Destinations to consider for your solo travel

Chile

1) Chile

This country is one of South America’s safest. It is home to the best landscapes as well as delicious wines and culinary experiences. Chileans don’t commonly speak English, so it is advised to dust off your old Spanish notebook before you embark on the adventure – but they are all super friendly. Popular places include the popular hiking spot Torres del Paine W Circuit which is located in Patagonia and the remote Atacama Desert in the North.
