Travel Risks in Iceland

Iceland is considered one of the safest countries in the world, and crime is virtually nonexistent, even in Reykjavik.

However, you should always exercise caution with your belongings and keep your valuables in sight at all times.

The biggest danger to you will be the changing weather in Iceland, as it can get very cold very quickly.
