Four Canadian provinces are offering unusual and interesting activities that might draw goal-oriented solo travelers.
You can "Live Like an Islander," on Prince Edward Island, learning to tong oysters, make moonshine (legally), be a lobsterman or try harness racing. There are dozens of island experiences such as these. Most, if not all, involve meeting up with a guide or other guests, lessening any potential feelings of isolation that traveling solo might kick up.
In New Brunswick's cultural capital, Fredericton, you can choose from classes in painting, photography, fiction writing, jewelry making, pottery and quilting. And then explore the riverfront city on your own. Or, perhaps, with people you meet in a class.
If you want to explore Newfoundland and Labrador for a week, an outfitter offers a seven-night iceberg-tracking trip.
Many travel destinations have classes and day adventures that provide a way to find companionship, as I wrote here. It's just a matter of finding them.
