Generous Adventures is a nonprofit travel auction that regularly hosts bidding to benefit the environment and is based in Alaska.

At any time, there are more than 100 ongoing online auctions. (Note: These offerings occasionally are for one person, only!)

Trips vary, but most tend toward the exotic, and all are run by environmentally friendly tour operators. The latter get exposure from their donations, charities get some money and travelers can take pleasure in where their money is going.

The following offering caught our attention. Restaurant 301 was among the very first solo-friendly restaurants featured in "SoloDining.com," the newsletter, back in 1997!

The Inn's restaurant 301 offers guest artfully prepared regional, seasonal dining, replete with produce harvested from the inn's own organic gardens. The 301 wine list has been acknowledged by many to be one of the finest in the world.
