Large buses will not have anything against the Iceland winter. Trust us on this.

[dropcap style=”one” color=”grey” text=”T” /]he fuck is wrong with the Germans? Team Total Iceland has written about his before but we do not hesitate of doing so again before a busload of German tourist crashes down a mountainside with no survivors.

First read this from just a few months back.

Last night three tour buses from Germany on tours from a German company with a German driver, German tour guides and filled with Germans had tremendous troubles getting across a snowy mountain ridge in Iceland. Enough troubles indeed that rescue teams had to be called out and pretty much escort the whole German gang of buses all the way. Afterwards half of the tourists needed the assistance of psychologists and accident-teams to get their heart rate to normal again.

They really should consider themselves lucky. Team Total Iceland has firsthand knowledge of how it feels to be close to the top of a steep mountain road in a large vehicle when the car loses traction on the icy roads and starts sliding backwards rapidly. At that point it is the luck of the draw if the vehicle goes straight off a cliff or if some tiny obstacle keeps that from happening.

In the area where this happened the local rescue team is not equipped to deal with a bus falling from a cliff. The nearest decent hospital is three hours away and the temperature hovers around zero degrees.

You have no chance against the winter in Iceland. Stop or die trying.
