Legal framework for outfield travel
Parliament is set to debate a proposal for regulations regarding countryside walks after the summer break
 
 

A proposal for a regulatory framework for travel in rural areas will be presented to Parliament this autumn.

The Ministry of Fisheries, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Ministry of Health are working on a detailed plan on how to coordinate travel in rural areas. The overall objective is environment conservation – to help farmers in their daily work, preserve the rights of local citizens to travel in their own country while also respecting the rights of tourists.

Høgni Hoydal, the Minister of Fisheries, believes the government should be authorised to charge for travelling in rural areas. This authorisation forms the core of the new proposal.

The minister says that profits from possible service charges in connection with the current growth in the tourism industry will be spent on protecting nature, people, animals and plants.

The government will be carrying out a consultation round with the municipalities in the coming weeks.
