Tourism in Iceland

Following the economic collapse in 2008 Tourism in Iceland has come to play a more significant part in the national economy. The tourism industry was estimated to contribute to 4.1% of the country's GNP as of 2006. In 2010, 500,000 tourists visited Iceland. and an estimated 900,000 tourists will visit Iceland in the year 2013. Tourism, as a form of business in Iceland has grown steadily since the 1990s. In 2000, the annual number of visitors exceeded the total resident population for the first time. Since then, tourism has grown by about 11% on average each year. Jobs in the tourism industry were estimated at 7,385 in 2000 and at 8,211 in 2006 (4.5% of the workforce, compared to 6% each in the fishing industry and in agriculture). Tourism in Iceland is therefore a growing business and new and innovative tours are being developed every day. All these tourists in Iceland also need accommodations in Iceland which is another growing trade in Iceland.
