Balanced Adventures for Solo Travellers

This is the classic Flash Pack formula – itineraries filled with immersive experiences – but at a more relaxed pace and a more affordable price. Perfect for those seeking balance from their global adventures.

So, what does that actually mean? It’s about slowing things down without compromising on quality. You’ll visit the same amazing locations, but fewer of them in one trip. Your activities will still be culturally immersive – from shamanic rituals to street food tours – but with minimal physical challenges. You’ll stay in the same carefully chosen three- to four-star hotels, with more free time to actually enjoy them. Plus there’ll be no domestic flights.

Looking for adventure without the exertion? We get it. These trips are for you.

Balanced Adventures FAQs

Why are these trips cheaper than other Flash Pack adventures?

In short, the more you do, the more you spend. While our Classic adventures are fast-paced and packed full of activities, our Balanced adventures are more relaxed with less time spent travelling and more free days and half-days to chill out in each location. You can expect the same high standard of accommodation and bespoke experiences but with fewer inclusions (such as meals out and excursions), which helps to keep costs down.

Why should you go on a Balanced adventure?

Adventure travel doesn’t have to mean high-stakes activities like mountaineering or whitewater rafting. At the same time, ‘balanced’ doesn’t mean your trip will be any less exciting. This style of adventure is designed to take you away from the tourist trail into the heart and soul of a destination, with time to really immerse yourself in the local culture. If you prefer to travel at a more leisurely pace with a less intense schedule and no physically demanding activities, then these trips might be just what you’re looking for. The hardest part? Deciding where to go…

At Flash Pack, we ensure you’ll get the most out of your Balanced solo adventure with our handcrafted group travel packages. Learn more about how it works.

What’s the difference between Flash Pack’s different travel styles?

All our adventures are friendship-focussed, with immersive activities, hand-picked three- to four-star accommodation and experienced local guides… but which trip style will you choose? 

Classic: The perfect mix of adventure and comfort in some of the world’s top destinations. These trips are active and fast-paced with internal flights, excursions and most meals included.

Balanced: Even more affordable, slower-paced itineraries with more free time, minimal physical challenge and no internal flights. Fewer excursions and meals out but no compromise on quality.

Bucket-List: Once-in-a-lifetime trips with bespoke accommodation, exceptional service and exclusive activities. More expensive than our Classic adventures but worth saving up for.

Short stay: Three- to five- day trips offering the same level of immersion, adventure and group-bonding as our longer itineraries but in an affordable bite-sized package.

Why should you embark on a group solo trip?

We understand group solo travel can be daunting. But it just might be one of the best things you’ll ever do. Taking on new challenges is what we’re all about at Flash Pack and stepping that little bit outside your comfort zone is often a revelation.

You just need to be brave enough to take that first step – and trust us to take care of the rest… In return, you’ll meet like-minded people – all in their 30s and 40s – and make amazing new friendships along the way.

Why choose Flash Pack for your group solo travel adventure?

Back in 2014, our co-founder and keen traveller, Radha Vyas, spotted a gap in the group-tour market for people in their 30s and 40s. So, she set up Flash Pack to deliver immersive, experience-led group adventures for like-minded people at the same life stage. The vast majority of Flashpackers (98%, in fact) arrive solo, before travelling together – and leave having made a whole bunch of new friends.
