Your complete guide to solo SwimTrek adventures
How do we cater for solo travellers?
Many SwimTrekkers join our trips solo and end up making lifelong connections with others who share a love for good food, stunning wildlife and the open water. A limited number of single supplement rooms are available on most of our trips. However, it’s also possible to book a ‘Roommate Share’ room. That means we match you up with a fellow SwimTrekker of the same gender to share a twin room and pair up for the adventure (subject to availability).
What to expect on your solo adventure?
Of course, it can be daunting when you book that long-awaited swimming holiday, with such a range of locations to choose from. “Do I want the warm Mediterranean waters of the Greek Cyclades?" "Or, am I ready for a more challenging adventure in the rugged fingers of Cornwall's Lizard Peninsula?”
Sometimes, dates don’t match up with friends, or you might not know any other outdoor swimmers in your area. Then another concern might spring suddenly to mind: “Who should I go with?” To which many SwimTrekkers often reply with the single-handed assurance that they’re more than happy to go it alone.
For various reasons, solo travellers are drawn to the friendly atmosphere and shared interests of our various SwimTrek pods. The truth is there’s no such thing as a solo SwimTrek. On every trip, you’ll holiday with a bunch of like-minded swimmers all looking for the same thing. Good news for solo travellers since we all know the best adventures are shared!
With over 40 destinations around the world and more guests hitting the open water than ever before – there’s never been a better time to come swim the world with us. Wherever you go, it’s pretty much guaranteed that you'll meet fellow solo travellers, and you’ll always leave with new friends!
"How was your solo adventure?"
Still not totally sold on the idea of going solo? Take a look at what these SwimTrekkers had to say about their own solo experiences over the years:
1. Aedín C. on a solo trip to the Galapagos Islands
2. Joe A. on a solo trip to the Greek Sporades
3. Miriam Z. on a solo trip to... anywhere!
We hope this helps to remind you that a solo SwimTrek experience doesn't have to be daunting! You'll find so many great opportunities to make friends over post-swim meals and in the heady grip of open water. The freedom of solo travel is fully realised on a SwimTrek trip as well. You can participate as much, or as little, as you like. Our seasoned guides double as master storytellers, safety escorts and advisors. So, you'll never feel alone when you swim the world with us!
