Icelandic tourism Pledge, real neat!

The Icelandic Pledge is designed to promote responsible tourism. The campaign encourages people to pledge to not risking life and limb in the pursuit of a good photo and not answering the call of nature on nature, among other things. In recent years as tourist numbers have grown, there have been a considerable number of reports about tourists inadvertently putting themselves in danger in Iceland, whether in traffic or even while admiring nature. Minister of Tourism Þórdís Kolbrún Reykfjörð Gylfadóttir is therefore confident that the campaign will give tourists pause for thought.

After taking the pledge, you can then register your details and have the chance of winning an all-inclusive trip to Iceland. article
