Trips for Introverts
While many travel to connect with others and make new friends along their way, there are some who like the quiet, prefer the company of the self and like to keep to themselves. Here is a list of some of the places preferred by introverts.
The North Pole: this had to be first on the list because what can be more isolated than the North Pole? (It was a trick question, the answer is The South Pole). With so many things to do, star gazing, losing yourself while watching the northern lights and encountering the wildlife or walking on glaciers. All these activities can be enjoyed perfectly while being alone there!
Iceland: from horseback riding, enjoying a dip in a natural hot pool to witnessing the northern lights or hiking on a glacier or ice caving, Iceland is a place that will leave you mesmerised. All these activities can be enjoyed freely here without the compulsion to talk to anyone around.
Banff, Canada: here is where you either can relax in your cottage or at iconic hotel rooms and take in the view of the beautiful ice clad mountains for the whole trip or you can do everything that satisfies your adventurous spirit. Hiking, climbing a mountain, horseback riding or dog sledding are the few activities along with the most famous Johnston Canyon icewalk.
Kyoto: what can be more calming than starting a trip with serene and calm temples of Kyoto? Kyoto has some really beautiful temples like Kinkakuji Temple, Ryoanji Temple, Kiyomizudera Temple, Ginkakuji Temple etc. apart from these, there are so many other places to visit in Kyoto that can be enjoyed freely without having to meet or talk to other people. Some other activities include walking through Fushimi Inari-Taisha Shrine or enjoying a panoramic view of the city from the Kyoto Tower or dining at a restaurant by the Kamogawa river and many more things!
Bhutan: Bhutan is the place to lose yourself. It is a place that is beyond beautiful and even the most extroverted people go speechless when they visit Bhutan. You can visit the Taktsang Monastery, walk on Bhutan’s longest suspension bridge or trek in the Himalayas or attend some of the festivals to see the local culture of Bhutan.
There are so many more places that are less frequented by travellers and there are always so many activities to do alone. Some more places that can be added to the list are Patagonia, Myanmar, Gimmelwald, Switzerland, Malta and Galapagos islands.
