Group travel for solo travelers: Tips, destinations & benefits

Our planet has so many incredible places that we love to dream ourselves away. To the Inca Trail to Maccu Picchu, to Sahara trekking in Morocco, to the Great Geyser in Iceland, to the beach on Koh Samui. Group travel for solo travellers makes it possible for us to plan our adventure alone without being alone on the road. 

But that's not all: we'll tell you which advantages there are, which travel destinations are suitable for group travel for solo travellers and which tips you can use to find the right vacation for you.



Group holidays for solo travellers: 5 advantages 


There are many reasons to choose organized group holidays if you want to travel alone. We've already mentioned one: You can plan your vacation independently of others. You really want to go to Cambodia, but can't convince any of your loved ones to come along? Have you managed to agree on a destination but don't have time off at the same time? If you join a group tour for solo travelers, you won't have this problem. You decide for yourself when to go where

5 more advantages of group travel for solo travellers

  • Getting to know people: When you travel with a group, you get to meet new people who share the same interests - especially travel - as you. You'll be able to chat, exchange ideas about other destinations and never feel alone.
  • Organize: If you opt for a group trip for solo travellers, all you have to do is choose your destination and pack your suitcase. Your tour operator will take care of the all-round carefree package - including flights, accommodation, transportation, meals and itineraries.

  • Not missing a highlight: Single group tours are led by experienced tour guides. They know exactly which places are absolutely worth seeing - even off the beaten track. You'll experience moments that you would never have come across otherwise.

  • Feel safer: Traveling alone can - rightly - be quite scary. When you're traveling in a large group, you enjoy the protection of others. What's more, tour guides know exactly which areas are safe and which you should avoid.



Which group tour for solo travellers is right for me? 


Do you really want to book your next vacation now, but don't know which type of group holiday for solo travelers is right for you? Do a quick check here: 

1. You need an adrenaline rush? In documentaries, we often see places that hardly anyone else travels to. From the deepest jungles of Borneo to the highest peaks of Patagonia - on adventure trips you create unique experiences. They're for you if you're looking for action. 

2. Do you love being active? Whether hiking, canoeing, climbing or cycling - on active holidays you will experience your destination with lots of action. This is where fun meets fitness 

3. Do you want to relax? Then you should look out for a retreat vacation. On a single group trip, for example, you can go to the temples of India, do yoga together or relax in the middle of nature. These trips are often combined with an Ayurveda cure, so that you feel like a new person afterwards. 

4. You want to celebrate life? On a party cruise, for example, you sail off into the sunset with a sparkling wine in your hand while everyone dances on the deck of the boat. Or you can experience the club scene in a country - with different music genres, drinks and people. 


Which destinations are suitable for group trips for solo travellers? 


A group trip for solo travel can go anywhere. So it's entirely up to you which destination you explore next. On the one hand, that's a great feeling. On the other hand, the huge choice can quickly become overwhelming. 

To help you make your choice, we've picked out our top 5 destinations for group trips for solo travelers: 

1. Cambodia, Vietnam & Thailand 

Mystical temples, colorful tuk tuks, invigorating hustle and bustle, incredible dream beaches - a trip through Asia leaves nothing to be desired. Just when you've taken in all the voices, smells and tastes at the street food market in Bangkok, just a few days later you'll be following in the footsteps of Tomb Raider to Angkor Wat
A single group trip could hardly be more diverse. This Asian adventure is offered, for example, by journaway

2. Peru, Argentina & Chile 

If you're planning a group trip for solo travellers, Latin and South America should definitely be on your list. With weroad for example, you can go on a trekking tour from Buenos Aires to the southernmost city in the world, Ushuaia, and cross majestic glaciers, pristine national parks and even the Strait of Magellan. With Naturally Travel you can travel CO2-compensated to Peru to hike the Inca Trail, observe the wildlife on "Little Galapagos" and visit the mystical Inca city of Machu Picchu. 

3. Morocco 

Enjoy the starry sky over the desert, ride camels through the Sahara, taste the culinary specialties in Marrakech - all this is possible on a group trip for solo travellers. And even more! With Indicotravels you are on the road for eight days and get to know not only your travel companions but also many locals. 

4. Iceland 

We met Janet Newenham in Bali. She had been a travel blogger for years until she decided to take her followers on her travels not just digitally but 'for real'. Since then, she has been organizing group trips for solo travellers around the world. One of the next 2024 trips from "Janet's Journeys" is going to Iceland. There you will travel together to the Blue Lagoon, take a boat trip through the ice and see the incredible landscape including the unique geysers. The special thing about Janet's trips: They are totally personal. The Irishwoman puts all her love into the planning, knows great insider places and locals from her own trips and is happy to answer any questions. 

5. Australia 

Australia is the continent of backpackers. Many people come here to drive along the coast with a van and rucksack, marvel at Ayers Rock in the interior, learn to surf on the most beautiful beaches in the world and meet koalas in national parks. Through the sustainable tour operator 'Forum Anders Reisen' you will find a wide variety of group tours for solo travelers that bring you as close to nature as possible in Australia. 

Other destinations for group tours for solo travelers are:
- Kenya 
- Namibia 
- Indonesia 
- Japan 
- New Zealand 
- the Baltics 
- Canada 
- USA 


Group travel for solo travelers: These are the costs 



The costs for your single group tour vary depending on which provider and destination you choose. 8 days in Europe - for example a tour of Budapest - can be booked for as little as 800 euros. 21 days through New Zealand, Tasmania and Australia cost a lot more. Here you can expect to pay around €4,000

What you should always bear in mind when booking: Some travel offers do not include flights. In this case, you have to take care of your own transportation, which also costs money. 



Tips for finding group tours for solo travelers 


1. Look at the group size. To have a truly individual experience that doesn't feel like mass tourism, your single group trip should be limited to a maximum of 15-20 people

2. Pay attention to sustainability. Some tour operators offset CO2 when booking flights, focus on environmentally friendly experiences such as trekking tours and plan trips in such a way that the locals also get something out of your vacation. 

3. Read carefully whether you are sharing your room with others or whether there is also the option of booking a single room for yourself

4. Speaking of privacy: Make sure that you also have time for yourself on your trip. A full program is nice - but you can only create truly lasting memories if you can let everything sink in in between.

5. Read reviews and experiences from others before you book. What did they like, what didn't?

If you follow these tips, nothing will stand in the way of your group trip for solo travellers.
