Although daunting at first, travelling solo is a great way to meet other travellers and locals. If you’re looking for an ideal country, look no further! Iceland is perfect for first time solo travellers – built on tourism, its travel infrastructure is impeccable, making the Nordic country extremely easy to navigate around. There’s something mystical and intriguing about the tranquility of Iceland that can’t be found anywhere else. Here’s why you should cross off Iceland on your solo travel bucket list this year!

1. One of the safest country in the world

As Singaporeans, we tend to take our safety for granted due to the low crime rate in our country. Hence, we often neglect to take care of our belongings overseas, making us easy targets when we travel. However, you’d be glad to know that crime rate in Iceland is equally low too, so you don’t have to worry about being robbed or being harassed on the streets!

In fact, hitching a ride from the locals is a norm in Iceland and you should totally give it a try if you’re comfortable. That said, do trust your instincts and move yourself away from the situation if you feel like something’s wrong.

2. English is everywhere

Even though the official language of Iceland is Icelandic, majority of the locals are able to speak English, thus making communication and navigation around the country easier than expected. The only difficulty you may face is the pronunciation of street names and the information on food packages.

3. Picturesque scenery and landscapes

Every turn you make takes your breath away, and every shot you take makes an Insta-worthy photo. Go on the Golden Circle drive to experience and take in all the beauty of Iceland! You will be able to catch waterfalls, glaciers, geysers and more on the 300km loop.
