South American vacations always tends to conjure up images of sun, sea and sand. Of course this is correct for half of the year, or almost all year for those tropical countries lying close to the Equator, but those of you looking for outdoor adventures for singles in the form of a southern hemisphere escape during the US summer will be more likely to find snow, skiing and salsa between June and October. That´s where PowderQuest comes in.
What a better way to spend your vacation than speeding through fresh snow under crisp blue skies to a perfect après ski bar where the rest of your group are waiting with a glass of something local to toast your successful day?
Tour Groups for Singles?
Many single people love the freedom that traveling alone brings, but loathe that part of the day when you would like to share a chat over dinner and a glass of wine. Dining out alone in a foreign country is not the most comfortable of scenarios. Group vacations for singles are a great way to overcome these issues and as a result many travel and tour operators have filled the void by offering trips designed specifically with the solo traveler in mind. You can head off alone during the day if you wish without having to be stuck to the group from dawn until dusk. You can choose to just eat with the others, or to end up socializing into the early hours with them too. Essentially, with these summer getaways for singles you get the best of both worlds. Time alone when you choose; experts who guide you to maximize your time and minimize your costs; and of course, someone to sit with at dinner!
It is however easy to shy away from group travel tours for singles fearing you may end up with a bunch of people all in couples. There are now many options catering for solo travel groups only, but this in itself can end up backfiring as often group sizes can be quite large. Here PowderQuest is different. All trips run with a maximum of 8 participants and are all so finely tuned so that they funnel people of similar skiing and snowboarding experience levels into different groups. Yes, couples do often book on together, but so do heaps of people who join the groups solo. What you will definitely get are liked minded folks who have a passion for the snow led by super knowledgeable guides. A top choice for active vacations for singles.
You could try to conquer these southern slopes alone, but some of these ski resorts are often not so easy to get to. PowderQuest saves you all that planning and wasted time, as well as having inside knowledge of the best places to go to have a great experience in a short space of time. That equals value for money, and that’s pretty high one everyone’s wish list for a summer snow escape, right?
