THE END IS NIGH

Here are nine of the safest places in the world to survive a third world war

From the frozen deserts of Iceland to the built-up city of Cape Town, these places are all ideal for surviving an apocalypse

Nuclear war is always a lingering threat, and recent escalations over Syria risk reviving Cold War tensions between hostile nuclear powers.

When the end times come, where are the best places to hole up away from it all?

But what if we told you that there are some safe havens where you’d stand a good chance of surviving the end of the world?

From the frozen deserts of Iceland to the built-up city of Cape Town, these places are all ideal for surviving an apocalypse scenario.

Better get booking those flights before it’s too late, because these are the nine best places to be when it all goes Pete Tong for humanity.

Iceland

As Insider reports, Iceland is hundreds of miles away from any other land, so it shouldn’t be a target in a World War 3 scenario.

What’s more, it’s a great spot for fishing, so survivors would have an abundant food supply to keep them going until the world is rebuilt.

Isle of Lewis

This Scottish island is self sufficient and situated three hours away from the mainland.

Simply put, it’s a nice enough place to live without attracting any attention to yourself.

Antarctica

It may be a bit nippy, but in a worst-case scenario, you’d probably be safe if you managed to carve out a life in the continent’s barren wastes.

Kansas City

In the event of a non-nuclear war, this is the place to be. The city is surrounded by fertile farmland, and is the ideal spot to defend against attackers.

Yukon

One of Canada’s most remote regions, the Yukon province is well off the grid.

To make matters even better, it’s a mineral-rich area which is jam packed with wildlife, meaning you could get rich and eat well whilst waiting for the apocalypse to blow over.

 

Cape Town

South Africa’s wealthiest city, Cape Town could be a good place to hide out in comfort.

Since the African nation keeps itself relatively clear of Western influences, there’s a good chance that Cape Town will be so far out of the way that World War 3 won’t even reach it.

Guam

An easily-defendible island with a strong military presence, Guam is a wise place to hole up if you want to survive a worldwide conflict.

Bern

Switzerland simply doesn’t take sides, preferring to remain neutral throughout every major conflict.

And Bern, the Swiss capital, is easily-defensible to boot, not that war is likely to come to Switzerland.

The Swiss capital is probably a good bet, since the country has a long tradition of neutrality

Tristan da Cunha

This collection of islands is one of the remotest places on Earth, and is a top fishing spot.

We can think of far worse places to spend the end of the world than on a stunning island paradise in the middle of nowhere.

  1. Unfortunately, the article states in reality the problem with Kansas City: Too many antagonists today are ready to turn the next confrontation into a thermonucar exhange. Even though you may indeed initially survive, talk to cancer patients about life after radiation exposure. Praying for a more pervasive and thorough Peace!
