7 Safe Places to Travel as a Solo Woman

Just because the borders aren’t upon at the moment, doesn’t mean we aren’t still preparing for when we can hop on a plane next. With so many destinations in mind, I’ve started looking at ways to make the most of my overseas adventures – and that includes solo travel.

I know that travelling alone can feel pretty scary at times especially when you’re unfamiliar with the language and the customs of a different country. To help you feel confident enough to travel solo so you can experience the beauty of the world, I’ve found 7 places fellow travellers have deemed safe for women to travel alone in.

Remember, the best way to stay safe while adventuring overseas is to do a little research, always let someone at home know where you are and have your wits about you. Smiles and good vibes also go a long way.

Iceland’s nickname may be “The Land of Fire & Ice” but it is not as intimidating as it sounds. Solo travel is comfortable and easy here.

The city of Reykjavik is famous for its music scene and nightlife, so if you ever feel like making some new pals you will find travellers from all over the globe here!

There are countless reason to take a trip to Iceland, but I think its natural beauty really does shine through! Join a tour and snorkel or dive the Silfra Fissure and hike a glacier.

And don’t miss a bath at the beautiful Blue Lagoon!


The birth place of Drake and Joshua Jackson, one of our editors went there a few years ago on a solo trip and she can’t wait to go back.
