Iceland has actually been named the 'safest country in the world' because of its low crime rate. It is so unusual for any crime or altercation to take place that the police don’t even carry guns on them.
However, in terms of risk of danger and injury, Iceland can be one of the most dangerous places due to its natural landscape such as glaciers, volcanoes and mountains. Here are some top tips to stay safe in Iceland:
Do not get close to the waves at Reynisfjara beach. The currents at this beach are some of the strongest in the world so avoid getting close (even for a photo, it's not worth the risk!)
Be careful around the waterfalls and don't get too close to the drops/edge.
Only walk on the glaciers with a guide as there can be hazards such as crevasses.
Check the weather conditions and road conditions before you travel.
