Calling all singletons, could TrekAmerica solve your dating dilemma?

6th February 2013 Print

From couples flocking to cheesy restaurants to gaze into each other’s eyes, to men fighting each other in the street for that last red rose, being a singleton on Valentine’s Day can be nightmare – a veritable minefield as you try to dodge the loved-up mob heading to the last table at Pizza Express, but it doesn't have to be this way say TrekAmerica!

Why not make a mid-February resolution to get out more, meet some new people and who knows what might come your way? We’re not talking speed dating and blind dates, oh no. They’re SO 2012. 2013 is the year to try a new dating style and who said you couldn't do it in a foreign country with a group of like-minded travellers? Small group adventure tour operator TrekAmerica have been keeping a secret, they have their very own stash of cupid’s arrows and have a track record to prove it.

Designed with FUN in mind, 70% of people who embark on a TrekAmerica tour travel alone and although they can’t promise you’ll meet your soul mate, they can guarantee you’ll have a fantastic time looking.

With over 50 unique itineraries from three to 64 days that take in the very best of the USA, Canada, Alaska and Central America, even if you don’t find ‘the one’ you’re sure to finish your tour with a new group of friends for life.

Still not sure whether to cancel your online dating subscription? Here are a few stories of people that met on a TrekAmerica tour and haven’t looked back since.

Sarah Cuthbertson and Steven Cameron met on the 64 day Trailblazer tour in 2010. Fast-forward two years and 2012 proved to be an extra special year for the happy couple as Steven proposed to Sarah on Christmas day. She said yes!

Lone travellers Becky and Johnny met on a TrekAmerica trip in 2009 and after a big night out in New Orleans, they realised they were more than just good mates. The pair married in June 2012.

Inspired? You can cross the USA from New York to Los Angeles in 21 days from just £1379 (£1,929 including flights) on the Southern Sun tour. Taking in mountains, monuments, canyons and caverns, you’ll see the best of the USA’s landscapes as well awesome cities such as New Orleans and Las Vegas on this amazing road trip.

Looking for a slightly shorter trip? Why not join the 14 day Westerner 2 which departs on various dates between March and October 2013 and costs from £999pp (£1,779 including flights). Experience the best of the west between four fantastic cities, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Diego and San Francisco.
