Travelling solo as a woman doesn’t need to be daunting – and on these Culture Trip adventures, you can share epic experiences with other like-minded travellers.

Travel for women tends to involve a few extra considerations, from the safety of a destination to easy access to facilities while on the road. While these factors are important, seeing the world solo is one of the most liberating experiences you can have – and there are always plenty of women travel groups to join. Whether you’re exploring Iceland’s frozen wilderness or relaxing on sun-drenched Croatian beaches, these small-group tours with Culture Trip are ideal for single female travellers.

Island and bar-hopping on Croatia’s Dalmatian coast

Affordable, friendly, sun-soaked and packed with ancient towns lined with mazy cobbled streets, Croatia is a great choice when it comes to solo trips for women. On Culture Trip’s eight-day adventure along the Dalmatian coast, you’ll hop from the mainland to the islands and back, starting in Split and travelling south to Dubrovnik. Along the way, you’ll sample Hvar’s pulsating nightlife, relax on dreamy beaches on a trip to Vis island, try local wine at the vineyards around Lumbarda and plenty more. Our Local Insider will accompany your group throughout, showing you a side of Croatia most solo travellers don’t get to experience.
