Adventures for Solo Travelers

utah vacations 3

Solo, but never alone. Push your boundaries, explore somewhere new, and find yourself in good company on our adventures for solo travelers.

We welcome solo travelers on all our adventure vacations. With us, you’ll find fast friends; safety in numbers; unmatched exploration by bike, foot, kayak, and more; empathetic and knowledgeable local guides; and best-in-class lodging and dining — all while walking the exhilarating path of self-discovery.

We don't currently offer specific singles-only tours, but we highly encourage solo travelers to join our adult trips where you’ll find other solo travelers, couples, and families with older kids who all share a love of travel and adventure.

We offer a free room-sharing option to avoid the single supplement, but you can choose to pay a small amount extra for your own room each night if you wish. If your departure date is at least 90 days away at the time of booking, a forced single supplement will never be charged.

What Solo Active Adventurers Have to Say...

Don't take our word for it! Here's what some of our past guests have had to say about traveling solo in a small group...

"It can be a bit overwhelming to travel halfway around the world by one's self.
The Active Guides made me instantly comfortable and within a day our group gelled as we began to hike, bike and kayak through the most beautiful landscape I've ever seen. We learned a lot, we laughed a lot and became a family of happy travelers. If you're going to see the Southern Cross for the first time... New Zealand is a perfect place to do it. I made lifetime friends and memories that will carry me through until the next adventure. Active makes every effort to make your trip extraordinary."  Deb; USA

"By far the best two weeks I could have spent for my first trip to New Zealand! Our tour guides, Kaleb and Pepper, were fun, outgoing, knowledgeable, and were able to accommodate all travelers in our group. I had such a blast meeting other solo travelers like myself, as well as hiking, biking, kayaking, and exploring all of the beauty that is the South Island. Already planning my next Active Adventures trip."  Kevin; Canada

"I was looked after from the moment I was picked up at the airport to the moment I was dropped off at the end. Nothing was too much trouble for our guides and we all got on so well (guests and guides)."  Louise; USA

Solo Travel FAQs

Do You Offer Singles-Only Tours?

We do not offer trips exclusively for singles, but you might be surprised to learn thousands of singles join our trips as solo travelers. We encourage solo travelers to join our adult trips where you’ll be joined by other solo travelers, couples, and families with older kids who all share your love of travel and adventure. We’ll simply pair you with another solo guest of the same gender for rooming. Alternatively, you’re welcome to pay the single supplement to have rooms to yourself.

Who else will be on the trip?

Our trips attract a wide range of people from different backgrounds, countries and ages, which makes our small group adventures all the more enjoyable. Our guests tend to enjoy active lifestyles, great food, good company and new experiences. If you’re feeling nervous about traveling with strangers, rest assured you’ll be in good company.

How do Rooming Arrangements Work?

Unless otherwise stated, trip prices are based on shared arrangements (typically two guests per room). For solo travelers, we’ll pair you with another person of the same gender to share rooms and if there’s no one suitable to share with, there’s no forced single supplement. However, if you specifically request your own rooms, you can opt to pay the single supplement. Solo travelers who book within 90 days of departure, where there are no other solo travelers willing to share, will be required to pay the single supplement. Rooming preferences are subject to availability and must be communicated in writing at time of booking.
