The combination of nationalities of foreign visitors to Iceland remains unchanged between tourism seasons. This summer, as in previous summers, most tourists who visited Iceland came from the United States.
After US citizens, the biggest groups of tourists came from the United Kingdom, Germany and the Scandinavian countries, Morgunbladid reports.
Last year there were 485,000 tourists in Iceland compared to 9,300 in 1957, 50 years earlier, according to information from the Icelandic Tourist Board.
If the number of foreign tourists in Iceland will continue to increase by six percent annually, Iceland can expect 637,813 visitors in 2015.
More and more tourists choose to visit Iceland, especially Reykjavík, outside the summer peak season.
