If you’re looking to travel solo, but not alone, you’ve come to the right place. We offer incredible holidays that are ideal for solo travellers where you can explore with a group of like-minded people who share your passion for travel.
Travelling solo may seem daunting, but it can kickstart a renewed sense of adventure. And on our guided group trips, you have the reassurance of travelling with an expert local leader while also getting the chance to connect with other like-minded people your group.
Trekking to the top of the worlds most impressive peaks, cycling along unexplored coastal paths, delving into new cultures, or spotting some of the world’s most elusive wildlife is more exciting when you share the experience with other travellers – and it’s moments like these which often spark friendships that can last a lifetime. This is just one of the reasons why over 50% of our customers choose to travel solo with us.
Another plus is that you’ll benefit from our expert guide’s unrivalled local knowledge, so you can discover places you wouldn’t find in a guidebook. Travelling with an organised group gives you added peace of mind, knowing everything is planned for you. You can also choose to book a room to yourself for the entirety of your trip, at a reasonable cost.
So why not travel solo with us and meet like-minded travellers from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand on your next adventure? Whether you’re searching for solo cycling holidays, trekking tours or adventure holidays for singles, our collection of trips offers perfect holidays for solo travellers.
Since 1974, we’ve hand-picked our guides for their outstanding local knowledge and expertise – it’s what sets our adventures apart. Our experts know their destination inside-out and will take you to the best local markets, family-run restaurants, hidden trails, and panoramic viewpoints only a local would know how to find. And it’s key knowledge like this that enhances your overall solo travel experience and immerses you deeper into the local culture – something you might miss out on if you travel alone.
For Meeting Like-Minded Travelers
Our guided groups are typically made up of a mix of solo travellers, couples, and friends who all share a deep passion for travel and discovering different cultures. Often, we find our travellers make life-long friends on our adventures, with many returning to us to arrange future trips together – sometimes even with the same local guide. They say “happiness is the only thing that’s doubled when it’s shared” – and we agree, as some of the best travel moments come from sharing the experience with others while travelling solo on our tours.
When you travel solo with Exodus, your safety is our priority. And thanks to the extensive local knowledge our expert guides have, they know: exactly which areas to go to (as well as where to avoid!); where’s best to exchange your money; and they also ensure that your transportation for the whole trip has passed our safety checks. Every itinerary is meticulously designed with your safety in mind, allowing you to relax and enjoy your solo holiday.
For Convenience and Ease
The benefit of travelling solo in our guided groups is that your walking routes, cycling paths, and cultural pit-stops have already been meticulously planned to showcase your destination’s highlights and local gems. So, it takes all the planning and organising out of your holiday. All we’d recommend you do before your solo holiday is review our detailed travel notes before you go, that give you handy tips on what to pack and how to prepare for your upcoming trip!

What our travellers say
Here’s what some of our past solo travellers had to say:
“Exceptional! After decades of solo travel, doing it all myself, this was a game changer being in a small group…I like my space a lot yet everyone was so authentic, like-minded.”
– Arlette Lee, Exodus Traveller
“The trips are so well organised. I like to travel alone which is well catered for on their holidays, as there are often several other singles on their trips.”
– Gary Brooks, Exodus Traveller
Solo travel tour FAQs
How can I plan to travel solo?
Travelling solo can be daunting, so we’ve put together group itineraries across a wide selection of destinationsthat are ideal for single travellers. If you want to experience new cultures, a solo trekking holiday, exciting activities, or some of the world’s most stunning scenery, we can take the hard work out of your planning. And, because half of our travellers also choose to holiday solo, you won’t be the only one in the group!
Planning for one of our solo holidays is easier than you might think. Of course, as with any other trip, you’ll want to consider travel insurance, foreign currency, and any required visas or vaccinations for the destination you’ll be travelling to.
As our trips include expert guides, you’ll have someone on hand to recommend and advise you along the way, should you need any help. And, because your itinerary is taken care of, all you’ll need to worry about while you’re there is having fun!
How easy is it to travel solo for the first time?
Travelling alone can be exciting, yet nerve-wracking, especially when it’s your first time. But choosing to travel solo with Exodus means you don’t need to worry about planning your route or deciding on safe destinations for single travellers.
Our group tours make it easy for you to meet other solo travellers and take the stress out of organising your own itineraries.
Our solo travel tours offer a way of experiencing your ideal single traveller holiday as part of a larger group.
Choose your ideal tour, your departure dates, and whether you want flights included. Your selected trip notes will include details of the itinerary, accommodation, weather, food, and transport. Plus, other practical information to prepare you for the trip.
Depending on your chosen solo tour, you’ll spend one to three weeks exploring your selected destination with a range of organised activities. Some of your trip will be allocated as free time to enable you to discover the area at your own leisure.
Some tours and activities are suited to most travellers while others require a certain level of fitness. To find out whether a tour is right for you, take a look at the ‘essential info’ tab on your chosen holiday.
Will I have my own room when I travel solo?
On our adventures, we offer twin-shared rooms with you and another solo traveller of the same gender in your group.
If you’d like the flexibility to book your own private room for the duration of your trip, for a small added charge, you can choose to add a single supplement to your booking over the phone or online on many of our trips.
What makes Exodus Adventure Travels small group tours a good choice for solo travellers?
Our small guided-group tours are led by experienced local experts and normally have around 8-16 people in one group. We pride ourselves on having an interest-packed itinerary that’s been fine-tuned to showcase the highlights and hidden gems your destination has to offer.
We also like to encourage an inclusive atmosphere with our guided-group adventures, so most days are spent taking part in daily activities with your group. When it comes to mealtimes, check your trip notes to see what breakfasts, lunches, and dinners are included in our itineraries.
On some evenings, your guide will accompany you to dinner and help you choose which regional specialities to try. However, we also like to include some downtime and free days on our trips. This gives you the freedom to explore as you like and heed the guidance of our local expert, who will give great suggestions of where to eat and the best museums and local art galleries to visit. They can also help you organise optional activities like kayaking, ziplining, and more.
What will my group be like?
We’re lucky to have travellers joining us from all over the world, with many coming from the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, in a wide range of ages. And what’s more, over 50% of our customers choose to travel solo with us so we rarely have a group that only has one solo traveller – most comprise a good mix of solos, couples, and friends travelling together.
Prior to your trip, you’ll be invited to join our “Departure Lounge” by email, where you can post a message, start a discussion with other travellers, ask questions, and share travel tips. This is a great way to get to know your group before you head off on your adventure.
How big are group sizes?
Our tour groups normally have 8-16 people in them. We find that this is an ideal number as it’s not too large and allows everyone to get to know each other.
As over half of our travellers are also on solo holidays with us, it’s a good group size to find others with similar interests to share experiences with.
Where will the group meet?
Your leader will usually meet you at the destination airport and the entire group will get together for the first time at the specified start hotel. This will be detailed in your itinerary and trip notes.
Is it cheaper to travel in a group?
Travelling on a guided-group tour can be more cost-effective than travelling solo on your own, as you could split the cost of some optional activities with the group.
The majority of transfers, included meals, and organised activities are also covered in your booking costs too, which can all add up if you’re travelling alone, especially if you’re looking to travel in remote locations.
Will the group activities be tailored to me?
Each solo holiday is given an activity rating which will help you decide if the tour is right for you.
Our ratings relate to fitness levels, expected weather conditions, and the schedule pace, amongst other factors. They’re also dependent on the type of trip you’re considering such as solo cycling holidays or solo ski holidays.
It’s important to find out the activity level of the tour before booking to make sure it’s one you’re comfortable with.

Please note you will be told, by Exodus, that your luggage will be put through at San Paulo and this is absolutely not the case. You will need to recheck your luggage. This caused people to miss their connections/sprint to catch their connection. I asked for a longer connection time and Exodus said no causing unnecessary stress. The tour leader, Tony, was absolutely lush and very knowledgeable and if there was an animal to spot he spotted it. Arasas Lodge is nice, but in reality the itinerary was really lacking here with several hours to kill between activities (10-4pm). It felt like a last minute add on as they couldn’t just make the trip 4 days. I would say the cost of the trip really is not good value for money and sadly I could not recommend this trip though we did see the jaguars.
Awesome trip with a home base in an amazing hotel with great views, pool and breakfast buffet. The walks were different terrain every day, beautiful scenery. Gizer was an excellent, knowledgeable, funny guide. He arranged dinners, trips, could not ask for a better leader of the group. The only complaint: very hot weather that made the hiking less enjoyable than ideal. Definitely recommended!
