Safe and responsible travel

An integral part of becoming an Inspired by Iceland specialist is understanding the importance of Safe and Responsible travel in Iceland. Icelandic nature is the main attraction for tourists. We want to ensure that our visitors work with us to preserve our unique and sensitive environment and enjoy it safely.

Check out Iceland Academy, an educational campaign aiming to empower tourists to get the most out of their trip to Iceland safely and responsibly. Furthermore, The 'Icelandic Pledge', is a unique 'oath' for tourists, agreeing to respect Iceland's nature and to travel responsibly during their visit, and the 'Kranavatn challenge' encourages tourists to drink tap water and bring environmentally responsible behaviours on holiday. Integrating sustainability into our travel plans and other actions in life is the key to the global and local welfare of ecosystems, cultures, and communities. Therefore, we have gathered some information on sustainability and tourism to help you plan your travels in Iceland. It includes a carbon footprint calculator and visitor numbers of popular tourist sites, making it easier to plan trips and distribute visits better. Safe Travel is the official source for adventuring safely in Iceland and Vakinn is the official stamp of quality for tourism in Iceland. The Clean & Safe logo will show you tourism businesses that are working hard to adhere to government and public health guidance following the COVID-19 pandemic. Furthermore, Nap & Go is a project that encourges tourists to rest up after a long flight to Iceland before they start their journey in Iceland.
