Traveling is a great experience to share amongst friends and family, but traveling alone can be inspiring and can be an experience like no other. There are definitely places that are better to visit by yourself than with others – and we have some great options here that are ready to inspire you on your next solo adventure!

Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and is also the largest city in the country with about 2 million people in the metropolitan area. The city is always busy and has a ton of beautiful architecture and is known for its world-renowned shopping. If you love mythology, make sure to stop by the goddess Gefjun fountain, which tells the story of how Denmark was created. At night, the fountain lights up different colors which is an incredible sight to see.

Auckland, New Zealand

Auckland is the largest city in New Zealand with a population of about 1.4 million residents. The city is known as the “City of Sails” because of how many high sail boats and yachts they have in their harbor. Auckland has some of the most beautiful beaches (a three-kilometer stretch to be exact), which are packed full of not only the most gorgeous white sand but a lot of people and it’s a really great place for a solo traveler to meet some new friends.

Hilo, Hawaii

Hawaii is one of the safest places one can visit in the United States, and it’s one of the most beautiful as well. Hilo is the largest settlement on the island of Hawaii, with a population of over 40,000 people. A solo traveler can take a tour of the Akaka Falls State Park to do sightseeing and see the 400-foot high waterfall. Hilo is also home to the Mauna Loa Macadamia Nut Corporation so you can snack on some delicious chocolate covered nuts as a treat (and not feel guilty about it!).

Oslo, Norway

Oslo is the largest city in Norway and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Norway. It’s full of fantastic art, such as that of the Vigeland Sculpture Park, which attracts over 1 million visitors every single year. It has over 200 pieces of iron, granite, and bronze art on display. If that isn’t enough to keep you satisfied on your solo adventures, Oslo also has one of the busiest night lives in all of Norway, so you’ll definitely be able to meet some new people here.

Malmo, Sweden

Sweden is one of those countries known for how beautiful the culture, as well as the people, are. Malmo is the third largest city in Sweden, and because of its location, it makes for a really great active vacation, as the city has some of the most incredible golf courses in the world. Malmo has some of the best shopping in all of Sweden, with some really unique and excellent environmentally friendly shopping and restaurant choices.
