Sometimes, you just need to get away from it all. To strike out on your own and forge your own path. And there’s no better way to do it than through luxury solo travel. When you step out of your comfort zone, you can discover new ways of thinking and living. Discovering unfamiliar cultures and distant lands at your own pace and on your terms.
However, the luxury solo trips you can browse below are far from lonely or awkward. No, these are spellbinding, highly-curated journeys designed specifically with the luxury solo traveller in mind. Unconstrained, joyous, and free. We’ve worked closely with our travel experts and local contacts to refine experiences that perfectly match the needs and desires of those embarking on solo travel. They’re not ‘normal’ trips for one. They are not part of a group tour (we do not offer group tours). Instead, they’ve been designed from a singular point of view. Yours.

We find there are usually two types of solo travellers. Those who want to immerse themselves in a culture and explore a country, and those who want to do the very opposite, and detach themselves from almost everything and explore the wilds of the world. With that in mind, we’ve broken these types of experience into two categories, below.
Like Ernest Hemingway or Rebecca West before you, nothing is as enriching or rewarding than exploring the vast landscapes of our planetary wilderness. Cities and highways. Airports and shopping malls. These things are big and loud, but much of our world is quiet as the night – and demands to be explored.
For those in the know, there’s our ultimate ‘go it alone’ experience: Get Lost. We’ll lose you in the wilderness, and we’ll help you find your way home.
Solo journeys into the great outdoors.
The concept is simple. With Get Lost, we’ll drop you off in the middle of a beautiful ‘nowhere’, and then we’ll help you find your way back home. From the sands of Morocco to the Mongolian steppe. You’ll disconnect, re-engage, and push yourself. It’s a trial, a test of character. And it’s like no other travel service on earth.Find out more

Earlier this year, Chloe—a Black Tomato client—became the first traveller to return to Mongolia after Coronavirus. And she travelled solo. This is her story.
Earlier this year, Chloe contacted our travel experts; requesting a three-week solo trip across Mongolia. Only 48 hours later, she was on the ground.
“What they managed to create for me within that timeframe”, she said, “was the trip of a lifetime”.
Her travel expert, Rob, worked with Chloe over those hours to curate something entirely different and entirely hers. She would help nomadic families prepare for their winter migration. She would learn the art of hunting with eagle riders. And she would cross mountain and steppe on horseback.
“I’m about to depart on the plane that will take me away from Mongolia after the most unforgettable three weeks.
“I have so many emotions leaving this place. The people are as hard as the environment that they live in, but their hearts are just so warm. I was inspired by everybody I met, especially by the way that they openly appreciated and looked after one another. I’ve got a lot to digest.”
Working closely with our local partners and experts on the ground, we were able to access people and experiences that you simply can’t plan for yourself. We have worked in Mongolia for years, and it is this local knowledge that helped us to make Chloe’s trip so very full of life.
“Riding camels across deserts, motor biking and horse riding over mountains, speaking with monks and shamans, chasing wolves and wild horses”
Throughout, Chloe had the support and welcome of the local families and our expert guides. In the very heart of a thriving community in one of the most beautiful places on earth, she travelled solo – but was not alone.
This was the second time I had the opportunity to travel with Black Tomato and I can say without hesitation that I will be doing it again as soon as I have the chance. From the moment I made the initial phone call through to just before departing, they were professional, responsive, and reassuring,
Working with James at Black Tomato was truly one of the best experiences. He made sure I had a the trip of a lifetime in India and especially since I was traveling alone, it was so comforting to know I could contact him anytime.
Black Tomato is the epitome of bespoke. Not only will your trip be 100% curated to you, you will never have a team more invested and caring about you as a person. My Get Lost trip was wild, beautiful, special, and challenging in all the ways I was hoping.
