Deciding to take a big trip abroad can be daunting, especially if you’re tackling it on your own. Luckily, OneSeed attracts travelers from all over the states and beyond, many of whom travel solo.
Considering joining a group departure? Here are a few reasons why group travel may be right for you.
You Enjoy Meeting New People with a Shared Passion
Joining a group can be a great way to get to know to people you wouldn’t normally meet. Travelers may vary in age from their 20s to 70s with so many different experiences and points of view - but everyone shares a love of adventure and the outdoors. Tackling a tough trail or reaching a seemingly impossible summit can be a life changing experience, and it’s even better when you have new friends to support you.
It’s a Cost-Effective Way to Travel
Our group expeditions are priced to accommodate several people, while taking a private tour as a solo traveler will cost quite a bit more. Traveling solo can often require a single room supplement fee, but OneSeed offers to match solo travelers with others who want to share rooms and save money.
You Believe that the Strength of the Wolf is the Pack
Upon returning from Kilimanjaro this summer, a traveler made a great point that the strength of the wolf is the pack. Twelve unlikely travelers (6 of whom arrived solo) tackled Africa’s largest freestanding mountain together. They encountered foggy days, bluebird skies, hours of steep hiking under the stars, and a wild and unexpected ice storm on the summit. Most everyone made it to the top, not because they were the strongest or even the most experienced hiker, but because the group supported each other to get to the summit.
Guaranteed Departures No Matter the Size of the Group
All group departure dates are guaranteed, even if only one person is signed up. While this is rare, it’s good to know that no matter what happens or how many people join the expeditions - you’re hitting the trail with everything taken care of from meals and lodging, to transportation and world class local guides.
Doesn’t sound like your cup of tea? Take a private trip! Our private departures follow the same model as our group expeditions, but only run when requested.
