Whether it's your first time travelling solo, or you're a seasoned single traveller, at Explore you're sure to feel inspired by our choice of small group adventure holidays that make ideal holidays for singles over 40. Whether you're feeling itchy feet for a fast-paced Walking and Trekking Holiday, or an exciting and adventure-packed Cultural Discovery holiday, Explore take care of all the details for you so you can focus on enjoying your dream trip, in the company of new like-minded friends.

Adventure Holidays for Single People Over 40

Our Cultural Discovery holidays are our most popular trips of all, and from scenic train rides through Morocco on the Marrakech Express, to enjoying an Indochina Encounter as you journey through Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, or cruising along lakes and between fishing villages among other must-see Cambodia Highlights, there's the perfect culture-packed trip for every single traveller over 40.

Led by expert guides, every one of our cultural small group trips is designed to offer an authentic experience, beyond the tourist attractions and into the heart of the local culture. On some trips you'll even have the opportunity to stay and eat with locals, and travel on local transport - you'll truly have all the excitement of a solo trip, with a carefully planned itinerary so there's nothing for you to worry about but how to capture the moments!

Speaking of the locals, many of our adventure holidays for over 40s offer you the chance to get up close to some of the world's most wonderful wildlife. The trip of a lifetime for nature lovers, our Wildlife Trips could show you the Highlights of Costa Rica, including its lazy sloths, noisy monkeys and vibrantly coloured frogs and birds, or perhaps you'd like to spot toucans, parrots and crocodiles as you Discover Belize?

If a safari has always been on your Bucket List, our 15-day Botswana Wildlife Safari takes you into the carefully protected habitats of Africa's most magnificent wildlife so you can see white rhino, elephants, buffalo, cheetahs, and lions in their natural and happy states. Holidays for single travellers don't come more unforgettable than this.

Whether you're an avid walker, a keen cyclist or always enjoy trying something new, at Explore we offer action-packed small group activity holidays that make solo travel over 40 even more fun.

On our best-selling Toubkal Climb Moroccan trekking adventure, you'll be guided through lush forests, remote villages and make a stop in historic Marrakech, before embarking upon an ascent of Jebel Toubkal - North Africa's highest peak, from where you can take in the panoramic and breathtaking views of the High Atlas. Or if you like to stretch your legs but don't want to tackle a tricky incline, go On Foot in Northern Cyprus to follow trails through the Besparmak Mountains, and admire its beautiful flora and fauna, Crusader castles and majestic coastline.

Prefer to feel the wind in your hair? We offer many two wheeled-trips too, where we'll even provide your bike! Whatever level of cycling you feel ready to take on, whether that's a moderately challenging journey along Southeastern European roads as you Cycle Albania, a gentle, picturesque cruise alongside the Canal Du Midi, or even one of our Self-Guided Cycling Holidays for single people over 40 that allow you to cycle along on your own terms, we have an active holiday at a pace that's just right for you.

Your safety and wellbeing is our priority at Explore. On our group adventure holidays we'll take care of your itinerary, including your travel, accommodation, many meals and even your flights if you like, but you'll have some free time too that you're able to spend how you wish. However, we recommend that particularly in an unfamiliar culture, you don't travel too far by yourself, and inform your group leader of where you're going during your free time. Our trip groups are often made up of several single travellers, and are popular holidays for single women over 40 particularly - so why not invite someone along with you?

You'll really get the most out of your single holidays over 40 if you pack a local phrasebook, or even learn a little of the local language beforehand. Don't worry if you struggle - in most cultures, even the smallest efforts to speak the language are appreciated.

Finally, it is vital that you take the time to find out whether you need any vaccinations in plenty of time before you go on your solo trip. Your GP can help you to arrange any that you need - take a look at our Travel Health page for a few more tips on vaccinations staying healthy on your solo adventure trip, and if you have any questions at all, whether about your holiday health or our trips, our knowledgeable Customer Support team are always on hand to help.
