Nature Pass Losing Popularity

The controversial idea of charging Icelandic and foreign tourists to see the pearls of the Icelandic countryside is making its way through parliament and looks likely to become a reality.

The results of a new poll suggest people are more opposed to the idea now than they were in April when the debate was heating up for the first time.

According to the poll conducted by MMR, 31.2 percent of people support the Nature Pass now, compared with 47.2 percent back in April.

Supporters of the two government parties are more likely to support the proposal. Older people are also more likely to support the Pass than younger people. And women are marginally more supportive than men.

MMR surveyed 1,097 people between March 9 and December 16.
