USA adventure tours

Our verdict:

The land of the free is also the home of adventure travel, from Death Valley to Alaska, eye-popping national parks to iconic cities, not to mention island hopping and volcano spotting in Hawaii. For solo travellers, a small group tour can be the perfect option for singles looking to share the thrill of the open road.

Intrepid Travel says

Our small group adventures worldwide attract a significant percentage of solo travellers of all ages – most are between 25-45 years but there’s no age limit. All share a passion for travel, discovery and adventure – and the camaraderie that comes from travelling in a small group (our average group size is just 10 people).

All our trips are led by expert local guides, all of whom not only know their home turf inside out but also have the professionalism, personality and enthusiasm to make a good holiday great for everyone. We use local transport and locally-owned accommodation wherever possible, plus camping on a number of itineraries – it’s all about getting under the skin of a place with an adventurous spirit.

Our USA itineraries range from three to 29 days from the east coast to the west coast, Alaska to the Deep South and Hawaii too.

Some of the most popular options include Vegas to San Francisco, a six-night road trip which takes in Yosemite, Death Valley and the Sierra Nevada including three nights camping under the stars. Hike through Zion National Park and Monument Valley on our eight-night Utah Parks Circuit.

If you have more time, it’s hard to beat the Best Of America – spend three weeks travelling from New York to San Francisco via Washington DC, Nashville, New Orleans, New Mexico and the Grand Canyon with a mix of camping, hotel and hostel accommodation.

Over on the east coast, how about this nine-night Chicago, Niagara and New York adventure? You’ll also spend time in Boston, Montreal and Toronto with hotel accommodation throughout.

You can also follow Route 66, explore Alaska’s Inside Passage on a ferry, or go island-hopping in the islands of Hawaii.

For solo travellers on all our trips, we include twin share accommodation with another group member of the same sex. On some trips, you can opt to pay a single supplement.
