Hello! Today we're talking about solo travel. Now, I know what you're thinking. "Solo travel? That sounds lonely as hell." But let me tell you something, it doesn't have to be.
Let's talk about Skyhook trips. Now, about 50% of the guests on Skyhook trips book solo. That's right, half of the people on these trips are travelling by themselves. But that doesn't mean they're gonna be sitting in their hotel rooms crying into their pillows. Oh no, my friends. They're gonna be out there, living their best lives and making new friends.
Most Skyhook trips have 8-12 people on them (this one is the Tour du Mont Blanc)
Here's how it works. After you book your Skyhook trip, you'll be able to see who else is in your group. You can chat with them through the chat tool on your Skyhook dashboard. Say hello, introduce yourself, or even arrange to meet up before the main trip if you're arriving in time to do a bit of sightseeing.
And let me tell you something, these people are cool. They're adventurous, they're open-minded, and they're ready to have a good time. You might meet someone who's into the same hobbies as you, or someone who's from a totally different part of the world.
Some people have even found love on Skyhook trips! That's right, I'm talking about marriages. It's crazy to think that a simple Skyhook trip could lead to finding your soulmate, but it has happened. I mean, think about it. You're on a trip with a group of like-minded people, exploring new places and having fun. It's the perfect environment to get to know someone and form a connection.
And if marriage is too much of a commitment for you, don't worry. Most people are just here to make friends and hiking buddies. Plenty of people end up booking other trips together after their Skyhook adventure. I've seen it happen firsthand. Just recently, there was a group of total strangers who did the Tour du Mont Blanc together. And guess what? They ended up booking another trip together! That's the power of Skyhook trips, my friends.
So, if you're still hesitant about booking a solo trip, let me tell you that Skyhook trips are the way to go. You'll meet new people, make new friends, and maybe even find love. And if all else fails, you'll have some awesome stories to tell at your next family gathering or dinner party. Get yourself booked on – you won’t regret it!


Travelling solo is a great experience - even if it's scary the first few times! You don't need to pause your adventures to wait for someone to join you. Skyhook has many adventure trips that solo travellers love.
