Bolt balances the best parts of solo adventure (freedom and flexibility to do your own thing) with the best parts of group travel (excellent trip design and the opportunity to meet amazing people). We're a community, curated by invitation through our Discovery Process: build bonds with the fellow members you'll be traveling with before your trip begins, and stay in touch for years to come.
Bolt's community is curated -- we seek to add members who add wonder, joy, and excitement. Our membership spans diverse ages, interests, occupations, and geographies, and our active trips take place around the world, focused on slower, more intentional travel.
Bolt creates unique, epic travel experiences around the world, ranging in cost from $500 to $3000. We build our trips to be unique and geographically diverse -- giving you great options for different travel styles, activities, and locations throughout the year.

Bolt's community extends beyond the trips themselves. We come together online, before and after our adventures, to continue to build connections via video hangouts, online chat, member profiles, and more.

Bolt’s mission: to thoughtfully bring community to travel, creating the world’s most wonderful, kind, awesome group of like-minded explorers. Before joining, prospective members talk to a current Bolt member, as well as someone from Bolt’s team. This Discovery Process helps ensure alignment around our mission, ethos, and your expectations. Every traveler on every trip is a Bolt member who has made this investment in our community.
"Joining Bolt and taking my first trip (Sailing through Greece) has expanded my mind, heart and travels. I bonded with members from other countries, and have even been invited to visit them in their home-state/country. I'm grateful to Bolt for allowing a solo traveler to feel so safe and comfortable in a foreign place...not to mention having such great members to bond with."
"I joined Bolt because I love the concept of traveling with like minded people, still young at heart, regardless of age. It's refreshing to not have to make any decisions or organize anything myself! There's a great diversity among Bolt members and I've made friends who I still keep in contact with. We're planning a reunion tour next year!"
We met under the fog in Golden Gate Bridge before driving, strangers soon to become friends, to a remote gazebo built into the mountain side. The trip’s scenery just kept getting more amazing from that point: hiking to a 12K summit, dipping into hot springs, the most intense Milky Way surrounded by millions of stars viewed from our private mountain vista. Great company with new friends."
My husband and I had a fabulous experience on the overland trip in Baja. We're in our 60s, and we delighted in the camping/overland experience. Our fellow travelers were adventuresome and lots of fun to be with. The campsites were absolutely stunning and often times it was just us and the wildlife. It was amazing how well this trip was provisioned with great food which turned into very tasty meals.
