QUEENSTOWN, New Zealand, – January 16, 2024
Solo travelers are the focus of a new Empowered educational series Solo Travel – Safety & Guided Experiences hosted by Meg Ryan launching January 2024, featuring Active Adventures — fully-guided small group adventure travel specialists.
"About 30-40% of our guests are solo travelers," says Wendy van Lieshout, CEO of Active Adventures. "Joining one of our guided small group vacations gives people the courage to explore new places and try new things in a supportive environment."
"Our guests like the sense of freedom from getting out of their comfort zone," says van Lieshout. "They may have partners who don't like to travel as much but enjoy sharing experiences with others. Our guests make lifelong friendships on our trips because they can be free to be themselves."
Starting almost 30 years ago in New Zealand, Active Adventures has outdoor adventure vacations in the most breathtaking regions of the world including New Zealand, Patagonia, Peru and Galapagos, Europe, the Himalayas, Africa, and through sister brand Austin Adventures, North America and specialty family adventures.
Wendy van Lieshout explains, "Our itineraries have been perfected from decades of experience and cater for solo travelers, couples, and friend groups as well as trips specifically designed for families too. We’re small enough to understand our guests' individual needs before they travel. Our personal outreach program includes at least three calls with each guest ahead of their trip. Yet we’re big enough to get the scale to offer great value for money."
Features particularly in tune with solo travelers’ needs include:
