Ten unusual places to visit as a solo traveler

Any of our small group tours are perfect for solo travelers as you'll be sharing your experiences with like-minded people, and traveling with an expert local guide. Skip the typical tourist destinations and discover ten of our most unusual places to visit as a solo traveler.



Nestled in the deep gorges of the Greater Caucasus Mountains, Georgia’s Svaneti region is home to impressive snow-capped peaks and remote historic villages. As you embark on a Georgian Caucasus trekking trip, you’ll first stop at Becho, situated in the shadow of Mount Ushba. Later, hike from Jvari to the stunning lakes of Koruldi for views of snow-covered glaciers and several mountain summits.

For a country full of variety, look no further than Colombia and our Contrasts of Colombia trip. Not only do we visit the Caribbean coast and the lush, green coffee region, but we contrast the modern city of Medellin with the more traditional Andean culture found in Bogota. The food is a definite highlight of Colombia, and you'll get plenty of opportunity to try it, from Bandeja Paisa, the national dish, to pandebono, a traditional bread made with cheese, frequently served with guava paste. You'll even get to have a go at cooking it yourself with a cookery class in a traditional hacienda.

Benin is certainly not a common vacation destination, but there are lots of unique hidden gems to be discovered. The people are what make this country, and you'll have plenty of opportunity to meet the locals on our Benin and Togo Voodoo Discovery tour.  The trip includes staying in a stilt village and watching dancing mask and Voodoo ceremonies; this is an itinerary that couldn't be matched if you were traveling on your own.

Jordan is a popular destination right now, but why not explore it in a different way? Our Jordan cycling trip is ideal for solo travelers looking for an active vacation that combines moderate cycling with history and culture. Descend by bike down towards Petra, where we spend three nights, giving ample time to explore the vast site. Once you've walked through the deep and narrow gorge at the entrance you'll be met by a guide for a tour of all the key parts of this astounding 'Rose City'.
