In the mountains as a solo traveller
Whatever type of Icicle holiday you are on, be it climbing, skiing, or trekking, you are being guided in mountains and they are a magical place, where sharing the experience with others really adds to it. This page outlines our support of solo travellers.
Travelling Solo
Over half of our bookings are from people travelling by themselves. In fact it is normally three quarters of the bookings. The composition of most groups is usually a fairly even split between men and women. One of the great benefits of our trips is that they are designed to allow you to be independent when you want to be, but also provide security and company whenever you choose.
  No single supplements
If you are travelling on your own with Icicle, you will automatically be put in a shared accommodation, with a fellow member of the group. Most importantly, you do not pay any additional supplement for travelling as a single person. If you wish for single accommodation, this can be arranged as an upgrade on most trips. Our focus is on you having a great holiday, where the group bonds well.
  It's like being with friends
Similar types of people are attracted to our style of courses, treks and expeditions, so you'll have plenty in common with other members of the group before you even meet. In addition there's nothing like a challenge to bring people together - a night in a snowhole, ice climbing for the first time, or standing on a summit. Many people make friendships that last well beyond the course.
  Some client feedback
From the feedback page: "excellent with supremely capable people who were very responsive and sensitive to individual needs", "we formed a close bond with everyone in the group and came to look upon the tour leader as a friend more than anything else", "this was definately the best activity holiday I've had in a very long time. I achieved everything I had hoped to, and more besides".

Any further questions?
A key part of choosing a company is being able to come and talk about your plans with an experienced course advisor face to face. In an increasingly virtual world, we know our clients value speaking to real people, getting open and honest advice. The vast majority of our clients are British, and our office and outdoor store is based in Windermere in the English Lake District.

Get in contact to arrange a meeting, and come in for a coffee to discuss your course in person with a trip advisor.
