What if you feel like an adventure in an exotic foreign land but can’t find anyone to go with you? Travelling alone can be challenging and complicated. You may feel less confident to try something different or out of your comfort zone. This is where you will find that we have the perfect solution. Intrepid Travel is the world’s largest small-group adventure travel company and in fact over 50% of their customers are solo travellers.
Why would you want to join a group of strangers on holiday? As Intrepid groups are small (usually maximum 12 guests) it is easy to quickly bond with your fellow travellers. The fact that you are joining a group of like-minded people who have chosen the same travel destination is already a good starting point and makes conversation easier. Camaraderie grows quickly and you may end your holiday with a number of new found friends.
When on an Intrepid trip you will have a local leader who knows all the ins and outs of the places you are visiting. They know the best local bars and restaurants and places of interest away from the main tourist areas. Their knowledge goes beyond what you find in the guide books you’ve just bought!
One of the most important aspects of joining a group as a solo traveller is that feeling of security and having someone to watch your back. At the same time the small group size attracts less attention than a large coachload of tourists!
Popular trips for solo travellers include India, Mexico, Cape Town to Victoria Falls, Morocco, Vietnam Express Southbound, Galapagos and the Inca Trail. In fact due to popular demand some itineraries have been designed just for solo travellers: Classic Peru, Best of Morocco, Circle Sri Lanka, Iceland Discovery and Beautiful Bali just to name a few.
