If you're an introvert, destinations which offer plenty of opportunity to escape the crowds are probably high on your holiday wishlist.

Comparethemarket.com has analysed other factors that are important to introverts when shopping for that annual escape. They include plenty of green space to explore along with small, family-run B&Bs to book into, plus essential considerations including affordable restaurants and lots to see and do.

Here, the five countries introverts should add to their travel bucket list...

1.Russia

The largest country on Earth, if majestic domes and secluded regions tickle your fancy, Russia might be the perfect destination for you.

With a population of just 146 million, despite its vast size, this country has more than enough space for you to get lost in the skylines or mountains, as there are only nine people per square kilometre.

With 219 parks and nearly 66% of hotels classed as small B&Bs or guesthouses, it's the perfect adventure for those looking to escape the crowds.

2. Canada

With its picturesque skylines and serene landscapes, Canada has something for us all.

And with its population of 37 million, Canada’s vast area means there’s technically only four people per square kilometre – allowing you to have the choice to explore the metropolis of Toronto, or the beautiful Jasper National Park on your own.

3. Argentina

Known for the tango and its delicious beef, Argentina combines the vibrancy of South American culture with the serenity of relaxation.

With over 258 parks, if you love nature this is the perfect destination for you – from the Andes Mountains to glacial lakes. And with a much smaller population than Russia at 44.4 million, there are some perfect spots if you want to escape everyday life and slow down a little.

4. Australia

A traveller hotspot, Australia is perfect for those looking to push their boundaries with an opportunity to explore the golden beaches or the wilderness of the outback.

A dream for wildlife lovers, Australia has around 192 parks and nearly 60% of its hotels are classed as small B&Bs or guesthouses, so you can go down under whilst staying under the radar.

5. Finland

What’s a top five list without a Scandinavian country featuring? With a population of 5.5 million people, Finland is often stereotyped as a nation of introverts.

Stroll through the lush forests, or wander the streets of Helsinki, there’s plenty to do to get lost in the Finnish scenery.
