Danger at Dyrhólaey, Tourists Ignore Closures

Dyrhólaey.

The Environment Agency of Iceland has closed parts of Dyrhólaey promontory, a bird reserve and the southernmost point of the Icelandic mainland, after a big rockslide fell 120 meters (400 feet) down from the promontory’s highest point and into the ocean on Monday.

The Civil Protection Department expects further rockslides, so visitors to Dyrhólaey are asked to respect the closures; yesterday a picture was caught of people who had left the fenced-off path and walked all the way to the edge of the cliff, ruv.is reports.
