One of the best things about our holidays is the opportunity to enjoy others’ company and make new friends.
If you’ve been wanting to take a trip, but have been put off by the idea of travelling alone, one of our guided walking holidays could be just the ticket.
We think that one of the things that makes our holidays extra-special is how sociable they are. They bring together people that have the same interests and outlook, so it’s not surprising that people get on well and often form lifelong friendships.
Walking is a very social activity anyway, as it’s easy to chat to the people around you. And because our tour leaders will take you off the tourist trail so that you experience the place in a much deeper and more authentic way, there’s always plenty to talk about!
All of this is probably why about half of the people in our holiday groups are typically solo travellers.
Travelling solo doesn’t have to be more expensive either. If you want to, you can choose to share a room with one of the other walkers, which keep the costs down. If you prefer to have your own space, several of our holidays have no single room supplements – a great money-saver for solo walkers.
They include all sorts of experiences. The Peak District, for example, or Sidmouth and the Devon coast, the coast of North Yorkshire near Whitby and Scarborough, or Northumberland’s costs and castles. All four require moderate walking, take five nights or less, and cost under £700. (As usual, the cost covers half board accommodation, all transport to and from the walks, and a dedicated tour leader; but not things like insurance, entrance fees or personal expenses.)
Fancy going a bit further afield? How about San Telmo in Majorca, the Lycian Way on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, or the Alps in Germany or Austria? And if you’re up for some slightly challenging walking – our grades 6 and 7 – you’ll love Arosa in the Swiss Alps. It’s a relatively remote and unexplored area, more than 5,500 feet above sea level, with cable cars waiting to whisk you to well over 6,500 feet. There are over 100 miles of trails to explore, all with stunning views.
You’ll find full details of all our holidays that are ideal for solo travellers here.
So if you’re looking for a trip to take on your own, why not see if one of our holidays takes your fancy. You might be solo, but you won’t be alone.
