SafeTravel connects travellers 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 travellers 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 crucial travel hubs to keep visitors informed during their travels. Additional safety information can be found on the project’s three 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 8 am and 8 pm every day.
