Solo walking holidays

Walking and trekking can be a great way to explore new destinations. Join like-minded travellers on our small group solo tours as a solo traveller. Enjoy a balance of socialising and time to yourself on a walking holiday.


Small group walking holidays for singles

From a leisurely walk along breath-taking coastline to challenging, once-in-a-lifetime treks up some of the world’s iconic mountains – joining a small group walking or trekking holiday as a solo traveller can be a great way to explore new destinations.
You’ll be in great company too. Our trips attract people from all over the world who love to explore, discover and share their love for travel. Our average small group size is just 11 people and includes around half singles and the rest coupes of friends travelling together. You’ll get the benefits of travelling in a group, including opportunities to socialise and the safety of group travel, whilst enjoying the simplicity and ‘me time’ of solo travel.

Explore your chosen destination at your own pace. Our walking and trekking holidays are graded from Easy to Challenging. Plus, our expert tour leaders will help you get to the heart of your destination and take away all the hassle of route planning.

Walking, hiking & trekking for singles

From leisurely paced walks along breathtaking coastlines, to more challenging treks up some of the world's most awesome mountains, our small group Walking and Trekking Trips offer everything you need for a more active adventure holiday. As they're guided by expert leaders, who ensure that all of the details are taken care of, they make perfect walking holidays for solo travellers - all you need to worry abut is packing your most comfortable boots.

In fact, our walking and trekking holidays are some of our most popular group adventure holidays of all, as they're a fantastic way to explore a new destination and take in its most unforgettable sights, sounds and scents. Our best-selling Amalfi Coast Walking holiday will take you along this spectacular Italian coastline and culminate with the famous 'Walk of the Gods', but with an easy pace, you'll have plenty of time and opportunity to enjoy delicious Italian cuisine and wine along the way - no wonder it's a favourite walking trip for solo travellers.

Or for solo travellers who really want to tick some destinations off their bucket list, there's our highly popular Toubkal Climb, on which you and your fellow travellers will be led through some of Morocco's most exciting scenery, and towards Jebel Toubkal - North Africa's highest peak at 4167m, and from where the whole of the Atlas mountain range will unfold before you.

Travel solo, but never alone

What makes our trekking and walking holidays popular with single travellers is that you get all of the thrill and authenticity of solo travel, but without being alone. On any of our small group adventure holidays you could be joined by every type of traveller, including families, couples, and indeed fellow solo adventurers, so you're sure to meet some interesting people to share your experience with.

Included in the cost of your walking or trekking holiday with Explore is your accommodation, travel and activities, as well as some or all of your meals (you'll find full details on the individual trip page) plus your flights, if you wish. With the details taken care of and your itinerary carefully planned, all you need to do is arrive, and enjoy every minute of your trip. You'll also have plenty of free time scheduled in too - and whether you'd like to use that to explore your destination further, or just indulge in some relaxing downtime, how you spend that is up to you.

Of course, if you have any questions about any of our recommended holidays for solo travellers, just get in touch - our experts are always very happy to help you plan your perfect solo adventure holiday.
