Are you a solo female traveller looking for travel inspiration? Want to know which destinations are safe before you add them to your bucket list or before planning your next solo vacation? Below are the top 12 safest countries in the world.

As a travel planner who specializes in safe and sustainable experiences for solo female travellers and women’s travel groups, I’m constantly checking to see how safe destinations are for my female clients. Whether I’m creating custom itineraries or planning a private group with one of my preferred travel suppliers, I want to ensure my clients travel safely in their desired destination.

I often refer to the website, Travel Safe Abroard, which ranks every country in the world (and their major cities) according to various safety criteria. These include: overall risk to travellers, transportation and taxi risk, risk from pickpockets, mugging, terrorism, scams and natural disasters, as well as risk to female travellers.

Each country is also colour coded, Red, Orange and Green, to indicate whether it is high, medium or low risk. Countries (and cities) ranked 66 and above are considered low risk and safe for travellers. Eighty six countries (green) are considered safe to travel (at time of writing), with 44 of those countries ranked at 80 and above and eight ranked 90 and above.

The top safest country in the world comes in with a safety ranking of 95. Can you guess without looking which country is the safest? It’s good to know that Canada is ranked at number 12, tied with Czech Republic and Monaco, and with one point less, Slovenia is ranked 15th.

If you’re looking for some travel inspiration to add to your bucket list, and would like to know the top 12 safest countries in the world, I’ve made it easy for you below. To see all top 12, just hover or click on each image, then if you haven’t already done so, add them to your bucket list.

I’m not an expert by any means, in fact, I’m fairly new to the topic, but since becoming a travel agent, I’ve become more and more interested in learning about different indigenous cultures. Below I share a little of what I have learned about Canada’s first people plus a few other tidbits.
