Warning - Tatrabus Adventure holidays

If anyone is considering an adventure holiday in Iceland the following could be relevant.

Quotes from 'The Iceland Weather Report' on Facebook:

7th August:
Quote:
A bus with 11 tourists sank in a lagoon yesterday. No injuries, thank God. They were all from the Czech Republic, including the driver, and had a hard time speaking English and knowing where they were. I don't like to say this, but I'd think twice about touring with a non Icelandic tour operator. Our nature is so unpredictable and hazardous, and the Icelanders know much better what NOT to do.
Today:
Quote:
Right, so remember the Czech bus that flipped over with the tourists a few days ago? They've been outed as absolute morons, known to tear up the Icelandic countryside and generally behaving like homicidal maniacs. On top of that, they've removed all evidence from their website, including the video under this link, plus loads of comments that Icelanders have written on their FB page since the event.

Re: Warning - Tatrabus Adventure holidays

It made a big news back home. Apparently, they went over a lake which resulted in the bus falling into the lake. The Islandic folks don't like tatrabus there, according to Czech news, since there was another accident last year, caused by an Islandic SUV, which ran into a standing Tatra, was driving too fast and was not able to break fast enough. The tatrabus apparently respects the paths, the travel agency ad video is just to get people go on adventure holidays, but the drivers do not drive like this in reality. Who knows.

If Island does not want them there, though, they shouldn't sell the license to the tour operator having the license or take it away.
