A study conducted by Deep Knowledge Group shows that Switzerland is the safest country in the world right now when it comes to Covid-19 risk. Thanks to quarantine measures and lockdown, the country has managed to control the spread, and it is now reigniting its economic activity and easing measures.
Luckily for those who cannot wait to board a plane, Switzerland also happens to be a stunning country with many things to do. You can hit the slopes at Mount Titlis and rent a cabin there or try a day trip at the Swiss Alps where nature thrives over anything made by humans. You can stick to the city of Zurich surrounded by the Rhine Falls or take a summer day trip from Lucerne to Mount Pilatus.
The number of Covid-19 cases in Iceland is one of the lowest compared to other countries. With a population of 364,134 people, the state has only reported ten deaths caused by the virus out of 1,808 cases. It’s not hard to want to visit this stunning place, and the low numbers make it all the more appealing.
Probably the most Instagrammable country on earth, Iceland is loved by travel bloggers all over the world, and the photos prove it. Images of the country’s blue lagoon often flood our Instagram grid, as does the spectacular scenery engulfing this beautiful land.
In Iceland, the view of the northern lights is astounding. If you are lucky to ever be at the right time and in the right place, you can witness the awe-inspiring aurora borealis and their cacophony of colors.
The Maltese work in combatting the pandemic has caught the attention of the World Health Organization, the Commonwealth, the European Commission, and the United Nations World Tourism Organization. From a population of 441,541, the country has had 671 cases and nine deaths.
This freckle of an island has charm and enough beaches to restore the sense of nonchalance this pandemic may have taken away. Spend your days swimming in the blue lagoon’s glass-like water or head to one of the many churches adorned with gold and damask found in every single village on the island.
You can explore some of the oldest temples in the world here like Hagar Qim and Ghar Dalam or enjoy a nightlife that won’t quit in St. Julians. If you are lucky, you can witness a night of spectacular fireworks burned by enthusiasts whose feast was canceled due to the pandemic.
Coming in at a close second after Switzerland, Germany has been named the second safest country in the world by Deep Knowledge Group. With 195,832 cases, the country has suffered 9,052 deaths and had 179,800 recoveries.
Take a road trip of a lifetime and visit some of the most beautiful spots in this country. Let the roof rack basket hold on to your luggage and let your eyes wander at the scenery this country offers. You can head to the Bavarian woods and visit the Schloss Neuschwanstein, a real-life fairy-tale castle. This dreamy spot was the inspiration for the castle in Disney’s Sleeping Beauty.
You can take a tour of the Berchtesgaden National Park and marvel at this stunning place, which has mostly been untouched by human beings, left as raw and natural as they come. You can also head to Germany’s northern coast — Sylt, where dunes and serenity meet near the North Sea.
Out of nearly 5 million people calling New Zealand home, there have only been 1154 confirmed Covid-19 cases and 22 deaths. Taking extreme measures to keep its inhabitants safe, New Zealand has now eased its restrictions to allow people back in the country.
The only overwhelming thing about New Zealand is how big – you’ll want to visit every nook of this country. Visit the myriad of wildland this place offers by booking a boat tour or renting a kayak. The best part of taking to the sea is that you can visit some of the islands here, including Stewart Island, Waiheke Island, Kapiti Island, and more.
You can spend a couple of nights in a hut in the mountains or surf in one of its beaches like Koekohe Beach, Awaroa Beach, Cathedral Cove, and Wharariki Beach with its massive rock formations.
Now that you know some of the safest destinations to travel post-pandemic, it’s time to dust your luggage and get going. However, don’t forget to research any restrictions on the country you are planning to visit may have. Travel safely.
