Traveling alone is an incredible experience that can teach you all about yourself as you’re discovering the world around you. But if you’ve never done it before, it can also be incredibly intimidating. That’s why it’s a good idea to start with one of these destinations, all of which are safe and relatively easy to travel in.


There are so many reasons why Iceland is a great place to choose as your first solo trip destination. Not only is it easy to reach from many parts of the world, but it’s also known for being remarkably safe. Everybody there speaks English, and there are a lot of organized tours you can join if you don’t want to be entirely on your own.


Growing in popularity every year, Croatia is like an oasis of safety for solo travelers in Eastern Europe. Everybody speaks English and there is excellent infrastructure, making it a perfect location for a road trip. Plus, it’s more affordable than other similar locations like Greece and Italy.
