The Beauty of Travelling Solo (But Not Really)

14 Jun 2024

One of the questions we get asked most frequently is: "I am traveling solo. Can I still book one of your trips?"

Our answer is yes – and we believe that’s one of the best ways to travel. In this article, we'll explain why and how, when you travel with us, you're never really on your own.

There are plenty of reasons why you might decide to travel solo, especially on a walking tour. Sometimes it’s not a choice – perhaps you don't have friends who share your passion for active travel, or they might not be fit enough for the same journey, or maybe their holidays don’t align with yours. Other times, it’s a necessity or a desire to immerse yourself in a personal adventure and spend some time alone.

Whatever your reason for traveling solo, we are happy to assist you every step of the way and have a specific section of our website dedicated to the best trips for solo travellers.

The Best Way to Discover Yourself (and Others)

A walking trip is a perfect way to create an intimate space where your time is entirely yours. Walking several kilometers each day, immersed in nature, gives you ample time to think, dedicate yourself to what you love, and enjoy the silence interrupted only by your footsteps. It's a chance to embrace thoughts we usually suppress while focusing on our daily tasks.

It’s also an opportunity to discover new aspects of yourself, overcome small personal challenges, and be surprised by skills and resources you didn't know you had.

Traveling solo also allows you to meet people along the way and form connections in a way that is very different from traveling with friends or family. Without familiar companions, we often become more curious about others and more open to new friendships. You might share part of the journey, a meal, or a conversation, continuing on your way when your paths diverge, enriched by the encounter and the beautiful moments shared.

Self-Guided Tours While Solo? Absolutely!

Our self-guided tours can easily be booked for just one person, and the process is the same as for small groups or couples. You can create your quotation on the website, specifying that you'll be traveling solo in a single room. The system will provide the price for your trip (to be confirmed based on hotel availability – to know more about our booking process, click here).

While you may be traveling solo, you will never be alone. You’ll have our support every step of the way, a personalized app to use without Wi-Fi for safe navigation, and a 24/7 contact number for any problems or questions. The hotels we select will welcome you warmly and help you enjoy your holiday to the fullest.

If you are still undecided about your trip and would prefer an itinerary where it will be easier to meet other people, let us know and we’ll recommend our most popular trips. The last section of the Via Francigena or the Camino de Santiago, for example, are usually very popular, especially at certain times of the year, and you will surely meet other walkers along the way.

Generally speaking, most of our trips pass through inhabited areas with villages and shops along the route. If you're unsure about the specific trip you're interested in, just ask and we’ll reassure you or help you choose another trip that better fits your needs and preferences.
