Traveling solo can sometimes be a little bit scary if you don’t know the country you are visiting well. But, traveling solo can be an amazing experience. Iceland is the perfect place for traveling solo because of the following reasons:

You don’t have to be scared

Iceland is a very safe country. According to the global peace index, Iceland is the most peaceful country in the world. Iceland has low crime rates so you should feel really comfortable and safe walking around alone.

Everybody speaks English

English is taught in all elementary schools in Iceland. Most children start learning English around the age of six, and therefore you should be able to communicate with anyone, even though you do not speak Icelandic.

You can be completely alone

Iceland is a very sparsely populated country. Most of the people live in the capital area, so by getting outside of the capital area you can be completely alone with nature. We recommend that you get outside of the capital as much as possible. Go drive the ring road or go into the highlands of Iceland.

Easy to meet new people

If you want to meet new people to hang out with it’s very easy. Iceland is the perfect place to do day tours out of Reykjavik. On those day tours you will most likely meet people who are adventurous just like you.

You won’t get lost

Reykjavik is a small city considering that it is the capital of a country. Reykjavik has only 120.000 habitants, so if you stay in Reykjavik for some time you should be able to know your way around very easily. If you get lost, you can always ask a local for help.

Iceland is for everyone

Iceland is known for being a very progressive country. Iceland has the world’s smallest gender gap, and Iceland was one of the first countries to legally allow same sex marriage. No matter who you are or where you come from, you don’t have to worry about discrimination in Iceland.

Great place to find yourself

Traveling solo is a good way to get to know yourself better and to find yourself. Iceland is the perfect place to be alone with yourself. You can get out into the nature and explore the world on your own without any interruptions. The magnificent sceneries and landscapes, mixed in with complete solitude make Iceland the perfect place to find yourself.
