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.
Make your solo trip one to remember by visiting one of the world’s most remote archipelagos: the Galapagos Islands. These volcanic islands, scattered across the eastern Pacific ocean around 1,000km (621mi) off the coast of mainland Ecuador, are home to an extraordinary abundance of wildlife that influenced Darwin’s theory of evolution. On this exclusive five-day trip, you’ll be based in Santa Cruz and San Cristobal – where you’ll meet giant tortoises, swim with sea lions, snorkel with penguins and hike across barren, lunar-like lava fields.
You’ll receive a warm welcome wherever you go in South Korea, a country that prides itself on decorum and hospitality. On Culture Trip’s 10-day jaunt around this extraordinary country, you’ll get to know its unique culture – from singing with strangers in Seoul’s raucous karaoke bars to practising martial arts and meditation at a rural Buddhist temple. Along the way, you’ll take in spectacular mountain scenery, enjoy authentic meals with local families and learn about life over the border from a North Korean defector.
