New to Explore? We’ve answered some of the most-asked questions about joining our tours as a solo traveller.


Adventure holidays ideal for single travellers over 50

The world's a big place - where are you yet to explore? Our Cultural Discovery group adventure trips allow you to discover a new destination beyond just its tourist attractions - you'll learn about its history and culture through visits to historic sites and experiences, as well as meeting, and often even staying with, local people or tribes. Wherever you choose to go, you'll be made to feel welcome and truly at home with friendly like-minded people, and all at a pace that suits you.

Cuba is one of our most popular destinations, particularly for solo travellers over 50, and it's so easy to see why. Whether you take our faster-paced Cuba Libre! group adventure holiday, or take a slower pace while you see The Best of Western Cuba, this colourful and captivating country will amaze you at every corner, with vintage cars and rum bars lining the streets of vibrant Havana, pastel-coloured historic buildings and rich culture in Santiago De Cuba, and the story of Che Guevara to be discovered in Santa Clara.

Should you wish to adventure a little closer to home, our moderately and relaxed pace group adventure trips to Europe and Turkey could be just the ticket. It may be the world's smallest continent, but Europe offers some of the richest experiences to be found anywhere on the globe - from hiking Turkey's ancient Lycian Way, to admiring the Highlights of Albania.

If you're looking to be truly dazzled on your solo adventure on one of our group trips, let the magic of Iceland and its natural wonders amaze you on our Land of the Midnight Sun trip, or seize the chance to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights on our winter itinerary - surely an experience that everyone has on their Bucket List.

Active holidays ideal for solo travellers in their 50s

Our small group adventure trips let you see some of the world's most wonderful destinations, in a way that suits you - whether that's on two wheels or four, or even on foot. Our Walking holidays suitable for over 50s and Cycling holidays suitable for over 50s are popular with single travellers, and with a range of paces to choose from, there's the perfect trip for every level of ability.

Cruise through the sun-drenched landscapes of Morocco on our Cycle Morocco trip, or see the breathtaking sights as you Cycle the Dalmatian Coast, passing through villages, vineyards and valleys along the route.

Prefer a more leisurely stroll? Keen walkers can enjoy easy guided walking and trekking holidays with a difference. Whether that's twelve indulgent days of Walks and Wine Tasting in Spain and Portugal, or eight days in Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania on a Baltic States walking tour, 'stretching your legs' has never been so exciting.
