite and the Grand Canyon will take you to some of the USA’s most iconic sights, including the monumental Grand Canyon.

Solo travellers can also get a taste of what the west coast has to offer with our Western USA Highlights tour. Combining visits to Yosemite National Park, Bryce Canyon and Monument Valley to discover the history of the Navajo Lands, solo travellers can also spend some time in the iconic city of San Francisco to catch must-see highlights such as the Golden Gate Bridge.

Our trips to the Deep South USA are also a wonderful way to become immersed in America’s southern culture which mixes history, music and very good food! Check off some of the States' most welcoming cities such as Elvis’ hometown of Memphis, New Orleans and Nashville or trek to the Great Smokey Mountains for a breath of fresh country air. You can even embark on a boat trip down the Louisiana swamps to spot alligators if you're feeling brave or participate in a Southern cooking class which is a fun way to get to know the locals and their wholesome traditional cuisine.

What better way to get outdoors and escape the city than with a group walking trip to the Canadian Rockies, or any of the US National Parks. North America is an open frontier when it comes to nature and wildlife, being home to a number of expansive forests, hiking trails, lakes and mountains which allow you to get back in touch with the wilderness and enjoy striking scenery.

Travel with Explore to Outdoor Alaska where you can marvel at the unspoilt mountains, glacial lakes and rivers of America’s most Northern state, whilst also looking out for grizzly bears and caribou. Solo travellers can even gaze across to North America’s highest peak, Mount McKinley as part of their trip, or tackle the spectacular hiking trails in Alaska’s national parks at a slightly more moderate pace.

Explore's Walking in the Rockies trip is also ideal for an exciting journey into Canada’s peaceful wilderness where you can visit stunning national parks, trek to the Stanley Glacier Trail and hike to the Kindersley-Sinclair Summit. No two locations on this continent are quite the same, which is why our tour of Yellowstone and Western Trails takes you to rivers, deserts, canyons, hot springs and waterfalls for a truly diverse look at the unique landscape of Northern America. The expansive green forests and waterfalls of Yellowstone make for sensational views as well as a chance to uncover America’s fascinating geological past at the Dinosaur National monument.

Our Canadian Winter Adventure is the perfect opportunity to visit some of Canada’s spectacular outdoor locations during the winter months, where you can enjoy activities such as snowshoeing, ice fishing and skiing whilst staying in a cosy purpose built cabin. Not only can you soak up the atmosphere of nearby cities Montreal and Ottawa, you can learn how to live in the wilderness and look out for white-tailed deer on your doorstep.

The Polar Bears in Churchill tour is also a great option for those who love to see animals in their natural environments. The in-depth knowledge of our guides will provide a truly fascinating experience for solo travellers hoping to learn as well as getting a glimpse of the unique wildlife found in the far North.

If you'd prefer to venture to warmer climes, our Discover Belize tour takes you deep into Southern USA with stops at Belize and Guatemala to explore jungle rivers, tropical rainforests and the colourful wildlife within. This adventure packed trip will allow you to tick plenty of boxes on your bucket list with visits to ancient Maya sites and temples as well as opportunities to spot monkeys, exotic birds, crocodiles and many other fantastic creatures in their natural environments.
