Adventure holidays for single travellers over 50

The world's a big place - where are you yet to explore? Our Cultural Discovery group adventure trips allow you to discover a new destination beyond just its tourist attractions - you'll learn about its history and culture through visits to historic sites and experiences, as well as meeting, and often even staying with, local people or tribes. Wherever you choose to go, you'll be made to feel welcome and truly at home with friendly like-minded people, and all at a pace that suits you.

Cuba is one of our most popular destinations, particularly for solo travellers over 50, and it's so easy to see why. Whether you take our faster-paced Cuba Libre! group adventure holiday, or take a slower pace while you see The Best of Western Cuba, this colourful and captivating country will amaze you at every corner, with vintage cars and rum bars lining the streets of vibrant Havana, pastel-coloured historic buildings and rich culture in Santiago De Cuba, and the story of Che Guevara to be discovered in Santa Clara.

Should you wish to adventure a little closer to home, our moderately and relaxed pace group adventure trips to Europe and Turkey could be just the ticket. It may be the world's smallest continent, but Europe offers some of the richest experiences to be found anywhere on the globe - from admiring the Highlights of Andalucia, to exploring Moscow and St. Petersburg, or immersing yourself in the historical Treasures of Turkey.

If you're looking to be truly dazzled on your solo adventure on one of our group trips, let the magic of Iceland and its natural wonders amaze you on our Iceland Yurt Adventure trip where you may also be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights on our winter itinerary - surely an experience that everyone has on their Bucket List.

Active adventures for solo travellers in their 50s

Our small group adventure trips let you see some of the world's most wonderful destinations, in a way that suits you - whether that's on two wheels or four, or even on foot. Our Walking holidays and Cycling holidays are popular with single travellers over 50, and with a range of paces to choose from, there's the perfect trip for every level of ability.

Cruise through the sun-drenched landscapes of Morocco on our Cycle Morocco trip, or see the breathtaking sights as you Cycle the Dalmatian Coast, passing through villages, vineyards and valleys along the route.

Prefer a more leisurely stroll? Keen walkers can enjoy easy guided walking and trekking holidays with a difference. Whether that's twelve indulgent days of Walks and Wine Tasting in Spain and Portugal, or hiking the fascinating Cambodian Trails of Angkor and Beyond, 'stretching your legs' has never been so exciting.
