Solo Travellers

People often ask us, 'are our trips suitable for solo travellers?' Well, joining our small group adventure trips is a fantastic option if you're travelling by yourself! Every trip that heads out typically has a mix of like-minded couples, friends, siblings and solo travellers on board. In fact, around half of the people that travel with us are travelling on their own. From the moment you meet as a group on day one, there's a relaxed, fun and friendly vibe. Everyone who travels with us joins our adventure vacations to see a new part of the world, challenge themselves and meet new people. By the end of the trip, you'll feel like you're travelling with old friends, laughing and joking, telling stories and swapping anecdotes from your adventure together! 

Sure, you'll still get those quiet moments to reflect by yourself as you sit and admire breath-taking views. You'll get to go at your own pace as you hike, bike and kayak each day and you'll have some spare time to explore some of the unique destinations that we visit. But what you'll also gain, when you join one of our small group adventures, is a group of life-long friends (including our legendary guides) who'll shape your memories and enhance your experience!

If you're travelling by yourself, let us know when you get in touch, and we'll be able to point you towards the best trip for you. Our guides have a special talent for making all sorts of group dynamics work wonderfully! If you happen to have a group of single friends and you'd like to travel as a 'singles group', we can organise that as well.

First Solo Trip - So Worth It!

“This was my first international trip where I traveled alone and it was so worth it! Every last detail is planned for you so it couldn't be any easier. The packing list was right on ( I used everything they suggested bringing) and rented a couple items to save enough packing space to allow me to bring only a carry on. I love active trips but get nervous trying to plan out all of the logistics.(where to stay, best things to see, transportation, etc) It was wonderful to find a way to travel without all the additional headaches. Would definitely travel with this company again!”

    Amazing Tui Trip

    We had an amazing time in New Zealand and enjoyed our Tui trip of the South Island! It was an excellent way to travel and see so many different places in one trip. Our guides, Eve and Katie, were great! They were extremely knowledgeable and very attentive to our needs, and always made sure we were well fed. We would definitely recommend the Tui trip to anyone traveling to New Zealand!

    Excellent NZ Adventures!

    My Rimu Active Adventure trip exceeded my high expectations. The hikes, backpacking, kayaking, and cycling adventures were thrilling, fun, and beautiful. Luckily for our group, we had absolutely perfect weather every day of the trip! Dani and Hilary were tremendous guides who taught me a lot about Kiwi life. Highlights for me were the 3-day backpacking tramp in Nelson Lakes National Park to Angelus Hut and kayaking in Milford Sound. I appreciated that we mostly stayed in local lodges, hotels, inns. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to truly explore the stunningly beautiful South Island of New Zealand with wonderful friendly guides.

    Tui Trip

    The Tui tour was the best trip I've ever had, all the group was great and very friendly, there was a very good feeling with all the group. It was so great to see all the nice places that you have in NZ, the tour passed so fast that I would love to do another one with you guys! And what about the super guides that we had - Jordy and Holly! They are the best ever, I would like to thank them again so much for the great time we had with them, I'm ready to do more! Holly next time we'll do the swimming race in the lake? Thanks a lot again, Ia orana from Tahiti.

    Weka - New Zealand

    Wow!! What a trip! This hiking & biking tour was breath-taking both figuratively and literally. Our guides made our adventure challenging, yet fun. They were knowledgeable, encouraging and you could tell they are truly passionate about what they do. This tour captured all the great highlights of New Zealand staying just off the beaten path so we could really experience the diverse beauty and savory tastes of the island. Our group enjoyed ourselves so much we are already discussing another Active Adventure trip in 2019. Thank you Active Adventures for a wonderful experience!
