When the Sky Falls

When the Sky Falls

 One of the most popular tourist spots in Iceland are the black sand beaches near Vík. In particular, Reynisfjara beach has become exceedingly popular, to the point that some have speculated that it is the inspiration behind a location in Frozen 2. However, many Icelanders think this amount of attention is far from a good thing. What the people pictured above likely don’t know is that someone died from the very waves they are playing with as recently as November, and at least four people have died in the last decade at Reynisfjara. When the waves there are particularly volatile, sometimes a ‘sneaker wave’ will approach without warning, threating to drag the unaware out into the freezing Atlantic. Icelanders are tough people, used to extremely cold conditions, intense storms, and even volcanic eruptions. Icelanders understand how deadly nature can be. As a result, there is very little idiot-proofing in Iceland, which means tourists may underestimate the danger of beautiful locations such as Reynisfjara. Moral of the story? Don’t run with scissors.
