Solo travel, the words itself fill one’s heart with an immense sense of thrill and buzz. As they say, as you move outside of your comfort zone what was once the unknown and frightening becomes your new normal. Solo travel pushes one to their limits and discovers the new being in every human.
The initial days of planning a solo trip may be tiresome and dull. Whether the chosen place is safe, budget involved and many such similar queries draw up your mind. But once you fit into the shoes such journeys will land you into entirely new dimensions in your life. Below enlisted are seven countries for solo travel that will help you to unbox the new ‘you’.
Iceland occupies the first position in the safe-place list of solo traveling. As Wikipedia states, Iceland is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, hot springs, and lava fields. The best experience while in Iceland is witnessing the Northern Lights or the Aurora Borealis. Apart from it, you can go for a bubble bath in hot springs, enjoy a natural spa at Blue Lagoon, trek to a glacier or volcano and visit the Golden Circle route while having an added fun of snorkeling or snowmobiling.
- New Zealand
This island country in the southwestern Pacific Ocean has been in the top picks as one of the safest places on earth. It has become a foremost choice of many solo travelers after making of the film series ‘Lord of the Rings’. The movie set of small ‘Hobbit Holes’ amidst the emerald pastures has become an icon of the realm. A unique biking trail with the name of ‘Alps 2 Ocean’ carries a traveler among the Southern and Northern Islands rendering the traveler some of the jaw-dropping scenery of the hills and sea.
Another top choice for solo travelers is the Swiss Confederation that is home to the snow-capped Swiss Alps. Enjoying a solo ride at Lake Geneva followed by a glass of local wine while chatting with the welcoming Zurich natives make an impeccable solo journey. You can also stroll along some of the giant lakes of this country while observing the street artists with their chisel. You can also go hiking in the Swiss Alps that will fetch you some everlasting views of the valleys and basins.
This landlocked European country is the perfect confluence of the natural and man-made. With a variety of options that include strolling in old museums, libraries, monuments and architecture, trekking to the Alpine range and skiing in Arlberg, Austria affords a perfectly safe and innocuous gateway for solo travelers. A must visit is a music and cultural concert in Vienna, which is primarily famed for its rich cultural heritage.
This Southeast Asian country with the second highest population in the world is a much-desired solo destination of nomads. India hosts high peaks, bottomless oceans, green-wide lands, and parched deserts to satisfy every tang of a solo traveler. India is also treated as a spiritual hub as it homes numerous temples and shrines across its lands. One can enjoy rafting in the swift and turbulent rivers or just quietly relax at the coastline while indulging in an Ayurvedic spa or a meditation hour.
The small island in the east coast of the Asian continent is often referred to as ‘The Land of Rising Sun’. Japan has many ancient and historical cities that carol the saga of a deep-rooted and beautiful land. Arashiyama Bamboo forest, Mount Fuji, Snow Monkey Park and grabbing a local experience at a Sushi restaurant are the most sought things by a solo traveler. A bullet train ride with an exceptional view of Mount Fuji fairly sums up a nomad’s itinerary to Japan.
The North American country of Canada is home to the giant Niagara Falls, vast National parks and the Rocky Mountains. A glimpse of the Polar bear in its northern part is all that a solo traveler needs while in this vast country of US. You can also indulge yourself in mountain biking, ride a bicycle along Lake Ontario, enjoy the seafood and go for a canal skating at Ottawa.
