More and more people are choosing to go on solo vacations, which offer the chance to have fun and experience something new without coordinating with other people. If you love the outdoors and need a break from life, check out these five solo trip ideas for the outdoor adventure–seeker.
Hiking in Yellowstone
If you consider yourself an outdoor enthusiast, then taking a trip to Yellowstone National Park has to be on your bucket list—and you should check it off sooner rather than later! There are tons of things to do and see at Yellowstone, but few things beat hiking its beautiful trails while surrounded by gorgeous landscapes and wildlife. Yellowstone has numerous different types of trails and diverse landscapes to experience, from lake trails to mountain hikes to footpaths that take you right to Old Faithful.
Scuba Diving in Hawaii
Few things in this world can compare to the awe-inspiring beauty of the wildlife under the sea. Scuba diving is something every adventure-seeker should try once, and what better place to do it than Hawaii? Get an up-close look at the stunning reefs, fish, and animal life below the waves for an experience you’ll never forget. You’ll need to get licensed first, but that doesn’t take long, and it’ll be well worth the wait!
Fly-Fishing in Alaska
If you’re an avid angler or you enjoy being surrounded by nature, consider taking a trip north to Alaska and experience some of the best fly-fishing in the world. The magnificent vistas of Alaska alone are worth the trip, but you can also catch some salmon and trophy rainbow trout, which anglers come from all over to fish.
If you’re new to fly-fishing, book a guided tour so that an expert can show you how it’s done. Before you go, grab some fly-tying supplies so that you can make your own fly ties for good luck!
Rock Climbing at Red Rock State Park
Rock climbing can be an adrenaline-filled adventure, and few sites in the world can compare to Red Rock in Arizona. If you’ve never done it before, you can take a guided tour, which will allow you to meet new people. And if you’re an experienced rock climber, you already know Red Rock’s reputation for the best climbing in the country!
Kayak the Colorado River
If you love watersports, try tackling the Colorado River in a kayak. The Colorado River stretches for hundreds of miles, so you can go at a leisurely pace on one of its calmer stretches or do some white-knuckle rafting. Make it a weekend kayaking and camping trip to see as much of its natural splendor as possible.
Which solo trip idea for the outdoor adventure–seeker sounds good to you—rock climbing in Nevada or scuba diving in Hawaii? Whichever adventure you choose, we’re sure you’ll make memories that will last a lifetime!
