The conclusion is based on a low crime rate and the number of prisoners in comparison with the country’s overall population, reports.

Other safe destinations listed on are Cyprus, Denmark, Ireland, Japan, Luxembourg, New Zealand, Norway, Singapore and Switzerland.

The Icelandic Tourist Board also points out on its website that recently published a list of the ten most dangerous volcanoes on earth and no volcano in Iceland was considered dangerous enough to make the list.
