FAQ About Solo Trips For Women Canada

Why Should Canada Be On Every Solo Female Traveler's Bucket List?

Canada is an excellent solo trip destination for women because there are so many incredible places to visit, dishes to sample, and attractions to see. Apart from the abundance of things to see and do, Canada is an excellent destination for women to take a solo trip because it is breathtakingly beautiful and easy to travel around.

Is Canada Safe For Solo Female Travelers?

Although it is safe to travel solo as a woman in Canada , and many GAFFL users have planned solo trips there, it is important to remember that crime can happen anywhere. Always carry yourself confidently, use common sense, and be aware of your surroundings when traveling to ensure your safety.

What Are The Best Places to Visit For Solo/Single Women?

New Zealand
If you love adventures, sports, and nature, New Zealand is the place to be! Nature has blessed New Zealand with some of the top picture-postcard views and tourism spots. Here, you will find friendly locals willing to help tourists find their way, and communication is easy since English is the native language. You don’t have to worry about getting lost either since it’s easy to get around in New Zealand. All in all, a small country made of two main landmasses, New Zealand is a beautiful country to explore as a solo female traveler.

Iceland
It’s easy to get around Iceland by yourself and most of the locals speak English, so you can always ask around for recommendations, directions and tourism guides from these friendly and helpful locals. Iceland is also known to be a country that supports gender equality, so you don’t have to worry about being catcalled and can wear whatever you want without being judged as a woman.

Switzerland
The beauty of Switzerland is like that of one straight out of a storybook. With lakes, valleys, glaciers and snow-capped mountains, Switzerland is considered to be one of the safest destinations for solo female travelers.

Japan
The people here are kind, courteous, friendly and helpful and will not make you feel unsafe or judged. The Japanese are very respectful and disciplined. It is easy, safe and affordable to get around. They also have separate female-only transportation and accommodation options.

Canada
Home to multiple world-class cities, Canada is also considered to be one of the safest countries for solo female travelers. Canada’s panoramic views, lush greenery, and emerald lakes also make it one of the best destinations to take a solo trip for women. Canadians are also known to be some of the friendliest people in the world.

Norway
Famous for its Northern lights and midnight sun, it is also one of the best destinations to take a solo trip as a woman. Everyone speaks English more or less in Norway, so communication is not that hard. It also has a low crime rate, making it a safe destination for solo female travelers.

Australia
With glistening beaches, colorful multicultural cities and awe-inspiring wildlife, Australia is a great destination to visit for women traveling alone. It’s home to the Great Barrier Reef and known to be one of the safest destinations for solo female travelers. There are various options for accommodations such as hostels and hotels to choose from, which are usually safe for females.

What Are The Best Solo Female Travel Tips?

Do your research
It is very important to do your research before you decide on a destination for your next solo trip. Be aware of the weather, natural disasters, the current political situation of that country, any possible political unrest, the culture of that country and their norms, and how they dress.

Take baby steps
To be real, we all face questions and fears when we try to decide on our first solo trip. What if we’re not safe by ourselves? What if we get into trouble? That’s why you can start by starting small and visiting nearby cities to break that fear and build confidence.

Look around!
When using maps, pay attention to your surroundings and not just the direction on the screen, to be aware of what is going on around you. Make the best use of your Smartphone
- Share your location with your friends and family so that at least one person is aware of where you are in case you need to be located.
- Use Maps - Download an offline version of maps for the location you are visiting, so that you don’t get lost in case you lose your internet connection.
- Use a Translation App - It is important to have an idea of the local language and to understand what is being said to you.
- Carry your phone charger and portable charger with you at all times, because in a country where you are all alone, your phone is one of your most important belongings.
- Get an International Phone Plan so that you can stay connected with your friends and family.
- Save the nearby precinct’s number on your phone when choosing a destination, so that you can always call the police if you’re in danger.

Why Should Every Woman Try Solo Travel At Least Once?

Going on a solo trip as a woman can be very empowering. Women are often expected to fit into the nurturing role of our societies. However, just because a woman can do that, doesn’t mean she has to bury her desires and only take care of the people around her. A woman’s needs are just as important as the needs of the people around her. Going on a solo trip means it's just about you. You do what you want and when you want to do it. Once you create that itinerary and pick up that heavy backpack just by yourself, you realize how self-sufficient and independent you actually are.

Benefits Of Taking A Solo Trip As A Woman

Discover Yourself
Who are you away from home, when you are not an employee or a boss, a mother, a wife, a daughter, or a sister? When you go on a solo trip, you get time to reflect and reconnect with yourself. You get to focus on who you are and what you want.

Meet New People
When you travel with friends or family, you’re more likely to stay within the group, and hardly interact with strangers. If you travel solo, you are more likely to interact with the people around you, whether it’s because you need recommendations or directions, or simply because you are lonely and crave human interaction. If you travel solo, you can collect friends from all over the world.

Free Your Mind
Traveling solo means you don’t have to worry about others. You get to focus on yourself only, and even though our society stereotypes it as being selfish, it doesn’t matter, because, at the end of the day, you and your mental health are what matter.

Embrace Your Personal Freedom Without Being Judged
When you travel solo, you can do whatever your heart desires, without the judgmental eyes of society following you. You’re away from home, and no one really knows you, so it doesn’t matter what they think. You'll most likely never see them again.

Get a Confidence Boost
Once you realize you have made it to a destination by yourself, you’ll realize how independent and capable you happen to be, which will boost your confidence. You are responsible for planning, paying, organizing and pulling off a successful trip, and once you’re able to do that, you realize your abilities. You learn to rely on and trust yourself and know that it is you who makes your own decisions, no one else.

What GAFFL Users Are Saying

Marie
Marie Arroseres
from France

"It’s really nice to have a platform like GAFFL with lots of travelers wanting to do the same as you, a real beautiful cultural exchange. You can meet people so easily and in a trustful way. We were four girls, from French, German and American backgrounds, without knowing each other from before. We spent an amazing week together, 2000km driving, camping on the way. We saw kangaroos, koalas, penguins and pelicans"

Saed
Saeed Alam
from Canada

“I have found GAFFL to be an amazing tool for finding similar minded travel partners to embark on an adventure. Through GAFFL, I had organized a trip to Mexico City last month and Quazi joined the trip from Victoria, BC. We spent 14 days of straight exploring, hiking, eating and drinking. Quite an amazing experience - all thanks to GAFFL!”

Scarlett
Scarlett Mansfield
from United Kingdom

"I accidentally scrolled across GAFFL and I'm so pleased I did. I met Amaia and immediately decided to road-trip together. We're spending 10 days together and it's great because we have so much in common. Couldn't have done it without GAFFL helping us find one another! It has honestly made NZ so much cheaper to explore as I get to split the costs with someone too​"
