Tourism industry report

Report about Icelandic tourism

In recent years, the tourism industry has made its mark on Iceland’s economy and society as a whole. After the rapid-fire growth of the past few years, it has become one of the country’s most important economic sectors. This strong growth is expected to continue in 2017. But with it come a number of challenges.

Íslandsbanki has now published its Icelandic Tourism Industry report for the third time. This time the report is published in full in Icelandic along with an excerpt in English. With this publication, Íslandsbanki wishes to contribute to the provision of information about the status of the tourism industry. We hope the report and the excerpt in English will prove a useful and informative supplement to the extensive coverage the sector has so deservedly received.
