One of the best things about our holidays is the opportunity to enjoy others’ company and make new friends.
If you’ve been wanting to take a trip, but have been put off by the idea of travelling alone, one of our guided walking holidays could be just the ticket.
We think that one of the things that makes our holidays extra-special is how sociable they are. They bring together people that have the same interests and outlook, so it’s not surprising that people get on well and often form lifelong friendships.
Walking is a very social activity anyway, as it’s easy to chat to the people around you. And because our tour leaders will take you off the tourist trail so that you experience the place in a much deeper and more authentic way, there’s always plenty to talk about!
All of this is probably why about half of the people in our holiday groups are typically solo travellers.
Travelling solo doesn’t have to be more expensive either. If you want to, you can choose to share a room with one of the other walkers, which keep the costs down (this option however is not available whilst we are practicing social distancing rules). If you prefer to have your own space, several of our holidays have no single room supplements – a great money-saver for solo walkers.
They include all sorts of experiences. The Peak District, for example, the coast of North Yorkshire near Whitby and Scarborough, or Northumberland’s coasts and castles. All require moderate walking, and don’t charge an additional supplement for a single room. (As usual, the cost covers half board accommodation, all transport to and from the walks, and a dedicated tour leader; but not things like insurance, entrance fees or personal expenses.)
Here's a list of our bestselling holidays in the UK that don't charge a single supplement
Walk the hilltops, dales and gorges of Britain's first National Park on this 5 night holiday exploring the highlights of the Peak District.
Enjoy five days of walking and sightseeing amongst the rugged coast, ancient castles and charming gardens of Northumberland - an area steeped in history and natural beauty.
5 nights exploring the North Yorkshire coast and rolling moorland landscapes from our base at Ravenscar between Whitby and Scarborough.
Explore the dramatic coast and picturesque interior of Guernsey and two of the other islands of the Bailiwick, Sark and Herm. We’ll walk some of the best stretches of the coast, with wonderful cliff-top paths and fine views out to sea.
The Orkney Islands have something for everyone. There's stunning coastal walking, fascinating history, World Heritage archaeological sites and beautiful scenery. This is a very popular holiday and due to the size of the hotel our rooms do sell out quickly. It's advisable to book this holiday as early as you can to avoid disappointment!
