Singles holidays ideal for over 40s

Travelling solo in your 40s doesn't have to mean travelling alone. Join our like-minded travellers on our solo small group tours. Share your experience with other adventure-lovers of all ages, still with plenty of time just for you.


Solo holidays ideal for the over 40s

Our small group adventure holidays are perfect for single travellers in their 40s and above, whether you’re a seasoned solo traveller or this is your first singles holiday. You’ll be in great company on any of our tours. Our average small group size is just 11 people and usually includes around half solo travellers and the rest couples or friends travelling together, spanning a range of ages. So whether you’re looking for a walking holiday or a wildlife tour, a cycling holiday or a cultural trip, there is an adventure waiting for you.

Our trips attract people of all ages who love to explore, discover and share their love for travel. Yet our schedules are flexible enough that you can choose to do your own thing if you’d prefer. Enjoy your singles holiday for over 40s at your own pace. Our trips are graded from relaxed to full-on, so you can choose a trip that’s right for you, whether you like a busy itinerary or plenty of downtime to explore on your own.

You’ll have all the excitement of travelling solo but with the safety of travelling in a group. Plus, all the day-to-day planning has been taken care of by our expert local tour leaders who will help you get to the heart of your destination.

Adventure holidays ideal for singles over 40

Our Cultural Discovery holidays are our most popular trips of all - from taking a Grand Tour of Morocco to exploring temples and food markets among other must-sees on our Simply Japan trip, there's the perfect culture-packed trip for every single traveller over 40.

Led by expert guides, every one of our cultural small group trips is designed to offer an authentic experience, beyond the tourist attractions and into the heart of the local culture. On some trips you'll even have the opportunity to stay and eat with locals, and travel on local transport - you'll truly have all the excitement of a solo trip, with a carefully planned itinerary so there's nothing for you to worry about but how to capture the moments!

Speaking of the locals, many of our adventure holidays suitable for over 40s offer you the chance to get up close to some of the world's most wonderful wildlife. The trip of a lifetime for nature lovers, our Wildlife trips could show you the Highlights of Costa Rica, including its lazy sloths, noisy monkeys and vibrantly coloured frogs and birds, or perhaps you'd like to spot lemurs, chameleons and rich birdlife as you explore the 'Lost Continent' of Madagascar?

If a safari holiday has always been on your Bucket List, our 15-day Botswana Wildlife Safari takes you into the carefully protected habitats of Africa's most magnificent wildlife so you can see white rhino, elephant, buffalo, cheetah, and lion in their natural and happy states. Holidays for single travellers don't come more unforgettable than this.

Active holidays ideal for solo travellers in their 40s

Whether you're an avid walker, a keen cyclist or always enjoy trying something new, at Explore we offer action-packed small group activity holidays that make solo travel over 40 even more fun.

On our best-selling Toubkal Climb Moroccan trekking adventure, you'll be guided through lush forests and remote villages before embarking upon an ascent of Jebel Toubkal - North Africa's highest peak, from where you can take in the panoramic and breathtaking views of the High Atlas. Or if you like to stretch your legs but don't want to tackle a tricky incline, go On Foot in Northern Cyprus to follow trails through the Besparmak Mountains, and admire its beautiful flora and fauna, Crusader castles and majestic coastline.

Prefer to feel the wind in your hair on a bike? We offer many two wheeled-trips too, where we'll even provide your bike! Whatever level of cycling you feel ready to take on, whether that's a moderately challenging journey along Southeastern European roads as you Cycle Albania, or a breezy, picturesque cruise along Croatia's Dalmatian Coast - there's a cycling holiday to suit you. We also offer ebike options on some of our departure dates, meaning you can really savour the sweeping views as you simply glide along!
