12 Safest Places To Go During Nuclear War

Underground

The uber-wealthy tend to prefer this strategem, since it allows them to keep their shelter close to home without requiring travel during a time when, presumably, multiple nations are trying to wipe out everything that walks or crawls.

1

Iceland

The combination of physical isolation, neutrality on the governmental stage, and an inhospitable climate make it a tremendous place to stay safe from nuclear issues.

2

New Zealand

Bearing no nuclear arms themselves, having almost no military, lots of space to spread out, and being far from everywhere except Australia, this even has a warm, enjoyable climate to spend your end of days in comfort.

3

Guam

It’s a nice land, but backwards and isolated, with few resources and no threat to anyone.

4

Antarctica

You’re going to need to pack enough supplies, because you aren’t living off that land, and you’d better pray the nuclear apocalypse happens during summer in the southern hemisphere.

5

French Polynesia

More than 400 islands, French Polynesia is too scattered to really warrant an attack, and far enough from any shore that the water should sink nuclear fallout before it drifts in on the tradewinds.

6

Perth, Australia

Perth is place away from anything else, so should someone get trigger happy and start hitting anything that looks viable, it’s deep under the radar.

7
