Solo Travel Guide

Going Solo? You're Not Alone!


Over and over, we hear from our solo guests that a MT Sobek small-group adventure is an exceptionally friendly way to travel. Our trips have a good mix of couples and solo travelers—about a third of our guests are traveling on their own. A solo adventure is not an adventure alone! Traveling solo is one of the few times in life you get to be selfish. Choosing to travel solo means that you can choose your own path – whether it’s a hike to take in majestic mountain views or diving deep into another culture.

Traveling by yourself can be a journey of self-discovery. Solo travel can help you clear your mind and give you some much-needed space.

On Your Own, But Not Alone

Choosing a small-group adventure means meeting ready-made friends just as eager as you are to hit the trail and explore. Our local Adventure Guides are on tap to lead you to the hidden treasures of each place you visit, plus a skilled support team managing all the logistics of your trip from itinerary planning to hotel booking so you can focus on the adventure to come. These hospitable guides also make sure to watch out for everyone’s needs and interests, whether you are a single traveler or are traveling with others. They take an active part in making sure that no guest gets left out at the table or campfire and that you’ll be enjoying a great meal and lively conversation with your fellow guests.

Low Single Supplements

Standard practice in the travel world is to calculate tours based on double occupancy in accommodations. Most companies charge a single supplement to cover costs when a guest reserves a private room for themselves. We’re proud to say that our single supplements are some of the lowest in the business.

Save With Our Single-Share Program

If you are comfortable sharing your room with a same-gender roommate, sign up for our Single-Share Program. When you sign up for one of our scheduled small-group trips at least 96 days before your departure, you may opt in to this program where we charge you 50% of the single supplement. We will try to match you with a same-gender roommate. If we find a match, we’ll refund the 50% single supplement.* If you book your trip within 95 days before departure, we will charge you the full single supplement and, if you are matched with a roommate, refund it to you. Please talk to an Adventure Coordinator or Trip Consultant when booking to discuss your specific options.

*Our Single-Share Program is not available on all departures. Please note that our Single-Share Program is not available on all departures, does not apply to Pre- and Post-Tour Extensions, Boat-based and Custom and Private trips.
