Over the years, I have come to realise that some places are most definitely better than others for us solo female travellers. Gone are the days of relying on men or groups of friends. Solo female travel is taking over the universe and becoming more popular than ever with adventurous women all over the globe. Whilst the world is not as dangerous as some people might have us think, I’m not just talking about safety. Some places are amazing for us solo female travellers simply because it’s easy to make friends and chill out in a comfortable environment. We all need that from time to time.
Of course, travel is exciting and exhilarating but sometimes it’s nice to lessen our guard and be in an environment we feel easy in for a short while. Whether it’s your first solo adventure or you’re pretty much the professional by now, why not consider one of these amazing places for your next solo female travel adventures?
Iceland is literally one of the safest countries in the world and the crime rate is fast heading towards zero. Not only is it one of the safest countries to visit, English is also widely spoken so you’re going to have no problems communicating, asking for directions or ordering food here.
The place is so hassle-free, and locals are friendly and completely non-intimidating. The city is so small that you can basically walk around it, but otherwise, public transport is easy to use here. Plus top Travel Blogger Megan Jerrard says that Iceland is one of her favorite places in the world in the interview we did with her (read it here).
There are so many reasons why Reykjavik would make a great stop on your solo travels. The Northern Lights and the Blue Lagoon to name just two, both of which are on the Jetset Bunny Top 100 Travel Adventures Bucket List.

This should be every solo female traveller’s go to destination. Especially so if you’re into yoga or surfing. I have never visited a place so calm and chilled out. Although it’s most definitely not one of the safest on this list and has its fair share of petty crime, there’s plenty of other reasons that make Bali a great solo travel spot.
The relaxed vibes here mean that everyone is super friendly, and the place is full to bursting with like-minded solo female travellers, holiday makers, yogis and digital nomads. From the yoga, to the surf, the vegan cafes to the meditation retreats, you’re going to fit in here without any problems at all.

Apparently, Toronto is pretty safe. Like anywhere in the world there are a few neighbourhoods that would be best avoided after dark.
The most appealing thing for a solo female traveller in Toronto has got to be the crazy eclectic vibes. The place is insanely multicultural, and Canadian’s are often named the friendliest people in the world.
Be sure to visit the vibrant Kensington Market neighbourhood. With constant parties, loads of quirky cafes and bustling bars, you’re bound to make a friend or two. Says it all!

Amsterdam, The Netherlands
Amsterdam’s atmosphere is renowned all over the world for being open, tolerant and relaxed.
To start with, the Dutch people are insanely friendly and laid back, and the city is crazy beautiful. Dutch pubs and cafes make for the perfect comfy places to while away an afternoon and even days. Everyone speaks English in Amsterdam which is always helpful and there is also a large expat/tourist community which means home comforts are never that far away. Plus, its super easy to travel about, just hire a bicycle and cycle away with the locals!

The hotels are stunning, hostels are neat, but for a really cool experience be sure to try a capsule hotel.
