Our Mission

”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 information screens, travel plan submissions, personal locator beacon rentals and a one stop, up to date travel conditions interface.

Safety alerts are updated daily on the website in English, IcelandicFrench, German and Chinese. Travelers can speak directly with a Safetravel safety agent in Reykjavík at Laugavegur 54, via Chat on our website, and on Skype, Monday to Friday between 9am and 5pm (9:00-17:00). We’re closed on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays.
