10 beautiful destinations safe for solo-female travelers
Iceland is a perfect option for someone who wants to spend time in nature. Iceland is full of some of the most magnificent landscapes that make you feel like you’re on another planet. Most people when traveling to Iceland decide to rent a camper van and road trip. Solo female travel is very popular throughout Iceland.
2) Bali, Indonesia
Although not every place in Indonesia is the safest, Bali itself is ranked high on the list of safe places for females to travel to. Home to many digital nomads, Bali is a great place to rewind, explore and meet people at hostels. Bali is a Hindu island as well.
3) Costa Rica
Costa Rica is another great place for solo female travel. I had a friend travel solo there to Santa Teresa and I, myself have been on two previous trips to Costa Rica. There was never a moment I felt unsafe at all. With beaches, jungles, wildlife and friendly locals, Costa Rica has so much to offer. Not only that, there are many work exchange programs such as WorldPackers which is a great way to make friends along the ways with your travels.
Australia is home to a large backpacking culture so it attracts lots of solo travelers. There are so many camper van and backpacking routes established so you’re guaranteed to make lots of friends along the way.
5) Scandinavian Countries (Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark)
These countries have some of the most progressive gender-equality policies in the world. The crime here is VERY low. There are so many beautiful landscapes and cute villages to visit during your time in any of these countries. Don’t forget to book a bubble hotel room to stargaze the Northern Lights!
During my time living in Thailand for four months, I felt extremely safe even walking around alone at night. The locals are super friendly and helpful. Thailand has a lot to offer from bushiest temples, mountain ranges and "instagramable" beaches.
The amount of national parks that Canada has to offer is endless. From hiking to camping and stargazing Canada is a great trip for those “Granola Girls.”
Inner and Outer Hebrides are great for solo trips as well as Edinburg.
Chile is another country with an extremely low crime rate and friendly locals. There are many national parks with unreal landscapes.
Adventure and tourism make up most of Nepal. It’s famous for trekking which is a great way to immerse yourself in nature. You can hike with local guides which will provide not only safety but life long friendships.
