Solo travel for over 50s & 60s

There’s no need to wait for a friend to say ‘yes’ to an adventure - not when you travel with us

Whether you've got more time to spare now that the kids have flown the nest, you’re free from the 9-5 grind, or you want to explore the world with eyes that see things a little differently than your younger self, the best travels of your life may be just around the corner. Our trips are for people of all ages and backgrounds - united by a love for travel, a thirst for adventure and an insatiable curiosity about the world. With a range of trip styles, a passionate local leader to handle the logistics and a small group of travellers just as excited to discover the soul of a destination as you are, the only thing you need to do is decide where to go.

Our trips

Our trip styles

Premium

Our Premium trips feature our best accommodation, most comfortable transport and exclusive experiences led by our most experienced leaders.

Comfort

Designed for those who want more inclusions, our Comfort trips offer a higher standard of accommodation, larger vehicles and more included activities.

Original

The classic Intrepid style. Our Original trips include some activities and stay at more hotels than Basix trips—an ideal choice for those who want a taste of everything.

Basix

For travellers on a budget, our Basix trips keep inclusions to a minimum. They’re about value and lots of free time to choose the activities and extras that you want to do.

Why choose us

Authentic experiences with a local leader

Stuffy coaches, flag-touting tour guides and ‘seeing the sights’ isn’t our vibe. We prefer culturally rich experiences – led by a local – that take you behind the scenes of a destination. Our itineraries are packed with unique insights into local life. We're talking hands-on pastry-making classes with local Macedonian women, watching a traditional dance performance on the sand dunes in Pushkar or sleeping in a lush eco-resort in the Amazon.

We’ve found that it’s not always about the places you go but the people you meet along the way. Our trips are designed for people of all ages and with all sorts of life stories. With an average group size of 10, you'll get to know each other beyond the pleasantries over long dinner conversations and shared experiences. With a little luck, the friendships you make on your trip may last long after you’ve unpacked your suitcase at home.

Safety, logistics and convenience

As exciting as travelling is, it often involves a fair bit of planning. While we're sure you're well equipped to handle any situation, the beauty of travelling with us means we'll do the heavy lifting and take care of the nitty-gritty details so you can focus on what you're here to do: travel! From navigating border crossings to booking bus tickets, bridging language barriers to cultural dos and don'ts, sit back and enjoy yourself while your leader takes care of everything.

We understand that people travel for different reasons. That’s why we’ve created a range of travel themes and styles to suit every Intrepid traveller. From our Basix style with simple accommodation and plenty of free time to our Premium trips featuring our best stays, experiences and leaders (with our Original and Comfort styles in between), choose what suits you and get ready for an unforgettable experience.

Inca Trail Express

Sarah · Traveled June 2024
I felt the guides tried to personalize the experience, for example, I’m learning Spanish and they would let me practice my Spanish with them. I felt they tried to get to know everybody and it was really important to them that we understand their culture. They were very patient and quick to respond. The tents were comfortable and the porters were amazing, all the food tasted like it came from a nice restaurant rather than the kitchen tent and waking up to hot coco tea and a bowel of hot water to wash our faces made the early mornings more tolerable.

Classic Morocco

Claire · Traveled June 2024
This trip went so much better than we had ever imagined! The local guides were amazing and really knowledgeable. Our trip leader Mohammad went the extra mile to make us feel cared for, supported and safe in new and different environments. Would definitely recommend this trip for people wanting to visit Morocco for the first time.

Classic Morocco

Elinor · Traveled June 2024
Although we approached the Classic Morocco 8 day Comfort Tour with a certain amount of intrepidation being 70 + yrs, we were pleasantly surprised. Activities were of interest to our entire group, ages ranging from 26 yrs onward. If considering it Just Do It!
