One of the fastest growing travel trends in recent years would have to be Solo Travel, with an estimated one in three Brits now travelling alone. In fact, a recent survey by Booking.com found that more than 50% of British women are more likely to travel alone today than they were just 5 years ago, and when it comes to travelling the world, they are not afraid to visit far-flung locations in exotic destinations.
Travelling solo is no longer frowned upon, but rather encouraged, and with a strong pound GBP, cheap flight connections, and accommodations to suit every budget, the world is far more accessible for those who want to go it alone. You could opt for a traditional small group escorted tour if you would like to share your travel experiences with other like-minded individuals, but if that is not really your ‘thing’, you’ll be pleased to know that there are endless holiday adventures available for single travellers, and with no one other than yourself to please, the world really is your oyster!
If you intend to travel solo this year, now is the perfect time to start planning your trip to one of our Top 3 Adventure Destinations for Single Travellers…
An action-packed holiday destination for intrepid travellers, Tanzania is bursting with activities and adrenaline rush adventures that will keep you coming back for more! You could start your trip by climbing Mount Kilimanjaro, before heading to the Ngorongoro Crater for a short safari. After all that excitement you will be more than ready for a few days of relaxation, and there is perhaps no better place on earth to do that than the sugar white beaches of Zanzibar. The perfect spot for singles, Tanzania is warm, inviting, and the preferred destination for many solo travellers just like you.
The Fiji Islands
If you love sun, sea, sand, sailing and the great outdoors, an Island Hopping Adventure in the Fiji Islands could be your perfect singles holiday. Breathtakingly beautiful and surprisingly affordable, the Fiji Islands really are every bit as stunning as you imagine, and with friendly locals, endless castaway islands, and pristine turquoise oceans to explore, you might just think that you have arrived in paradise.
Peru & Bolivia
Double destination holidays are right on trend in 2016, and if you would like to discover yourself while meeting other people, a trip to Peru and Bolivia could be your perfect singles holiday. You could start with a trek along the magical Inca Trail to Machu Picchu before taking the Andean Explorer train to Lake Titicaca, where you can enjoy some water-based activities before crossing the border into Bolivia.
After a short stop in the capital city of La Paz, you can continue your journey down to the Salar de Uyuni, a ‘must do’ on any Bolivian travel itinerary, before visiting Potosi and Sucre on your way to Santa Cruz de la Sierra for your return flight home.
The world is big and very beautiful, and now that solo travel is widely accepted, you can go out there and enjoy it all by yourself!
