The second most visited region was South Iceland with 72 percent of tourists heading south, while 47 percent visited Reykjanes peninsula, the southwestern part of the country, Fréttablaðið reports.

West Iceland was forth on the list with 45 percent of visitors spending time in the region, just three percent more than visited North Iceland.

Next on the list was East Iceland with 32 percent, twice that of the aforementioned West Fjords, by far the least visited region of Iceland.
