Whether you’re an experienced solo traveller, or exploring the idea of a break away by yourself for the first time, the flexibility and empowerment of a solo adventure never fades. The dampener however can often appear in the form of steep single accommodation supplements, a lack of itinerary choices and also personal concerns for safety - particularly for women solo travellers.
Slow Adventure welcomes solo travellers and our adventures fit perfectly to suit the single individual, or single travellers who wish to travel in a group. There’s never any need to pre-organise a group to travel and whilst some elements of our itineraries (such as outdoor activities) may bring a group together, you are guaranteed your own space.
We’ve had heartwarming feedback from solo travellers who have booked a slow adventure and have not only thoroughly enjoyed a trip at their own pace, but also valued the responsible nature of our adventures and the contribution that they made to an Impact Project with their booking.
