If you’re unable to quit the full time job for a life on the road or if you are very happy with your holiday allocation but plan to fill it with extraordinary locations and experiences. Then small group travel or activity group operators will be able to provide you what you need.
I am an Intrepid Travel fan however here are my recommended best of the rest
Explore www.explore.com – more than 400 tours worldwide, from leisurely explorations with beach time in Europe to treks up Kilimanjaro. About half of its customers are travelling solo (60 per cent females), mostly aged 30-65, though the more expensive trips attract the 50-plus. However be sure to check the group size.
Spice www.spiceuk.com – organisation of activity clubs with a membership largely comprising singles aged 35-55. A big choice of adrenalin-fuelled days out as well as chill-out detox or walking weeks in Turkey and the Costa Blanca.
Exodus www.exodus.co.uk – multiple activity options including walking, biking and teenage activities for family groups.
