MPs Want Tourism Risk Assessment

A group of MPs from all political parties have submitted a parliamentary resolution on conducting a risk assessment of tourism in Iceland.

Once the assessment is conducted, it will be evaluated whether or not to adopt specific rules for trips to the most risky areas in Iceland with the aim of reducing the number of accidents and other incidents in remote areas as well as reduce the cost of search and rescue operations, visir.is reports.

The proposal was presented in parliament and has also been discussed by the parliament’s Environment and Transport Committee, which has stressed that the assessment cannot wait much longer in particular given the increase in tourism numbers and the expanding tourism season into autumn and winter.
