It’s that time of year again in Iceland when tourists are putting themselves in danger and needing to be rescued by volunteers. Actually, this happens all year round, but there always seems to be more stories around now as summer quickly turns to winter.
There are emergency huts all over Iceland, particularly on mountains and more remote areas. You can imagine what a welcome sight one of these would be if you were lost or in a storm. They are a visual reminder that in Iceland, nature is the boss and not you!
