Lonely Planet is offering free iPhone city guide applications to travellers stranded in Europe due to Iceland’s volcano eruption.

In response to the widespread chaos caused by the eruption of Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, the company is offering 13 of its European iPhone guides free.

The cities included are Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Budapest, Copenhagen, Istanbul, London, Moscow, Munich, Paris, Rome, Stockholm and Vienna.

“Travellers stuck in unfamiliar places need access to practical information as well as suggestions on what to do while stranded,” said Shawn Low, Lonely Planet travel editor Asia-Pacific.

“That’s why we’re giving away iPhone city guides to major affected destinations.”

The guides will be free until 22 April from the iTunes app store.
