Iceland has a long history of fishing. During the ages, the ocean was a harsh environment to conquer and many lives were lost at sea. There were also many lives saved. The rescue huts located on various locations along the Icelandic coast were a godsend for both Icelandic and foreign seamen.
This rescue hut is located in Skálavík, a cove in the northern part of Westfjords. At the time of this writing a new year is approaching which reminds us of the important role the Icelandic rescue units have in helping those in danger at sea and on land and that includes making sure the rescue huts still in use are available at times of need.
