Solo Travellers

For many years Aurora Expeditions have provided ‘No Single Supplement’ options, allowing our passengers travelling alone the opportunity to join our voyages without the added expense of having to pay a single supplement. Making the ‘big trip’ on your own has never been easier and we believe our small group expeditions provide the key elements of a great expedition: adventure, fun and peace of mind.

Apart from providing security and peace of mind, our small group adventures provide an ideal opportunity to share experiences with your fellow travellers. Whether you’re exploring a historic site, enjoying a guided wildlife walk or reaching a summit on the continent of Antarctica, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the challenge alongside a small group of like-minded travel companions.

By their very nature, our expeditions attract people who have a passion for the natural world and enriching travel – seeing new places, enjoying new experiences and meeting new people. Whatever your age and however experienced or inexperienced a traveller you are, you will be more than welcome as a solo traveller on one of our small group tours. You may join the voyage alone, but by the end, you’ll feel as though you’re travelling with a group of friends.

That is fine. We offer the option to pay a 50% surcharge for a sole occupancy cabin (on top of the twin occupancy rate).

On our expeditions, the average ratio between solo travellers and others (whether couples or friends) is approximately 30:70. However, this varies. If you are keen to know more about the others booked on your specific voyage, talk to one of our Expedition Experts for more details. We are always keen to help ensure you are booked on the most suitable voyage for you.

Generally, the split between women and men travelling solo on our trips is 50:50, however in recent years there has been a slight rise in the number of female solo travellers. If you’d like to know more about the others booked on your specific voyage, talk to our Expedition Experts today.

The age groups of passengers on our voyages vary hugely. Traditionally the majority of passengers have been over 50, however in recent years we have seen an increase in younger guests; particularly with the lure of our adventure activities, photography workshops, adding voyages to a round-the-world trip etc. We would say expect the age range to be diverse & rest assured that a good, mixed range of ages on the expedition makes the experience all the more fun.
