35 Amazing—and Easy!—Solo Trips

From the beaches of Belize to the heights of the Himalayas, there’s no need to wait when the world is calling! Here, Budget Travel readers’ favorite solo travel adventures.

Paris. Salzburg, Berlin, Mexico, the Caribbean, and the U.S. I have met some wonderful people because I was forced to talk to strangers!” —Gina Seashore

“I eased into solo travel two years ago with a week in Cancun, then did Florence and Amsterdam this spring. Solo travel lets you explore the world while exploring the nooks and crannies of your soul.” —Samantha Lee

“Traveling to New Zealand alone was one of the most refreshing experiences I’ve ever had. I zorbed in Rotorua, rode horseback on a black sand beach, sat in a hot spring, and learned how to drive on the opposite side of the road! Traveling by myself gave me time to get out of my own head and to really absorb a culture in a new way.” —Candice Shores

“While traveling in India, my partner got sick. I spent the day on my own, taking pictures and mingling with the locals. I rented a horse and visited the Himalayas with a Sikh guide who told me all about his family, temple, and job. It was amazing to be transported to such lifestyle if only for a day. The natural beauty and wild monkeys helped as well.” —Esther Pujol Rodriguez

“I do love traveling alone. I try to combine my work as an academic (a presentation somewhere), then a two to three week trip that may include stops to see family and friends, a cruise, or just touring on my own. My latest adventure was a solo cruise from New Orleans to Copenhagen where I have friends.” —Kate Reynolds

“I spent a week in Alaska whale watching, dog-sledding, horseback riding through the mountains, and eating fresh salmon. It was hands down the best week of my life! I had so much freedom and as a young woman it was empowering to travel alone and satisfy my wanderlust. It has definitely sparked a travel bug and I can’t wait to take my next solo adventure, hopefully this time to a new country.” —Hannah Baker

“After a meeting in Lima, I flew solo to Cusco. I spent a day sightseeing in that area, then a day in the Sacred Valley followed by a day at Machu Picchu. It was great as I met people from all over the world, people I wouldn’t have met had I been with family or friends.” —Carl J. Woodin

“In 1978, I went backpacking solo thru Europe. I just finished the Camino de Santiago solo in May. With both I met lots of great people I probably would not have met if I was traveling with friends.” —Patrick Smith

“I moved to Abu Dhabi alone and I have since been to Kuala Lumpur and Venice alone.” —Christine Morris

“I’m traveling solo in Scotland right now! Exploring Edinburgh and the Fringe Festival, and will be going to the Royal Military Tattoo. I prefer to travel with loved ones, but I’d rather travel alone than not at all!” —Virginia Nicolai

“I’ve done several, but my most enjoyable was a solo overland adventure traveling by motorcycle from Texas to Tierra del Fuego, with side trips to the Galapagos and Antarctica.” —Troy Wong

“Twice, about to go on the third. First time was to Natal, Brazil, the second was to Florianopolis, in the south of Brazil, and next will certainly be the most amazing one: to Italy, in three weeks, where I’ll spend 36 days, part of which in Rome. Vasto, and the rest about to be decided.” —Giovana Boselli

“Among many others, I’ve taken solo trips to Bali, Indonesia; Peru; Italy; the U.K.; Yellowstone; Mexico; and Zanzibar. Even in situations with groups, it’s possible to do solo excursions. When you’re alone, you’re free to do what you want when you want. You’re only limited by your imagination and your budget.” —Anthony Ho
