6 Fabulous Destinations for Solo Female Traveller

written by Ilona Chin

Solo Female travelling is something that every woman should do at least once in a lifetime. It helps you rejuvenate yourself and explore the world just by being yourself. Safe is a huge concern for solo female travellers and an important factor when determining if a city is one of the great places to travel alone. Well, taking the first step in travelling solo sounds a bit intimidating but the world is not as scary as some might think if you have a positive attitude and general street smarts. We rounded up 6 of the best solo destinations around the world where you can feel safe and hit the open road.

1. Iceland

Even though Iceland’s nickname of “The Land of Fire & Ice” sounds intimidating, solo travel is safe and easy here! Iceland is famous for its extremely low crime rates, earning it the coveted title of “safest country in the world” in 2018. For female solo travellers, the trip possibilities are limitless; whether you plan to take in those mind-boggling landscapes, soak in one of the country’s many thermal pools, ice climb or drive the Golden Circle, you’re bound to run out of time to see it all. Prefer not to go it completely alone? Join Globus 8 days Iceland Adventure which shared guaranteed for a solo traveller.

2. New Zealand

New Zealand is dare we say it, very traveller’s dream! Between its incredible natural beauty, world-class beaches, vibrant cities, scenic vineyards, emerging food scene, and friendly locals, there’s is something for everyone. Explore Auckland’s buzzy harbour, taste wine on Waiheke Island, skydive over Lake Wakatipu or tackle the Southern Alps through Mount Cook National Park and Queenstown. Embark on a mesmerizing journey across the north to south islands of New Zeland, discover the boiling mud pools and roaring geysers in Te Puia Thermal Reserve, catch a glimpse of the local indigenous group of Māori people’s culture and heritage.

3. Canada

America’s northern neighbour has a reputation for kindness. After losing yourself along the hilly, cobbled streets of Quebec City, chowing down on poutine and more elevated French cuisine in Montreal, or exploring the sights and sounds of Vancouver or Toronto are two of the safest cities to travel alone in Canada. The sheer beauty of the Canadian Rockies has seduced many a solo traveller, who’ve taken up everything from passing through Banff National Park backcountry to hiking past glacial lakes and waterfalls and bedding down in mountain huts. 

4. Switzerland

From the drop-dead gorgeous mountain views, azure lake, rolling meadows, alpines wildflowers, and the Rhône river backdrops, Switzerland is one of the most picturesque countries. The Swiss Travel pass works for every mode of public transportation (trains, buses, and boats), though we recommend taking the train for views of Switzerland’s famous alpine regions. It doesn’t get much easier to experience the charming streets of Zurich and explore deeper into the Italian regions of Ticino, spot the contrasts in architecture, culture, culinary and of course language among Switzerland three main cultural regions.

5. Patagonia

If you’re hoping for some space to think and breathe on your solo adventure, it might be time to tackle Patagonia. Full of natural wonders, Patagonia is probably an ideal location for solo travellers looking for self-discovery,“ Between the wildlife, the scenic nature, and the chances to get your heart pumping, you won’t have time to worry about what’s going on back home.  Discover the unknown land of Southern Patagonia, which spans across Chile and Argentina, to what is nearly the end of the world with its towering peaks carved by age-old glaciers and incredible landscapes.

6. Amsterdam

Amsterdam is a fantastic place to hang out on your own, the canals are yours to explore as you discover the unique culture and nightlife of the city. The capital of the Netherlands is well-known for its past, the elaborate canal network and the architecture of their iconic, narrow houses. Amsterdam offers way more than just some thrills! As you wander the sidewalks by foot or bike and explore the Old Centre, Red Light, Dam Square and Museum districts, you might run into some warm and laid-back Dutch locals. 

If your resolution for 2019 is to travel more but you’re tired of waiting for your best friend or partner’s scheduled to match with yours, you should consider going on a solo trip by yourself. Sometimes you just need to stop waiting, pack your bags and set on your dream trip @
