Interested in a solo holiday in the not-so-distant future where you can get stuck into a new location, seeing all the nooks and crannies? Now all you have to do is decide where you’ll be going.
Whether or not you decide to travel completely alone or join a solo walking holiday tour, here’s a bit of inspiration just for you!
The Amalfi Coast
If you want a holiday full of hiking and landscapes, the Amalfi Coast in Italy is an absolute treasure trove.
There is an abundance of trails for you to choose from, with some footpaths having existed since medieval times. Views of the gorgeous Mediterranean Sea are available in no short supply here. Add to that the steep gorges, leafy valleys and lemon groves and you’ll know that you’ve found the prime walking spot.
A European city break is the perfect way to ease yourself into solo travelling if it’s new for you. And if you’re looking for a destination, what better place than Berlin?
There is much of historical interest. For starters, the remains of the Berlin Wall cuts through the city. Once a barrier to prevent people from Soviet-occupied East Germany from fleeing to the West, now it draws in millions of visitors each year.
There’s also Anne Frank Zentrum. This small museum is full of detailed writings and videos about the life of the most well-known Holocaust victim, a young girl full of hopes and dreams.
Berlin is a hotspot for museums. Go to Museum Island and brose them to your heart’s content.
And hey, you can even take the Eurostar to Berlin if you don’t want to fly.
If you’re craving the sunshine, Fuerteventura is a friendly haven for solo travellers and groups alike. This Atlantic island is pleasant and warm most of the year. What’s not to like about powder white sand and vibrant turquoise water?
Cofete Beach, Corralejo Beach and El Castillo Beach are a few unmissable spots.
It’s hard to find a more stunning European capital than Vienna. Solo travellers love the cosy cafes, vibrant nightlife and fairytale palaces. If you’re a foodie, you won’t want to pass up the opportunity to try Vienna’s famous chocolate cake, Sachertorte.
Walking the streets is satisfying in and of itself, but another way to admire the grand buildings is by taking the Ringstrasse. This tram names the State Opera House, the National Library and the Parliament among its window views.
So there you have it, just a few of the most interesting and eye-catching locations for solo travellers. Where will you go first?
