Tourism up in Iceland
Tourism in Iceland is up 17 per cent, compared to the same time last year, according to Iceland’s tourist board.
A total of 64,275 tourists visited Iceland in July, a record number.
“There are many reasons for the increase,” says Magnus Oddsson, managing director of the tourist board. “Most likely is the ISK 600 million (about $100 million) the government has spent over the past two years marketing Iceland as a tourist destination.”
In total, there have been 30,000 more tourists visiting Iceland this year than at the same time last year.
