A big draw for visitors coming to Iceland is its unique environment, just like how Chicago’s many parks and museums bring people in each year. But there are more things to be aware of and careful about in Iceland than Chicago. Iceland’s environment is fragile and can easily be tampered with due to its highly eroded soils. It’s waters can also be dangerous if not careful, the currents could be calm at one moment but then become super powerful. Gaining insight on Iceland’s environment before you go could save the land and yourself. From Vatnajökull National Park, park manager Gudmundur Ögmundsson of the northern territory of Iceland gave insight on the driving law in Iceland and the price you’d pay in fines for off roading and ruining the every fragile volcanic soils. He also spoke of what might happen if you stood too close to the South Coast side beaches when the Atlantic ocean currents role in too strong.
