”SafeTravel connects travelers in Iceland with essential resources to help reduce their exposure to risks and ensure a safe and comfortable travel experience.”
SafeTravel is an accident prevention project of the Icelandic Association for Search and Rescue aimed at providing travelers with education and resources for safe travel in Iceland. The project was founded in 2010 and has since grown to include a variety of features including travel plan submissions, personal locator beacon rentals and a one stop, up to date travel conditions interface.
The project runs a series of information screens at key travel hubs to keep visitors informed during the course of their travels. Additional safety information can be found on the project’s 3 social media channels: Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Safety alerts are updated daily on the website in English, Icelandic, French and German. Travelers can speak directly with a SafeTravel safety agent in the Reykjavík City Hall (Ráðhúsið) or on Skype between 8am and 8pm every day.
