Frequently Asked Questions
Who are the Nomans Adventures for?
Our trips are created with solo female travellers in mind, connecting like-minded, fun loving women by exploring the world together.
Our typical age bracket is 25 – 45 years old but we welcome women of all ages! We’re less of a specific demographic and more of a mindset. We come from all corners of the world and different walks of life, but we have a shared sense of adventure and desire to experience the world, not just see it. It is the diversity and kindness of women who come on our trips that is one of the greatest pleasures of travelling in our group!
Why just women?
Why not!? There is some magic in exploring the world with like-minded women who share you desire for adventure!
The energy that is created when we’re together is incredibly unique and powerful. The group dynamics, kind of conversations that emerge on the trail, and the level of honesty and support we see in our women only groups is pretty hard to beat!
We’re all about coming together, supporting and encouraging each other to step outside of our comfort zones and take on the world!
All our trips are designed for women by women, and the Nomans Adventure Leader is always a kickass girl.However,when we choose local suppliers (guides/instructors etc.), we focus on the best ones with no regard for the gender.So there might be still be plenty of men around!
How big will the group be?
On average, our groups range are anywhere from 5 – 14 girls, depending on the trip.We want to keep the group cosy and make you feel like you are going with your girlfriends on travel, that’s why we keep it to maximum 14 people(it is usually less).
Can I come solo?
Of course! In fact, most of the girls are coming solo and a few are bringing a friend or two.
The great thing about our trips is that this is a great opportunity to meet other awesome women, out from your usual circle,and make new friendships!
Do I get my own room?
All accommodations are shared, you will most likely be sharing a room with 1,ocassionally 2 more girls. Don’t worry, once your trip is confirmed you will get access to a private WhatsApp group where you can start connecting with the other girls on your trip in advance!
What is your travel style?
When you travel with us,you do more than just see the world.You experience it.
Each trip fully immerses you in the destination.Our tours bring you closer to the world,its people,their culture,and their way of life,it is all about the connections!!
Nomans Adventureis definitely not a mainstream, luxury tour operator. We value authentic experiences.
And of course,we like to indulge in luxury every now and then but discovering the world from a private car or chain luxury hotel it is not quite what we are into.
We do think that you can really get under the skin of the place byeating where locals eat,taking local transport and sleeping in charming places run by locals. But fear not-we will love the way we travel!We use private vans as often as local trains an tuk-tuks,carefully choose the most charming accommodations full of local character(think converted church in Scotland, lovely boutique hotel in Portugal,Buddhist temple in Japan or traditional ryad in Morocco) and we promise wewill bring you to the best spots for sampling local flavours!Charming and unique places,challenging and rewarding experiences-all carefully selected to provide you with a lovely time and an authentic feel for the region you are in.
How much free time is there?
We know you are an independent woman and we value your freedom!!
Each adventure is a perfect mix of being together and time on your own to do the things you love the most. Every trip is carefully designed to give you the best experience of the place,including unique activities and authentic cultural experiences,while still giving you plenty of free time to explore on your own.If you want to.
What about overtourism?
Nomans Adventure works just with local businesses and services because changing lives through travel isn’t just about travellers,it is about ensuring local communities see and feel the benefits of tourism as well!
We deeply care to have a positive impact on the places we visit after we are gone and are always striving to leave the place a little bit better.
We strongly believe in the truly transformative power of travel, for all sides involved.
And yes,we have all seen this Anthony Bourdain’s quote a hundred times. Still love it none of the less:
‘Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s OK. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.’

Is the itinerary guaranteed?
Definitely not!

Our small groups allow us to play according to our group’s dynamics!
