A new campaign aimed at helping tourists to Iceland enjoy the country safely and more completely has begun, in the form of a series of educational videos.

Tourism safety has been in the news a lot lately in Iceland, but many of the risks taken at some of Iceland’s sites of natural wonder have as much to do with a lack of information as they do with carelessness. At the same time, there are certain practices of etiquette in Iceland that many first-time visitors to the country may be unfamiliar with.

To help rectify this, Inspired By Iceland has launched a new campaign, Iceland Academy.

“Iceland is an amazing country filled with beautiful nature, wonderful food, and inspiring art and culture,” their mission statement reads. “And at the Iceland Academy we want to help you get the most of it. Our unique online programme has been specially designed to teach you the essentials of Iceland. So by the end of term you’ll be able to travel, eat, and even shower like a local.”

Below you can see four of the videos Iceland Academy has released for tourists to Iceland, covering the gamut from shower etiquette to travel safety.
