Like the rest of the Scandinavian countries, Norway is extremely safe for female solo travelers. Why? Because these people are so damn happy and happy people just make for safe environments. In fact, in 2017 Norway was ranked the happiest country in the world, with Denmark and Iceland rounding out the top three, respectively. While Norway is a big draw for hikers and outdoorsy types, especially because of the Kjeragbolten boulder wedged in between two mountains that people just love to stand on, making for an amazing photo opportunity, there's more to Norway than hiking. Oslo, for example, is a beautiful city full of cafes and culture.
