Traveling alone is life-changing. Solo adventure travel makes you feel like a whole new person.
Considering doing some solo adventure travel of your own? Here at Surtrek, the leader in custom South American travel, it’s what we’re all about. Read below for our top five reasons why solo adventure travel needs to be added to your travel bucket list.
From eating and drinking alone, to hiking all by yourself, solo adventure travel is a growth experience for your mind, body and soul. Solo and adventure travel, individually, can be a test of patience, fear and strength. Put them together and you’re in a whole new territory… both literally and figuratively.
Ironically, solo travelers are usually good with people! They have to be—if you’re traveling the world by yourself, you have to be able to connect with other people to get around, find food and get fully immersed in the experience. When you travel in a group, you tend to stick with those you know. Go alone and you’re somewhat forced to meet locals, mingle with other travelers and branch out. By the time your trip is over, you’ll have a slew of new friends in interesting places.
How adventurous are you? When you do adventure travel solo, you can find out the real answer to that question. Everyone knows the true benefit of solo travel is having the freedom to do exactly what you want. That includes having the freedom to be as adventurous as you want, too.
We’re not saying you can’t do this with other people, but when you travel alone, you get to make sure you visit the destinations on your bucket list. When you travel alone, the world is your oyster.
Both traveling alone and trying new adventures can be scary; put them together, and you’re in for a life-changing experience. Solo adventure travel is a great way to find out what your limitations are, and in the same vein, learn to trust your capabilities.
