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!”

Remember that we offer trips in EuropeNepal, Peru, Patagonia, Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands as well, and these are all equally well set up for solo travellers! Here's a shot of an Active group hiking on the Tour du Mont Blanc circuit.

    Rimu - South Island

    Great trip, full of discoveries away from big city centers, the kind of adventure nature lovers will appreciate to the fullest. We had a great two weeks of travelling through the real NZ landscaping natural beauty and 14 days is not enough to see or do everything. We enjoyed hiking, kayaking, biking, swimming in pristine water, caving, always surrounded by super guides who made us feel in goods hands at all time.

    Awesome New Zealand experience

    Wow, what a great trip! New Zealand was at the top of my bucket list & this trip was everything I expected and more. Mt. Cook on a beautiful evening with no clouds and the lake in front was one of my favorites. Milford Sound kayaking was another. Just getting to Milford Sound is spectacular! I'd go back in a heartbeat if it weren't so far away.

    Virgin Active Adventurist-When can I do it again?!

    Fabulous trip! Not having to drive, research stops, plan activities, arrange accommodations and decide what to eat made this so relaxing, letting us enjoy every minute of every activity and even the down time! I can't wait to sign up for another trip!

    Tui

    We had a truly great time. Our guides, Koru and Liana were the best. They made the trip so much fun, especially in the light of the unpredictable New Zealand weather! And Lynette was always right there to help us along every step of the way. I brought home memories of a lifetime, and discovered that Kiwis are absolutely the friendliest people on earth. The Tui Trip was a great introductory tour, but now I want to come back again and spend more time hiking and exploring the South Island.

    Many thanks to the whole Active Adventures team. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

    Memorable South Island NZ

    This is one active trip with never a dull moment. We experienced real rain forest rain and snow capped mountains from afar and close up and personal. The contagious energy of the guides created a fun and physically challenging adventure.

Above all, we aim to be amazing hosts. We're proud of our kiwi roots, and our professional, warm and relaxed style of running trips around the world is unforgettable.

We're VERY picky about who we select to work in our team, and we have people from all over the world lining up to guide our trips. So we get to hire the absolute BEST in the business.

As soon as you get off the plane, we've got all the details of your vacation covered – top notch meals, comfortable transport & accommodation, amazing guides and INCREDIBLE service.

Whether you’re new to adventure travel, or you’ve never travelled in a group before, you’ll find yourself arriving home positively different from when you left.

With our small groups (no more than 14), you'll get to know our team, your fellow travellers, and have the flexibility and freedom to do as much (or as little!) as you like.

It's all about getting there under your own steam – on foot, in a sea kayak, or by bike. What better way is there to experience mind blowing scenery? If it's your first time, no worries – our expert guides have got you covered.
