Travelling solo can be intimidating but once you’ve tried it, you’ll be hooked. After all, when you’re not dragging along a travel buddy, you can go where you want to, see what you want to see and do what you want to do. Travelling on your own also forces you to be more open, which in turn makes it easier to meet new people. Canada is the perfect country for exploring by yourself. To get you started, here are some of the top Canadian trips for solo travellers.
