Travelling alone can feel both incredibly rewarding and daunting. If you’re hesitant to take the leap into the world of solo travel, or if you want a hassle-free travel experience, joining a group travel adventure is the perfect solution.
There are many benefits of travelling with a group and when you travel with Inspired Adventures, you’ll have the built-in camaraderie of fundraising for a common cause that is close to your heart, and a challenge that you’ll be completing with the support of each other. Many of our participants join an Inspired Adventure alone, so you won’t need to worry about being the only one in that boat.
Read on to find out even more of the benefits of embarking on this journey. Adventure awaits!
Meet like-minded people
Inarguably, one of the best parts about group travel is the opportunity to meet new people from all walks of life. When you join a team and decide to embark on an epic challenge together, you instantly become part of a community with a common passion for travel, fundraising, and pushing yourself out of your comfort. The bonds formed during these adventures often lead to lifelong friendships and connections from around the country or even around the world. We’ve even had solo travellers meet their future life partner on an Inspired Adventure!
Give yourself the chance to grow
This may be the first time that you have embarked on a solo travel adventure, doing a multi-day trek, or telling your story to people who understand you. Embarking on a physical challenge surrounded by people who are just as passionate as you gives you the chance to lean into self-reflection and personal growth. Whether you’ve traveled across the oceans to join this adventure or it is a short drive down the road, pushing yourself in new ways is one of the best ways to feel accomplished.
Explore without being alone
Group travel offers a great balance between free time and structured activities. While you’ll have the chance to explore new places on your own, you’ll also have the support and guidance of a knowledgeable local guide who can provide valuable insights and ensure that everything runs smoothly. You can enjoy the freedom of solo travel, with the added security and camaraderie of being in a group. Plus you’ll have no shortage of fellow travellers to join you on your explorations, if that’s what you’re in the mood for.
Take on a physical challenge
Our group travel adventures can consist of multi-day trekking, cycling, or even kayaking. These experiences may take you to the tops of mountains, the depths of deep valleys, and through regions that are far more valuable to visit slowly rather than zooming through in a car. On an Inspired Adventure, you’ll challenge yourself to embark on a journey that may have once felt impossible, and to prove to yourself that you are capable of more than you originally thought.
No need to wait for the perfect time
Waiting for the perfect time when your friends or family can join you on your adventure travels might mean putting your dreams on hold indefinitely. When you join a group travel adventure, you can embark on your adventure whenever you feel ready and know that you’ll be supported every step of the way by Inspired Adventures and the rest of your team. It’s all about seizing the moment and embracing the opportunities that come your way!
Join a community of solo travellers
If you have any concerns about being the only solo traveller in the group, rest assured you almost certainly won’t be! Inspired Adventures attract a diverse range of participants, including other solo travellers seeking new adventures. And with a common cause driving you all together, we find that everyone on the team is keen to get to know their teammates whether they’ve signed up with a friend or alone.
