The Introvert’s Travel Bucket List …, #5 Reykjavík, Iceland
Beach vacations are an obvious option for those who like nothing better than to curl up with a good book, enjoy nature and be left the f*%$ alone. Still, introverts aren’t always in the mood to just chill, and these destinations offer the perfect mix of stimulation and serenity. Here, our 2017 bucket list for the 1/3 of the population whose rich inner lives are rivaled only by their IRL adventures.

If you go in the winter, you’ll get only a few hours of daylight per day which, we think, makes this the ideal destination for introverts who like to spend the bulk of their time curled into the coziest corner of a restaurant with a book and a glass of wine. It’s also safe and there are a lot of sights to see, which makes it an easy choice for solo travelers. Interesting fact: In Iceland, it’s typically the women who hit on the men, so if you’re looking to be left alone on your travels, you likely will be!
What To Eat: Dill, for locally-sourced dishes.
Where To Stay: Hotel Borg, in the city center.
What To Do: Blue Lagoon, one uber-touristy destination we don’t recommend you skip.
