Adventure Seeker


For the Solo Adventure Seeker, the world is a playground of thrilling experiences and breathtaking landscapes. Picture yourself diving into the turquoise waters of Australia's Great Barrier Reef, hiking the rugged trails of Patagonia in Argentina and Chile, or navigating the dense jungles of Borneo in Malaysia. Imagine scaling the majestic peaks of the Swiss Alps, white-water rafting in the gorges of New Zealand, or sandboarding down the vast dunes of the Namib Desert (Yes, I've done it and have the pictures to prove it!). These destinations offer not only stunning natural beauty but also endless opportunities for adrenaline-pumping activities and awe-inspiring discoveries.

Getting around is half the fun

When it comes to transport, flexibility and accessibility are key for the Solo Adventure Seeker. Renting a 4x4 vehicle can give you the freedom to explore off-the-beaten-path locations and remote areas at your own pace. For those who prefer guided adventures, joining local tour operators who specialise in extreme sports and outdoor activities can provide both safety and insider knowledge. In countries with well-developed public transportation, such as Switzerland and Japan, trains and buses offer scenic and convenient ways to travel between adventure hubs. Don’t forget to consider biking or even hiking as modes of transport in regions with well-marked trails and paths.


Your ideal holiday might include a multi-day trekking expedition through the breathtaking landscapes of Nepal’s Annapurna Circuit, a wildlife safari in Kenya’s Maasai Mara, or a thrilling canyoning adventure in the gorges of Slovenia. You might seek out surfing hotspots along the coast of Portugal, mountain biking trails in British Columbia, or scuba diving expeditions in the coral reefs of the Philippines. These trips are designed to push your limits, ignite your passion for adventure, and provide stories that will last a lifetime.

What to pack

Packing smart is crucial for adventure travel. Lightweight, durable gear is essential—think multi-functional clothing, a high-quality backpack, and reliable footwear. Don't forget safety equipment like a first aid kit, a multi-tool, and navigation aids such as maps or a GPS device. Depending on your destination, you might need specialised gear like a climbing harness, snorkelling equipment, or a portable water purifier. Pack layers to adapt to varying climates and always keep essential documents and valuables secure and easily accessible.

Local Insights

Connecting with local adventure communities can enhance your travel experience. Join online forums or social media groups (big hint here to join the Going Solo Facebook Group) before your trip to gather tips from other adventurers and locals. Once on the ground, seek out local guides who can introduce you to hidden gems and off-the-beaten-path experiences. Respect local customs and traditions, and learn a few basic phrases in the local language to help build rapport. Be open to spontaneous adventures—sometimes the best experiences are the ones you didn't plan for.

By incorporating these elements, your Solo Adventure Seeker narrative will be rich with information, inspiration, and practical tips, making it compelling for your audience to stay engaged and look forward to more content.
