The World Economic Forum has released their Travel & Tour Tourism Competitiveness Index, which named Finland as the safest country despite current levels of terrorist concern around the world.
The report states that “[Finland] remains the safest destination globally, despite rising concerns in most [of] Europe, including Finland, regarding terrorism.”
The report took into account data from 136 different countries, on things such as “sustainable development of the travel and tourism sector, which in turn, contributes to the development and competitiveness of a country.”
In addition to the safety offered, Finland was praised for its 39 national parks and easy to navigate national airline FinnAir. Finland is also a great spot to see the northern lights, which can be viewed over 200 nights each year.
