10 Best Countries to Backpack Alone

If you were a born traveler, you must have asked yourself about the 10 best countries to backpack alone. Travelling is fun when you’re with family and friends, but there are times when you would want to answer to your inner wanderlust all by yourself.

Backpacking alone is fun because of the thrill. You go somewhere you have never been before, immerse yourself in a different culture, and enjoy the spontaneity of exploring the world without an itinerary. The adventure tends to be more exciting when you backpack alone, because you allow yourself just to go with the flow and really go to places you want to see, instead of just being part of a group tour where you’re forced to leave even when you feel like staying.

10 Best Countries to Backpack Alone


Most people want to travel to the beach to unwind, and we have a separate list for that too, the Top 8 Beaches in the World.

Back on the main topic; backpacking and beach trips are both fun and cool. However, there are also some disadvantages in backpacking alone. You have to be more careful in choosing where to travel on your own. This is why when we ranked the 10 best countries to backpack alone, we used the three criteria you must use yourself when planning where your next trip would be—the safety of the place as determined by the Global Peace Index, the happiness ranking of the country, which would determine its people’s attitude towards tourists, as determined by the World Happiness Report, and the daily travel cost from Budget Your Trip.

Using those three criteria, we came up with these ten beautiful countries you can definitely explore by yourself.
