Hiking Tour

Hi

Can anyone recomend/used a group mainly for solo's for hiking not general walking. Im very open to anywhere in europe, preferably in september.

I do appreciate this is mainly for people travelling alone but am finding this a bit tough to locate.

Thankyou

I am a hiker fanatic. I had hiked mostly in Asia. I thought the Jungfrau region in Switzerland or the French Alps region would be awesome

Hiking is very specific cl. When you say not walking but hiking what exactly do you mean?

I don't think you would find a hiking group mainly for solos. You mention 3 criteria. 1)hiking 2)solos 3)Europe. That would be a niche market and unlikely to get enough people to travel. Especially when they would all have to have holiday at the same time.

So if you could clarify what you require in the way of hiking we could help you search.

have a look at this company.I have done several holidays (Italy,Russia,Baltic states,Crete,Czech Republic) with them.Its not a singles company but do some single holidays.most of the groups I have been with have been a good mixture of singles and couples though the age group does tend to be 30-60 with the 40-60 age group being more common.They do several specific under 40's holidays too.

In May this year I went to Crete on a walking holiday with Solos. Twenty one in the group, ages ranged from 40-ish to mid- seventies. This holiday was classed as "easy" walking and was usually around three hours of walking with ups and downs, the "medium" and "difficult" holidays would be longer/more strenuous. Several people on the holiday were repeat Solos customers, it was my first but I would definitely go again.

Also been on a walking holiday with Exodus (to the Amalfi Coast). Group size of sixteen....four couples, two friends and six singles. I think the mix is probably fairly typical of an Exodus trip. Again, several repeat customers and I would go again.

If you want a real hidden gem, consider Ukrainian Carpathians. Incredibly beautiful in autumn:
