Traveling can be a bit scary because it’s not always the safest. Sure, you want to get out there and see the world, but you don’t want to see your money and passport dip into some criminal’s pocket as he runs away leaving you stranded in a foreign land. While traveling safe is something you can totally do anywhere, as well as traveling dangerously, there are countries where safety is easier than others.

If you’re looking to go on a vacation and don’t want to worry about pickpockets or thieves then go to one of these countries which rank as some of the safest in the world.

 

Iceland

Iceland is not only an amazingly beautiful destination, it is amazingly safe as well. The reason for this is because of its low population. There are just over 330,000 people that live in this country and they are all evidently pretty mellow. Iceland has been named the most peaceful country in the world so it should be a place where you can relax and enjoy without any paranoia unless you’re into that kind of thing.

 

New Zealand

If you’re a Lord of the Rings nut then New Zealand should be high on your list anyway. All of the films were shot in this beautiful country maybe because it was so safe. You don’t want any hobbits getting robbed. Even if you don’t particularly care for these fantasy novels, New Zealand is a beautiful place with breathtaking landscapes and tons of exciting outdoor activities. So head to New Zealand where you can hang glide without worrying about landing in the wrong part of town.

 

Portugal

When thinking of traveling to Europe many people often overlook the wonderful country that is Portugal. Portugal has so much to offer like incredible food, castles, and hardly any crime. So if you’re planning on visiting Europe, why not head to Portugal and see the beauty for yourself. The castles in this country are unbelievable and walking the streets you’ll quickly realize why this country is one of the safest in the entire world.

 

Austria

A truly awe-inspiring country, Austria is one that we would recommend to visit even if it were dangerous. Luckily though, this country is not dangerous, in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Not only is Austria safe, but so are the countries that surround this country. When you’re a country surrounded by the safest countries in the world, odds are you’re going to be one of the safest as well. Austria has some serious history and it is a place not to be missed.

 

 

Denmark

Denmark is known as the happiest country in the world which is a title you don’t get by being dangerous. They aren’t happy because robbing tourists make them smile, they’re happy because they’re so safe! You can see amazing architecture, amusement parks, museums and a bunch of super happy Danish people. So go get happy and feel nice and secure in beautiful Denmark.
