What's the plan?
Having a plan as a solo traveller, especially if it’s your first time travelling alone, helps to centre you.
What are your intentions?
Setting intentions for a solo trip away is important for many reasons, chiefly it helps you to focus on achieving what you want from your getaway. Preparation is always key, you are set and ready to go if you know who, what, why, where and when you want to go for your perfect
What and Why?
Arguably the most important question when planning a solo holiday, what do you specifically want to gain from this trip? This can vary extensively from lounging on a tropical beach, a thorough detox, a regimented fitness or sports hit or a tranquil spa experience to calm and nourish the body and mind. This merely scratches the surface of what is available, and you may want a blend of multiple intentions, but it is good to have an idea of what you want to gain from your trip away. This is where the planning really begins!
With Health and Fitness Travel you have a myriad of destinations to choose from dotted around the globe! You might already have some destinations in mind, but it may be worth consulting an expert on the best ones for what you’re hoping to achieve and gain from your holiday. Destinations can vary from opulent retreats, luxury medical escapes, cutting edge spas, to exhilarating adventures hiking in the mountains. With this in mind, it is good to be up to date on the latest travel trends and to consult with a travel specialist who can outline the best destinations for your ideal wellness holiday!
This is important for both financial and weather-related aspects, as different times of the year can be either beneficial or harmful on the bank account and different periods of the year offer more extreme weather climates than others. A lot of this hinges around school-holidays where you will see a rise in prices everywhere, this can also be said for general holiday dates too, such as the Christmas period, or bank holidays. Weather also fluctuates around the globe, a summer season getaway to Dubai is going to be scorching hot, whereas a January trip to France would be very cold, bear this in mind when deciding, and find out the best times to go to your desired destination!
As you will be travelling alone, do you want to meet new people when away or specifically spend some serious quiet time with yourself on your trip? Many of our group retreats offer a like-minded environment thorough spiritual, sports or fitness activities where you could get to know new faces. Equally, many offer the space to allow you a moment of solace away from others and the bustle of the world to reflect, rejuvenate and renew.
What's on your itinerary?
An itinerary is great for planning your day-to-day activities and this can be however busy or free as you like. You may want to spend all day in the spa, so it is good to have a schedule of which specific treatment you want and when - aromatherapy at 2pm with Ayurveda at 3:30pm? Yes please! Or if you’re embarking on a fitness holiday having all your classes, consultations and gym times in one place will ensure you stick to your programme and holiday objectives. Equally, it is also very normal to have a more flexible itinerary, particularly if you’re seeking a more restorative break!
When you book with Health and Fitness Travel, we’ll always let you know what you can expect from a typical day on one of our retreats and can even put together completely bespoke itineraries that fit your goals and objectives for your solo wellness holiday!
