Download tourist handbooks for free

The Heimur tourist handbooks, which were published last month in three languages, are now available for free downloading. The books contain information about the main destinations in Iceland and practical information for tourists.

The handbooks, entitled Around Iceland, Rund um Island and Á ferd um Ísland are published in English, German and Icelandic in 90,000 copies every year and are distributed to about 500 tourist locations nationwide.

The books are essential for tourists as they contain a chapter about each part of Iceland, a list of local services and detailed maps where guest houses, camping areas and swimming pools are included, both in urban and rural areas.

According to a poll last summer, one third of all foreign tourists who visited Iceland made use of the Heimur travel handbooks and 48 percent of all German tourists used Rund um Island as their main traveling aid.

In addition to practical information, the travel handbooks also contain general information about Iceland, events that take place in Iceland this summer and photographs taken by Iceland Review’s photographer and deputy editor Páll Stefánsson.
