Take The Leap and Travel Solo! These Companies Can Help You Experience the World like Never Before

Traveling solo is on the rise, and companies are taking notice! More than ever, jet-setters are opting to explore the world on their own. You can plan the perfect vacation exactly how you want and explore your destination with only you in mind. Without another person as a safety net, you'll also have the opportunity to overcome your fears, muster up the courage to talk with other people, put yourself out there, get lost and discover the explorer inside of you.



Take travel into your own hands and explore the world solo – visit the iconic Christmas Markets down the Danube River. Travel back through centuries as you walk along cobblestone streets through grand cities and historic towns bedecked with twinkling Christmas trees and lined with wooden huts gleaming with handcrafted treasures.

“Don’t be afraid to introduce yourself to people, even if it’s a couple or an entire group... Doing this, I met six wonderful people during my Christmas Markets cruise, and it was instant friendship.” – Judy Nutter, AmaWaterways solo traveler
