Safe Traveling in Iceland
We want you to travel as safe as possible!
Icelandic Rescue Squad
Each year around 1200 emergency calls are received and with increased tourism, that number may well rise. Locals, as well as tourists, may find themselves in life-threatening situations due to Iceland’s ever changing weather conditions or its volatile nature.
The rescue teams work closely with police and fire fighters, one of the main differences between them is that the rescue teams are all doing voluntary work. They heavily rely on donations from the public, so please go a head and show your support by donating to our rescue teams!

The Icelandic Road and Coastal Administration (IRCA) is responsible for about 13.000 km. of main roads and country side roads in Iceland. This includes planning, design, construction, maintenance and service of those roads. IRCA is also responsible for ferry operations which are all outsourced to ferry companies.
