tourism-boom-in-icelandAccording to the latest data from the Icelandic Tourist Board, the country has seen a record number of tourists’ footfall, 2,195,271 in total in 2017. In a year-to-year study, the figures are up by 1,767,726. Interestingly, the number of tourists last year was more than six times of its own total population.

 

 

The largest share of these tourists, or 576,403, hailed from the United States, and in fact Americans comprised the greatest increase of tourists to Iceland between the past two years. These tourists were followed by Brits, Germans, Canadians and French visitors.

 

 

In the last six years, the trend of visiting Iceland is more than during the winter while the summer tourist numbers are declining over the same period. Spring remains the least popular time for tourism.

 

 

Tourism has been increasingly dramatically in Iceland in recent years. In 2010, Iceland saw less than half a million tourists that year, but it has been steadily increasing since then.
