Travel Safe: Great Countries for Women Travellers

4 mins. read

Female voyagers can expect to feel very welcome in these places! More women travellers than ever are traversing the globe and spending a massive amount a year on travel. Whether travelling solo or in a group, these countries are among the safest for women travellers. 

1.) Iceland

Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon in Iceland

The Northern Lights, whale-watching, Skaftafell Glacier and an almost equal representation of women in the Parliament - the Land of Fire and Ice and Feminism has much to marvel at, and is at the top of our list when it comes to safe travel. Travel forth to Iceland with total confidence!

2.) New Zealand

Mount Cook and Pukaki Lake in New Zealand

Beaches and fjords and safety? New Zealand or Middle Earth as The Lord of the Rings fans would have you call it, is a visual smorgasbord with lots of activities that are also respectful of and comforting for female travellers.

3.) Indonesia

Nusa Penida Island in Indonesia

Fancy some time off in a tropical isle? With its beautiful beaches, temples and resorts, and peaceful culture, Indonesia (and Bali, in particular) is very popular with solo or group women travellers.

4.) Singapore

The iconic 'Marina Bay' in Singapore

Sentosa, Colonial architecture, the nightlife at Clarke Quay, a mix of Chinese-Malay-British-Indian history, the Singapore Sling cocktail, great food and an impeccable aesthetic - there are so many factors that make Singapore the woman-friendly destination that it is!

5.) Bhutan

Tiger's Nest Monastery in Paro Valley, Bhutan

Happiness index? Check. Safety index? Check. Beauty and culture index? Check. Impossibly beautiful trek up to Tiger's Nest Monastery? Check. Bhutan really puts a smile on everyone's face.

6.) Austria

The Swarovski Crystal Museum in Austria

The hills are alive with the sounds of Mozart and safety. Furthermore, Austria is a beautiful, historic destination with Baroque architecture, the blue Danube, intriguing forests, picturesque Alpine mountains and much, much more.

7.) Japan

The Kiyomizu-dera Temple in Kyoto, Japan

First of all, honour-bound Japan is an incredibly safe country for women travellers. Bow before Mount Fujisan, drink some matcha tea, let the beautiful gardens soothe your OCD and live it up in Tokyo!

8.) The Netherlands

Tulip blossoms at Keukenhof Tulip Gardens, Netherlands

Cycle around Amsterdam, marvel at the tulips, enjoy spirited nights, lose yourself in a Van Gogh painting and revel in the mellow high of knowing you're utterly safe, even in the dead of night.

9.) Sweden

Panoramic view of Stockholm, Sweden

Sweden is so cool, it's frozen! With ice hotels, huskies, skiing, forests and the charming cities of Malmo and Stockholm, Sweden is a fantastically safe destination for women.

10.) Denmark

The colourful Nyhavn waterfront in Copenhagen, Denmark

Treat your mind to a Nordic retreat! Bursting with gorgeous architecture, harbours, canals and museums, Copenhagen is, in fact, one of the safest capitals in Europe.

Finally ladies, now that you know which countries around the world are safest to travel, which destination are you going to cross off your bucket list next?
