Have you ever considered a trip where you would travel alone...?


To travel alone is a brave decision.

There was a time when no one would consider going on holiday on their own unless they were an intrepid adventurer. Setting out to the far corners of the globe with nothing apart from a backpack and a camera seems exciting, but can also be scary and this puts many people off.

But, in the last few years, solo travelers have been on the rise. This could be partially down to the success of the Oscar nominated film ‘Wild’ (starring Reese Witherspoon) inspiring audiences, and also due to the growing popularity of companies such as Back-Roads Touring. They report that 50% of their UK guests are now solo travellers, which suggests traveling alone is set to be the next big travel trend.
